Mini Health Check
Corona Virus – Dental Update
Issue Date: 15/6/2020
Life Dental & Wellbeing is now open.
We are not running at full capacity yet as we are phasing our return to the new normal so please be patient if you are struggling to get through to us or waiting to hear back from you about an appointment. As expected, the way we operate will be a bit different but please do be reassured that we will continue to look after you and your oral health in a safe clinical environment.
If you have a dental appointment in the coming weeks we will be contacting you the day before to talk through the appointment procedure and ensure that you are happy to attend.
If you have a dental emergency please call the practice during normal working hours and we will endeavour to help you, however please be aware that there are some restrictions on the treatments we can undertake during the current Alert Status. Outside normal working hours and at weekends or on Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the Out of Hours service.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Ben Pearson and the team
Health checks prevent oral health problems
For many years the medical profession has known that those with serious health conditions are more susceptible to oral health problems.
Recent scientific breakthroughs have proven that gum disease is a contributory factor in some conditions and that people with poor oral health have an increased risk of Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes or Heart Disease amongst others.
In order to help you reduce your risks we’ll measure your blood pressure, blood sugar levels, body mass index (BMI) and analyse your chances of developing serious health conditions using a nationally recognised risk assessment tool called Q Risk. Then we will let you know if we think you should see your GP. We care about your health as well as your teeth and we want you to live longer.
