Corona Virus – Dental Update
Issue Date: 29/05/2020
We are very pleased to announce that Life Dental & Wellbeing will reopen on Monday 8th June.
However there will be some changes to the way we work which we will let you know about in due course, and we would appreciate your patience and understanding whilst we finalise our operating procedures.
In the meantime, if you have a dental problem please phone 07566 781469 between the hours of 9-11am any weekday morning and we will advise you as to how we are able to help.
Outside these hours and at weekends or Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the out of hours service.
We have missed you all very much and would like to thank you for your continued support of the practice and your understanding during what has been a very difficult time behind the scenes.
Take care, stay safe and we really will see you very 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.
