The team have had their first Covid vaccination dose today. Hopefully this is the first step towards some kind of normality for everyone. It was very well organised at Deeside Rainbow Hospital, jab was painless, and staff very friendly. Dentist Judith is actually smiling beneath her mask!
We are sorry to say goodbye to Cathy who after 5 years with us has found a new position closer to home. We are extremely sad to see her go, and wish her all the very best for the future. She will be missed not only by us, but by scores of our patients who have got to know her so well over the years. Good luck Cathy, and keep in touch.
Thanks to Dave Edwards of RCMS for another excellent mornings team training on CPR and medical emergencies.
A team outing to Glan Clwyd Hospital today for Infection Control Training. We go on this course regularly to refresh our knowledge and make sure we are bang up to date with all the latest recommendations to ensure our patients are always treated safely.
We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary since we opened the practice on 2008. We can't believe how quickly the time has flown, and we would like to thank all our wonderful patients for their continued support. The team celebrated this milestone with a meal at Just Steak in Mold. Here's to the next 10 and beyond!
We are all supporting Christmas Jumper Day by wearing Christmas jumpers (T-shirts actually for hygiene reasons!) in aid of Save the Children. If you would like to donate, pop in to the practice and talk to our receptionist Cathy.
Superb morning of CPR and medical emergency training from Dave Edwards http://www.lifesupport-rcms.co.uk. We roleplayed common medical problems we may encounter in the surgery and Dave refreshed our life support training and use of the defibrillator. As usual, brilliant content! Thanks Dave. Let's hope all the equipment gets to stay in the box!
Dentists Chris and Jude had a smashing day learning about all the latest products at the Dental Showcase at the NEC Birmingham.
We have twinned our toilet at 91 Dental Care! This will enable a family in Malawi living in poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy. If you would like to do the same, please visit www.toilettwinning.org
Cathy recently attended the fantastic 'Reception Live' course in London run by team development guru Laura Horton, to help give our patients the best possible front of house experience!
Thank you to all the patients who so kindly helped us by completing our recent practice survey. The full results and analysis are available for all to read in our waiting room. Below is a summary of the results and some of the fabulous comments we received:
Chris has just attended a superb 'hands-on' minor oral surgery workshop by Consultant Oral Surgeon Mr Simon Moore. The course was designed to update the skills of dentists attending, and Chris thoroughly enjoyed the day. Topics covered included: how to properly assess each case, how to perform a multitude of oral surgery procedures in practice and how to deal with common complications that arise. Chris was able to practice the procedures under the watchful eye of Mr Moore. A great refresher course well worth attending!

Judith has recently completed the 4 day Perio masterclass for general practitioners.
The course is run by periodontal specialists Ian Dunn and Phil Ower of Periocourses. It covers many aspects of treating and managing gum disease, including non-surgical and surgical methods.
It is very relevant to general dental practice and Judith thoroughly enjoyed it.
Chris and Judith have just completed the Quick Straight Teeth™ course in Manchester. Quick Straight Teeth™ are an affordable, comfortable and effective way of straightening your teeth to give you a great smile. The invisible braces work by only concentrating on the front 6 to 8 teeth only. Quick Straight Teeth™ braces for teeth can correct mild to moderate problems quickly, making it more affordable than similar options and more agreeable to patients. The Quick Straight Teeth™, invisible braces system uses only clear braces (brackets) and tooth coloured wires making the clear braces virtually invisible in the mouth. Also Quick Straight Teeth™ braces are worn for only a very short time in comparison to traditional braces ensuring it is a fast, cost effective way to get straight teeth. Read more here about how to get straight teeth today.
Chris has now completed all four UK modules of the Core Curriculum at the Dawson academy on the Wirral, knotching up 92 hours of advanced training at this superb facility! This unique learning experience has helped Chris take his restorative dentistry skills to the next level to help ensure we continue to provide our patients with dentistry of the highest callibre. Chris intends to keep in touch with further advanced courses that will become available at Dawson over time so watch this space.
