A United NHS?

Chris Groombridge, Joint Managing Director of 543 Dental Care (a member of the Association of Dental Groups) and Teeth Team’s Chair of Trustees recently explored the possibility of integrating dentistry with the rest of primary care services.

He said: “As far as I’m concerned, the only way forward is to combine dentistry with the rest of the primary care services. Yes there are currently barriers that are preventing this from happening. However, there are potential solutions available that could be implemented with the combined support of the profession, NHS England and other government bodies.

“Possible solutions could include everything from training more dental therapists to counteract the potential lack of dentists post-Brexit to more initiatives like Teeth Team, Dental Check By One and Starting Well. It’s not necessarily about needing more money, it’s about investing the available budget more wisely for savings in the long-term.”

As part of this, the ADG will continue to work closely with all member groups, the government and professional bodies. Contact now to find out more.

100% Success Rate

Dr Mihir Shah, head dentist at Battersea Park Dental, has used Enlighten whitening products for around two years. Here, he speaks about the benefits that the products offer his patients and the practice:

“Enlighten Whitening is the most effective whitening treatment I have used and I have seen a 100 per cent success rate in terms of patient satisfaction.

“The whole dental team loves the Enlighten Whitening system. It is easy to explain to our patients and there are simple instructions, comfortable whitening trays and an excellent follow-up regime. Our patients find it easy to use at home but they particularly enjoy the surgery whitening because it gives them a chance to sit back and relax in our calming surroundings and take a well deserved break from their busy lives and treat themselves.

“The overall experience of using Enlighten has been transformational to the way we do whitening at our practice. The branding is ideal for our luxury, high-end practice.

“I am delighted that I am able to offer an exceptional product that is well packaged and easy to use. I would certainly recommend Enlighten to other practices.”
