2018 Issue 8

A warm welcome to our 2018 newsletter, we hope you find the articles interesting and we look forward to seeing you at your next visit.

Welcome to Peter Doyle

“Six months into my role and I will have now met most of my patients at least once. It has been great to meet and get to know everyone and take over a well maintained list from my predecessor Ruth Balhatchet. I look forward to meeting a few more and of course, seeing those I have already met, again soon. Ivory has been a fantastic place to start working in, proving to be a practice that promotes good relationship building with patients and providing the best possible care. I am coming to the end of a postgraduate diploma in restorative implantology, gaining skills I will be able to use daily to provide even more comprehensive and quality treatments for my patients."

Welcome To Matthew Kilcoyne

“I am very lucky to have inherited such great patients who have all been very well looked after by Icky Abrol. Thank you to all of the patients I have met so far for being so welcoming in my first few months. I feel Ivory Dental Care has the perfect environment for me to thrive, in my dental career. I am always looking to advance and broaden my dental skills, which ultimately means I can deliver a wider range of treatment options to my patients. I enjoy building strong working relationships with my patients and helping people to smile with confidence. I am very excited to have taken my first steps in what I feel will be an exhilarating and rewarding career at Ivory Dental Care.”

Help us fight Oral Cancer

Cancers of the head and neck are diagnosed in 12,000 people annually and kills over 4000 each year. The main causes are smoking, excessive alcohol, diet and human papilloma virus.

Mouth cancer often doesn’t cause any symptoms in the early stages. This is why it is so important to see your dentist at least once a year.

If you know somebody who might benefit from a dental health check, please encourage them to contact us.

Whitegate Drive refurbishment

After a lot of consideration and planning it was decided to bring our Whitegate Drive practice into the 21st century. It is great to see how an old building has accepted a contemporary look so well. The Practice Manager Elena, can also add another string to her bow, as she project managed the transformation.

We hope you like it.
