Jumping on the band wagon!

Jumping on the band wagon!

4th October 2019

These days we are all very influenced by social media and what well known people are doing. We don’t just follow logic when it comes to our buying choices. I have recently had patients ask me about charcoal toothpaste. Now toothpaste doesn’t need re-inventing, we have ones that do what we need already. Why would…

I may be getting older, a big birthday is looming, but do you think like me it is getting more difficult to do the right thing? We want our patients to use an electric toothbrush. Sounds simple enough but what about all the plastic you can’t recycle easily when the head needs changing? The same…

31st July 2019

This is the title of a report CQC have just brought out looking at Oral care in care homes which caught my attention. Now the state of the nation’s children’s teeth does make headlines and rightly so. Rarely though does the condition of are older people’s teeth get any attention. I have long been concerned…

Great staff = great business

1st July 2019

I have recently started doing some work for the Care Quality Commission or CQC. They inspect, amongst other things, dental practices and a dentist goes with the inspector when they visit a practice.

Nicely Sold To

11th June 2019

When was the last time you were well sold to? Selling has got a bad name for itself. If you are my age double glazing sales men spring to mind. More recently it has been PPI. Pushy sales people trying to sell something to you that you don’t want. It shouldn’t be like that. A…

Habits!

17th April 2019

What do you do by habit? What is your routine at home in the morning for example? The odds are on a work day you do the same things in the same order without thinking. Habits/routines can be very useful to us. I go to yoga every Tuesday evening. I don’t think about it, I…

Happy New Year! 2019

16th January 2019

So, how’s your year going so far? I am doing Dry January again. I find it a good way to lose a bit of post-Christmas weight and reset my alcohol intake. As a wine drinker it’s very easy for it to creep up through the year! So far, I am not finding it that difficult…
