Pandemic fatigue

Pandemic fatigue

4th August 2020

Undoubtedly the early stages of the pandemic were hard. One minute I have a lively, thriving practice the next minute we are told to close down. At home, I went from having a husband away working all week, my son away at Uni and my daughter at school, to all of us at home all…

Kick sugar!

16th May 2020

How’s your lockdown going? Like many, I had big ideas of what I might do while off work! One of which was to finally read “kick Sugar” which is written by a dentist I much admire James Goolnik. James’ practice is in central London and his book hopes to raise for charity the Rewards project….

Beginnings

20th April 2020

When I wrote my last blog on having the practice for 20 years, I was not expecting the next few weeks to be as different as they have been! We went from not doing certain treatments to emergencies only to totally closed in a truly short space of time. We are now totally closed and…

Getting through the corona virus crisis

What a horrible time we are going through! This week it has seemed like every day it got worse. Yesterday I had to make the horrible decision that we would no longer be going to see even emergency patients at the practice. We have been told not to come out to help in the fight…

Back in 1999 I was working reasonably happily in Mirfield. My colleague there told me he was going to look at a practice that was for sale in Huddersfield. I will come with you I said, I know where that is, I live nearby. The rest as they say is history! 20 years later I…

How much sugar is in those Xmas drinks?

3rd December 2019

Christmas is fast approaching and the coffee chains all have festive drinks to tempt us. Personally, I don’t have a problem resisting them, as I don’t see why the date should affect my choice of coffee! My daughter, however, loves them and usually tries a fair few of them in the run-up to Christmas. We…

If in doubt get it checked out!

Mouth Cancer Action Month occurs every November organised by the Orla Health Foundation. They hope to raise awareness of the disease and encourage us all to be mouth aware. Here’s what they have to say: “By spotting mouth cancer early, we have a much better chance of beating it. With early diagnosis, the chances of…

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…
