We want our clients to have better dental health than everyone else and we are always looking for new ways to make this happen, ideally ways that are simple and cost effective.
Top of the list is making sure your home-care is as effective as it can be without being too fussy. We find that most of our regular visitors are putting in a lot of hard work, but not getting the results they deserve. Many of you will already have met Esther Noland in the Practice; Esther has been with us for many years and has additional qualifications in promoting oral health. She runs sessions on Fridays specifically to help you get the most out of what you do to keep your teeth clean.
If you reduce the bacteria in your mouth, you will be less at risk of having future fillings. In addition, we now know that mouth bacteria are linked to heart diease, strokes, diabetes, low birth weight in babies and new links are being made all the time,so you are improving your general health too.
You may be confident that your teeth are good, but they could be even better. No-one can check their own results as well – EVEN OUR DENTISTS SEE ESTHER TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEANING EFFECTIVELY!!
Ask our front desk team on 01423 563344 about an appointment with Esther or discuss it with your dentist and hygienist.
In the UK mouth cancer is diagnosed in more than 6,000 people annually and kills around 2,000 people each year – one death every five hours.
With your help, we’re continuing to raise awareness and help reduce deaths.
Running for the duration of November, Mouth Cancer Action Month features the tagline ‘If in Doubt, Get Checked Out’ and urges members of the public to visit a dentist for an oral screening.
At Clover House we routinely check all our patients each time we see them as part of our examination protocol.
During November we are offering this service to anyone who would like to arrange an appointment, in exchange for a suggested donation of £5 to our chosen charity St. Michael’s Hospice.
It only takes five minutes, St. M’s get a fiver and you get peace of mind – and it could save your life!
Ring us on 01423 563344 to book an appointment now.
….or so my last birthday card said! (Complete with a picture of a mostly toothless chimp). Many people have missing teeth but now you don’t have to be embarrassed or struggle without them. Clover House has a range of highly trained people who are here to help you. We have FREE ASSESSMENTS with Jonathan Hughes who can make you really natural, well fitting partial or complete dentures AND if you think that you may be suitable for dental implants (the nearest you can get to having your own tooth back), he can refer you on to one of the dentists, who work with Dr. Chris Watson - a Consultant in this field. Call us now to make your appointment on 01423 563344
Make sure you are smiling even when the weather is bad! Decide that it is not going to get in the way of anything you want to do – whether that is spending time with family and friends or having a bit of “Me” time for a few minutes every day! (And if you want to spoil yourself a little, take advantage of our half price whitening offer so that when you are smiling you look fabulous too!!)
MI stands for Minimally Invasive which in plain English means stopping problems with your teeth before they start. Clover House have teamed up with Denplan in a National awareness campaign to promote the prevention of dental problems such as decay and gum disease.
We have always stressed the benefits of preventive care and our regular clients will be very familiar with visits to the hygiene team of Hazel, Kate, Alison, Fran and Rachael which are such a crucial part of maintaining a healthy mouth.
We are now also running “Hygiene Plus” clinics with another of our hygiene team, Esther, who is brilliant at helping you to get the best out of your home-care routine. Everyone who sees her comes away with a new insight into how they can boost the health of their mouth, even if they are already a good brusher.
Visits to Esther are currently our offer of the month and are great for adults and children alike. Everyone can benefit from a visit – our Dentists also see Esther and all find it really useful!
Ring to arrange a visit with Esther today and take advantage of this month’s special offer!
A great smile is important for your self-esteem as well as to create a good impression with people you meet on a daily basis. Many of our clients come to us for a cosmetic consultation and as long as their teeth are healthy, our next step is always to consider whitening.
This is because the process is so simple and can quickly turn a lifeless smile into a vibrant one! Even when people are considering further treatment to close gaps or disguise crooked teeth, we always suggest whitening first and sometimes the person is so happy with the new smile they decide not to have the more complex treatment.
Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder and in a busy town like Harrogate there are certainly plenty of places to be seen. However, we prefer to say that beauty is in the eye of the beheld. In other words it is how YOU feel that matters. So if you want to boost your confidence you should certainly work on your smile!
Incidentally, everyone should feel confident enough to have a smiling, full face picture taken and this is a good test. Are you? If not, contact us now to arrange your personal consultation, either with our treatment co-ordinator or straight in with one of the Clover House dentists. We’ll do our best to make you smile!
