Getting Back To Dentistry

What Next For Private Dentists?

I hope that you are all well and had a good, healthy weekend.

The announcement last Sunday by Boris Johnson, set in motion a few days of uncertainty and confusion in its immediate aftermath. Were we, as dentists, finally going to be allowed to get back to on work on Monday and look after our patients, as obviously we fall firmly into the category of those unable to work effectively from home? Team members were confused, with many messaging me to find out if they should be going back in the following day. As Monday arrived, we had still not had anything from the dental regulators and were left to investigate independently the situation of our return or otherwise. In a state of limbo, you can either sit and wait for something or someone to initiate action, or start being proactive. As such we have stepped up our efforts even more so to adopt plans to answer the following questions for when we eventually return –

  • What treatments will we be allowed to perform in phase 1 of our return?
  • How many patients will we be able to look after safely each day?
  • How many team members can we bring back at the early stage of our return?
  • Most importantly – How can we CONTINUE to make dentistry a safe environment for our patients and team members

So the week has been a hectic one, trying to plan for a moving target, with virtual team meetings throughout the week, discussing new standard operating procedures for the new world of dentistry, calming nerves, which are always prevalent during times of change and uncertainty and even a day spent in the practice being fit tested to wear extremely uncomfortable FFP3 masks –

heathDENTAL Blog

Do not worry, we will not be dressed like this – this is just a picture of the fit tests carried out to ensure that the masks do not leak.

The week flew by introducing new technologies such as virtual consultations into the practice so that we can help our patients remotely, both now and when we go back. This will be an essential tool to avoid our most vulnerable patients having to attend the practice for advice but is open to all our patients. It should go live today and access to it will be from our website www.heathdental.com.

My one regret was not spending any quality time with the family as the days were long ones spent mostly staring at my laptop screen or on the phone. At one-point Rohan, my eldest turned up and switched off my laptop at some ridiculous time of day and gave me a chastising. When an 11-year-old does that to you it does make you think. So this week, I have decided to wake up even earlier, get as much work done as I possibly can in the morning and then stop , fingers crossed at around 4, so that I can get do those that I can not possibly do when I get back to work, with the kids of course.

Myself, and some of my team will be in the practice at points throughout this week setting and training up in readiness for when Public Health England or the Chief Dental Officer or the CQC            ( whoever it will eventually be) give us the green light to proceed with re-opening. Preparation is key so that when we do get the green light then we are ready immediately to continue to look after our loyal band of patients.

Have a safe week, enjoy the predicted and forecasted sunshine, stay safe and I will see you soon, face to face or virtually. Take care.

Sat Kelley

Why Do Nervous Patients Come To Heath Dental?

I’m Sat Kelley and I want to talk to you about why people come to the dentist

Nobody really wants to come to the dentist. Most people are slightly apprehensive, some are nervous and some are petrified to come in.

We want to allay those fears. We are driven to provide an environment where your concerns are addressed. We spend time to understand what causes the anxiety and your concerns, fears and worries. Then develop a methodology in order to prevent that from happening to try and give you positive experiences to push those fears to the back of your mind. We can then provide a solution, slowly over time, tailored to each patient.

We have over 25 years’ experience in development these philosophies. The team has been together a long time and shares the ethos and understands how important it is to empathise and sympathise with your needs, so your dignity is maintained all the time and your problems aren’t belittled, and you’re not made to feel like it’s your fault because it’s not.

We have a fantastic success rate. Over 95% of our patient’s experience completely pain free, anxiety free, calm and caring dentistry.

If this is an issue for you and you’d like some help, then feel free to call us and we can sit down and have a conversation, no obligation on your part but it would be nice to meet you and chat to you about how we can help.

I’m looking forward to seeing you. I’m Sat Kelley and I’ll see you next time.

Nursing Conference

Society of British Dental Nurses Annual Symposium

dental mavericksNerd Alert !

I am super excited to have been given the opportunity to attend the Society of British Dental Nurses Annual Symposium this Saturday!!!

I am sure a lot of people would think I am a bit strange for choosing to go to a conference in my free time but i am genuinely excited for it.

So off to Derby I will go for a day full of learning and networking, with fellow dental nurses and great speakers, some really interesting topics on the schedule for the day including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which interests me.

I will also be spending the day with fellow Dental Maverick Gina, who is also attending. I can’t wait to have my quality time with my fellow dental nerd

Tell you all about it next week !

Disney to Dentistry

Carol Goes To London For An Inspirational Course

Anyone that walks in to my home, might be mistaken in to thinking they have just walked in to a Disney store!!

To say I like Disney is an understatement! So imagine my excitement to when I hear about a course called “Disney to Dentistry”.

So on Saturday I went down to London for this course & it did not disappoint.

I found the day very informative and can not wait to share my findings with the team.

Bev Is Getting Braces

Her straight teeth journey is about to begin

Our Bev will soon be starting her journey to straight teeth with Sean, here she tells us why she has decided to have #clearcorrect

“I have been self conscious about my smile for many years, always avoiding photographs whenever possible. I had braces as a child for 4 years, but over time, they have moved and crowded together again.

I had a consultation probably about 9 years ago now, and because I am a complex case, I was told I would need to see an orthodontist and probably need an operation to correct a few things. My children were only small at that time, so this was not an option I wanted to take. Now as time has moved on, technologies change, I had another consultation with Sean, who did a digital scan (no yucky impressions) and re assessed my case. It was really nice to be able to see what my teeth will look like after the treatment is complete.

Now I can have cosmetic straightening with clear aligners and no operation just a tooth extraction to make a bit of space to allow the teeth to move. While I am a little nervous about having a tooth extracted, it’s not as frightening as having to have a general anaesthetic and have a big recovery time. So soon I will begin my journey to being able to smile with confidence”

Big Plans For The Rest Of The Year

Mavericks trip to Essaouira in Morocco

January, the month you start to think about your big plans for the rest of the year. For me am I lucky enough to have two exciting trips in the first part of 2019. Santa (or Dom as he is known, my other half) very kindly gifted me a weekend in Italy for Christmas which I am super excited about. Any tips for the lakes and Verona are very welcome please 🙂

That weekend will set me up nicely then to be refreshed and relaxed for a week away that involves hard work but equally a bigger reward back………my 2019 Mavericks trip to Essaouira in Morocco!!! This will be my first time in Essaouira and as ever we will be setting up clinic, providing much needed relief from dental pain for the local community as well as fluoride applications and tooth brushing instruction and products.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us and helped raise funds for #dentalmavericks In 2018 we raised a whopping £2314.67 at #heathDENTAL this is all thanks to our patients, the team and some of our suppliers so THANK YOU all !!!!!!

It’s an amazing total and every penny goes to providing dental care in Morocco and Lebanon.

Keep following us on Facebook, Instagram and on our website if you would like to see more of my travels in Essaouira, there will be plenty of pics to come in April.

Monies raised throughout 2018

Fund Raising at Heath Dental

Michelle here. I have totalled up what the practice raised last year for Dental Mavericks and our total was £2,314.67!

The money came from Rough Runner, the collection tin we have at reception, Sat’s donation on behalf of his father, and the lovely handmade gifts our patient donated in December.

Thanks a lot to everyone who donated.

celebrating a milestone

Christmas is a time of celebration

Christmas is a time of celebration, however this year I am celebrating a milestone for myself on Christmas Eve. This day means so much to me, as I am celebrating being cancer free for 5 years. I cannot believe it’s been over 5 years since I was told the worst thing anyone of us wants to hear, and at that time thought I had no future.

Going through the cancer treatment has changed me and made me realise, I am a lot stronger than I ever imagined. To be positive about life, however some days this is hard!! To keep me in the right frame of mind, is my daughter Candice and it’s such a joy watching her growing in to a lovely young lady.

I have also realised if I can go through this I can do anything. Five years ago I was too scared to have a tattoo, I now have 3!! In the summer I volunteered to hold a tarantula and a snake, and if you know me, you would know this was not an easy thing to do.

So on tonight, I will be having a glass of fizz or 2 to celebrate. Have a great Christmas & best wishes for 2019

What can I say? Absolutely fantastic service and customer care. I had a tooth removed and, being a complete coward when it comes to a visit to the Dentist, was dreading it. Naveen, Dawn and the whole team were so understanding and talked me through the whole process. The after care was outstanding and I’m now actually looking forward to my next visit. Thank you all. 😊read more

After not being registered with a dentist for about six years, I managed to get an appointment with Heath Dental. I was quite anxious about going (I’m not the greatest dental patient!) but I was made to feel extremely welcome at the practice from the very start. The dentist, Joanna, was very mindful of my slight anxiousness when performing my oral health assessment and talked me through everything she was doing, frequently pausing to check that I was OK. It was probably the most thorough check-up I’ve ever had! And because of the commentary to put me at ease, it was probably one of the most interesting check-ups, too!A couple of days later, I had an appointment with the hygienist (Victoria). Again, she was incredibly friendly and talked me through everything she was doing. She also talked me through various options for looking after the ongoing health of my teeth and gums. In fact, the one thing that really struck me from both appointments was that my oral health was being scored and that they were really keen to improve it - not just to book me in for a regular appointment, but to actually help me improve my oral health going forward (with a commitment from me as well).All in all, I was hugely impressed and it wasn’t at all the terrifying experience I’d built up in my mind!read more

As a extremely nervous patient I couldn’t recommend this dentists or Naveed enough. He answers my questions, doesn’t keep my waiting long and gets the job done as fast a possible. I also go to see Lucy regularly to get my teeth cleaned and she is the most patient, lovely and kind person. You aren’t a number at this dentist, they really take pride in your care and take things at your pace.read more

Heath dental practice is exceptional. Flexible appointments, welcoming and caring staff.Majority of my dental treatment was done by Dr. Sat Kelley. Courtesy, kindness and the ability to make a patient feel welcome are the qualities that defines Dr. Sat!Dr. Sat Kelley goes above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and reassured his treatment plans and detailed explaination of your check up. Treatment was professional, thorough and pain free.I would recommend this practice without any hesitation.read more

When I first met Sat Kelley it was over ZoomHe was in his house, I was in my roomMy teeth had gone downhill by a country mileHe promised he’d help me get back my smileAfter many appointments we started in earnestFor 8 weeks I slept on my couchThey say they are pain free and I think ‘You jest’But I was never in pain or said ‘Ouch’I’ve lost count of the hours I sat in that chairMy second home it seemed to becomeFrom reception to nurses and hygienist tooAll the staff care for you and then someAfter 14 long months it’s finally doneI now have new teeth and they’re greatI’d recommend Heath Dental to anyone askingI’m 66 - and it’s never too lateI can't recommend Heath Dental highly enough. I'm not scared of the dentist but I don't like some of the injections. Sat always talked me through every stage and gave me time by numbing the roof of my mouth before using the syringe, thereby stopping all the pain that I was dreading.I now have a full set of bottom teeth and a new denture at the top which looks much more natural than previously. Although it did not affect anyone else I am much more confident in the way I feel and look.They are also wonderful in their aftercare - I have received calls from both Sat and Emma asking if everything is ok after I completed my treatment - 5* service.Thank you to everyone from the receptionists to the nurses , hygienist and of course Sat himself.read more

I did the 6 month smile with Joanna and I cannot believe how amazing the service, level of detail and end result were.I had been wanting to have my teeth straightened for years after noticing gaps that were newly forming and also, after years of not feeling very confident about my smile.Joanna gave me a really good initial consultation where she explained everything really well and in a format which I could understand.From start to finish, despite how anxious I was about going to the dentist, I was made to feel comfortable and listened to if I had any concerns.When my braces finally came off, Joanna explained the whitening process to me and also gave me flowers as a congratulations for my new smile!Super happy with my experience here, could not have asked for anything better 😊read more

Heath Dental practice is the most professional and competent dental practice I have ever attended. The staff and dentists are so polite and attentive and my recent treatments with Sat Kelley have given me none of the usual unpleasant feelings that I have always had with visiting the dentist. I would recomend this practice especially to anyone who has fear of attending the dentist to give them a try.I recently convinced my wife to go there for her treatment with Sat Kelley and she has been terrified of the "dentists chair" for over 50 years.When she came out of her 1st treatment last week I asked her "how was it" and her response was truly unbelieveable - "It was fantastic and Sat Kelley is one of the nicest people I have ever met, he was so caring and friendly which made me feel so relaxed for tyhe whole time I was in the chair that I have already booked my next treatment in 2 months time and am not reluctant about going like I usually am".read more

I was so nervous and full of anxiety that I wanted to run in fear of what people had told me from their experiences with their dentists.

I have been visiting Heath Dental since the practice first opened and after visiting Mr Kelly this week I thought why have I never given them a true review.On entering the practice it is extremely clean looking and very welcoming. The staff are always smiling and know me on first name terms. It's always lovely to have a chat whilst waiting, which is never very long as most of my visits I am seen on time.I love going to the dentist, I love the feeling of knowing I'm in great oral health and showing off my lovely clean gnashers!But I understand many people do not feel that way. I've had to have 2 root canal filling of late and further treatment of crowns fitted. I cannot express the confidence I have in Mr Kelly. When they say pain free dentistry they mean it. I am even brave enough to go anaesthetic free now. The care and attention they give to all their patients is above and beyond. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.Don't ever be scared of this dentist.read more

The only dentist I am happy to visit, all staff friendly and greet you with a smile. Treatment painless and most important, they will fit you in if you have a problem. No long wait in pain. Need a dentist, need a different better dentist, go to this practice.

After a few dentists told me I needed a crown on my chipped front tooth I finally came across Joanna who told me she could build it instead of putting a crown on it. I finally had it done today and the result is fantastic! Thank you so much Joanna

The Heath Dental Team get customer care right. They provide an excellent standard of care from reception, nurses and dentist. I always feel like I am being looked after and treated with respect, being kept informed and involved in the process. I had my first filling recently and I was expecting it to be painful, but it wasn't at all. I drive a fair way to see Sat Kelley and the team and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else as I trust Heath Dental to get it right for me. Thank you!read more

Amazing team. Friendly and confident. My daughter was really nervous and you did so well with her. My son actually opened his mouth and got his teeth counted at his first appointment. Thankyou �

I've been a very happy customer here now for several years. I first got in touch with Sean Power to get advice about teeth straightening, we decided to go down the "Six Months Smiles" route and it's the best thing I ever did! My twin sister was so jealous of my smile she went to see Sean too!! Friendly, caring service which I highly recommend.read more

Absolutely amazing dentists.I have to say, my 2 hour appointment was the most comfortable ever. Didn't feel any discomfort even though a lot of work was being done to my teeth. The dentists are super friendly and professional. Definitely glad I am their patient now. Perfect teeth soon.
