Looking Back At 2018

Sat’s Review of 2018

It’s been fair to say it has been a tough year, following the tragic loss of dad in June. Life has been a whirlwind since then and I can’t believe it has been 6 months already. This has flown by for me, whilst I have been trying to get things sorted.

However I know for mum it has dragged. Christmas will be a strange and difficult time but thankfully the children will provide a welcome antidote to the blues. Aren’t children amazing? Their ability to heal and remind us of the simple pleasures of life, the innocence of what used to be special, is so therapeutic.

I have been floored by the warmth of friends, colleagues and relatives who have provided invaluable support and comfort so openly and freely.

Our own Emma has had her own health challenges this year and we applaud her courage whilst wishing her a full recovery.

The practice has continued to flourish, thanks to my incredible team and patients. We have now introduced the exciting world of digital dentistry this year to help to continue to provide a gentler and kinder experience for our patients. This provides us with additional techniques to aid us with our goal of providing calm, caring and painfree dentistry. This latest technology and innovation allows us to be far more precise with the work we produce. On some occasions our patients can now see results before they commit to life changing dentistry. This can only be a positive experience for all concerned.

Michelle has continued to improve her skill set and after her latest course can now remove sutures. Her search for continued improvement and excellence is an inspiration to us all.

We have welcomed Danielle in to the fold, her experience has made our lives a lot easier, so thank you Danielle. Also welcomed Maddy and Lucy to the team.

Sean continues to build his straight teeth knowledge and skills and is now teaching the subject and passing on his experience to other dentists nationally.

Dawne was recognised with a long service award.

Congratulations to Balinder on the safe arrival of her baby girl.

Paula has assumed the concierge role in the practice and will look to develop this further over the coming year. This will be another service we will be offering to our patients, so that their dental journey with us is a smoother one.

Back in May some of the team completed Rough Runner and they all survived!! Thank you to our patients for your continued charity support.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and joyful New Year.


Homeless and Inclusion Conference

Finding out how to give even more back…

Homeless and Inclusion Conference

Homeless and Inclusion Conference

Homeless and Inclusion Conference

I recently attended the Homeless and Inclusion Conference in Birmingham, my first time at this conference I was excited to find out more about how I could become involved with providing dental care for homeless and excluded people.

Well the day certainly didn’t disappoint, it was eye opening, inspiring and motivating.

Speakers included dental & homeless charities, various professionals from the dental world and the talks I found the most emotional were those from people who have been homeless themselves. Listening to people’s stories,why they became homeless, their journey, difficulties and prejudices they have faced brought a tear to my eye.

One particular speaker was Sarah Harries, she was living on the streets of Leeds, had suffered a lifetime of abuse and had a drug addiction. However with the help of others and a lot of hard work herself she is now a Pentecostal Minister, studying a degree and married with a daughter, four years ago she was close to death. A wonderful success story to hear.

I will definitely be getting involved where I can next year, through Crisis and Dentaid and doing some dental nursing for them. It has also given me a lot to think about in terms of day to day nursing here and what we can do to be aware and considerate of people and possible traumas.

I also wore my other hat on this day and presented a table for Dental Mavericks, to try and spread the word about our work and encourage attendees of the conference to join us for our 2019 trips. Scarily for me I had to present a short talk to the room about the work we do.

Not having done any public speaking before I was nervous to say the least( although most would argue I can speak more than needed any other time no problem ha ha) I survived though, no eggs or tomatoes were thrown and hope that I managed to encourage a few of the dentists to consider us next year.


National Dental Nurse Day Awards

Highly Commended for Long Service!!

We are so proud that Dawne last week was recognised in the National Dental Nurse Day Awards. The awards are ran by the Society of British Dental Nurses to recognise the great work and achievements of nurses across the country.

Dawne has had a long career, she started nursing in 1977 gaining her qualification the following year.

As well as nursing she also works on front desk, nurses for implants, deal with various administrations for us and carries out all our nursery visits to talk to the children about coming to the dentist and caring for their teeth.

Dawne will have seen a vast amount of changes in dentistry over the years, she is a dedicated member of our team and an integral part of what we do day to day at heathDENTAL. We are lucky to have you Dawne.

Thanks a lot, bye for now


Welcome Danielle

We’d like to welcome Danielle to our front desk team

Some of you may have spotted a new face in the practice, we are very happy to welcome Danielle to our front desk team


My name is Danielle, and I have just recently started working here at Heath DENTAL.

During the short time that I have been here I have been warmly welcomed, by the amazing team I am now a part of, into a lovely environment!

And, I’m really excited for what the future holds for me here at Heath DENTAL.

In my spare time, I enjoy baking, socialising with my friends, trips to the beach and lots of family time.

Danielle, the team are excited to put your baking skills to the test!

welcome Danielle

Itero Digital Scanning

Itero – Digital Scanning Instead Of Gooey Impressions 

Finally, after what felt like an eternity, we are getting on top of the intricate techniques involved with successful patient scanning. It has been a very steep learning curve and as always with any profession, ongoing learning with new knowledge and skills acquisition will never stop.

We must stop and thank our willing patients who have often felt like guinea pigs whilst we clumsily navigated their mouths for the perfect scan. Without their patience we would never have arrived at the situation that we are at now.

Well, on Friday morning, we fitted our first fully digital crown on a scanned implant, and boy did it feel good. It is extremely rare not to have to make some sort of chairside adjustment to a crown, after traditional impressions and laboratory procedures but this new crown went on like a dream.

NO ADJUSTMENTS, PERFECT TECHNICAL FIT AND IT LOOKED AMAZING. The patient couldn’t wait to try a steak that same evening.

Itero Digital Scanning

The benefits to everyone, especially our patients are huge:

  • The process is far more comfortable without the need to impart gooey, sticky stuff into your mouth, whilst you try desperately to breath waiting for what seems like an age for the material to set.
  • It is far more efficient and accurate, meaning that your appointments are more predictable with less risk of having to waste your time coming back for a second fitting.
  • There are fewer adjustments meaning that your appointments should be quicker and less invasive.
  • We can even scan your teeth to determine objectively if you have an active grinding and wear problem. This is done by 2 separate scans taken 12 months apart and digitally comparing the loss of tooth tissue. NO MORE GUESSING.

We love this new technology and our patients who have experienced it do too. We will continue to learn about how we can further benefit our patients and fulfil another of our core values of being progressive.

The Dawood and Tanner Academy

suture removal course

Another day, another skill learnt

On Friday I very excitedly set off down to London to The Dawood and Tanner Academy for my course on suture removal.

Once I have completed my cases this will allow me to removed stitches for Sat after Implant placement. 

I love having extended duties and it’s great that as nurses we can get more involved in patient care. 

We got to do some suturing practice (not that we can suture patients) but to understand what goes into suturing and appreciate the skill that’s involved in doing it well.

I have to say I have watched dentists doing it for some time and yes I am guilty of thinking oo it doesn’t look that hard, bit like sewing a button on………well I now have a new appreciation of how tricky it is, and I will be sticking to buttons only lol


Birmingham half marathon

Sean Completes The Birmingham half marathon

Two weeks ago on a very cold and wet Sunday, Sean took to the streets of Birmingham along with around 11,000 others to complete the Birmingham half marathon.

His 8th time completing the event, he ran to raise funds and awareness for a cause that means alot to him, Cardiac Risk in the Young.

In a reverse of previous routes, the Birmingham half marathon started where it ended last year, before taking runners to Highfield Road in Edgbaston and down the hill of Lee Bank Middleway, once a challenging incline near the end of the half marathon.

Participants then did a lap of Cannon Hill Park and Edgbaston Stadium before turning back to the city centre after they reached Bournville.

Posting his photo’s after the event Sean said..

“Well that was a wet one! Back home safe and sound, and just about dried out and got the feeling back into my fingers. Great run considering, a comfortable 1hr56…. again!”

Well Done Sean !

Mouth Cancer Awareness

13th annual Mouth Cancer Awareness walk in Hyde Park

It’s 5pm on Sunday evening and luckily me and my tired feet have managed to get a seat in Euston station whilst I wait for my train home. I decided to offer my time this weekend as a volunteer at the 13th annual Mouth Cancer Awareness walk in Hyde Park. “Why are you doing that?” I’ve been asked …..”why not !?” I say. I’m so glad I did it, it’s been a great day.

Hyde Park is a beautiful setting for the event, how lucky if you live in London to have such a picturesque place to walk, cycle or run in. Full of flowers, wildlife and the people watching opportunities are endless. I was up early to get across London to help set up for the walk, arriving at 8.45am I met the organisers and other volunteers and we quickly got to work setting up the area ready for the arrival of the participants later in the morning.

The walk was started to raise funds for the charity and also to help raise awareness of mouth cancer and spread the word about prevention and early detection. Hundreds of people of all ages came to take part including survivors of the disease.

I was one of the team registering people, giving out water, t-shirts and then goodie bags at the end. There was a mobile screening unit where people could have free mouth checks and a survivor came on stage to tell her story. You couldn’t help but get emotional hearing her journey and then thinking of those who have lost their lives as a role call was read for some of the people being remembered.

It was great seeing everyone’s faces as they crossed the finish and being able to congratulate them, a brilliant day for a brilliant cause.

I would definitely volunteer again for this or similar events, I get a real kick from the volunteering work I have been lucky enough to be involved in and will continue to do it when I can. I urge everyone to try it, there are loads of opportunities out there and whether it’s a day or an hour of your time you can give, someone somewhere will be grateful.

Core Value Progression

Dentist Sean Living Our Core Values

True to our practice core value of progression, I have recently completed an extensive program of further training in orthodontics (teeth straightening).

My interest in orthodontics began over 10 years ago when I first started using clear aligners to improve my patient’s smiles. A few years later I then progressed into providing the option of using fixed cosmetic braces with the Six Month Smile® system.

While completing over a hundred cases I have always been keen to continue to develop my skills, to enable me to progress and undertake more complex cases safely, and ultimately provide my patients with more options and the potential to have complete care within Heath Dental. I have always been aware of the limitations of my skills and would refer a patient on to specialist orthodontists when appropriate.

So, over the last 12 months I have been undertaking a course organised by highly regarded specialist orthodontists, and having completed it successfully and I am now well equipped to take care of more challenging cases.

This will include those that not only would take longer than cosmetically focused fixed braces, but also ones that may require extraction of teeth.

I am also now able to offer some treatments to children, which, with ever increasing waiting lists and greater restriction of NHS orthodontic services, may be an option worth exploring.

With our affordable payment plans, orthodontic treatment may be more accessible than you think. Just speak to a member of our reception team and book a complimentary consultation to find out more.


core value of progression


Being a dental nurse is a job I love

Being a dental nurse is a job I absolutely love

You may or may not have heard of Megamind, supervillain turned superhero, well I like to think that if Megamind wasn’t busy saving the world he would probably spend his time working as a dental nurse. :0)

Being a dental nurse is a job I absolutely love, you spend your day with a variety of people, get to change people’s lives with their smiles, improve their health and build great relationships with patients and team members.

This job does require a certain skill set, daily you need to multi task, constantly learn and evolve, be ready for change at anytime big or small, remember a big catalogue of knowledge and more……so now you may be seeing why I feel Megamind is an appropriate comparison for dental nurses (except for the fact that he was a villain initially, no villains here!!)

Progression is one of our team values and one of my favourites. We have recently had our annual appraisals which includes planning my development for the year ahead. I’m excited to be going on a course next month in London to enable me to remove sutures for patients, just one of the extra duties as a nurse we can train to do.

You can’t stand still in this job, you have to be able to move with the times and expand your knowledge and skills and more importantly you need to love learning.

Luckily for me i’m a bit of a self confessed dental nerd and always jump at the chance to go to a course or conference. In November I am going to be attending the Homeless and Inclusion Conference in Birmingham to learn how I can help the homeless with dental needs.

I could reel on for hours about what I have done and want to do in my career but I will stop myself as I’m aware this is a blog not a dissertation ha ha.

I am grateful to have a job I love and that offers me so much variety, and also grateful to have wonderful bosses Sat and Jo who help me develop, thanks guys !!!

Read what our patients say about their treatment

Everyone at the practice is friendly and efficient. They communicate well about appointments and as a patient I feel welcomed and looked after. My dental implant which is now well over 10 years old, has never given me any problems. Mr Kelly and his team provide a great service. The hygienist is also very helpful and encouragingread more

Heath Dental did an excellent implant. It took a long time but this was due to the meticulous attention given to getting everything right and allowing sufficient time for healing at the various stages.

Pain free isn't just a statement, its what Heath Dental provide, I never fear going, and have been a patient for some years, although I think a friend would be a better word as they are a very friendly and helpful team, no matter who you are dealing with. Sat Kelley is my dentist and, as with all the team at Heath Dental, if any treatment is needed, or asked for, you are advised what is required and how it will be carried out, whilst looking at different options to achieve the best result, all fully explained, before and at each stage of treatment. Having just completed a course of treatment I feel really happy and 100% satisfied and very pleased.read more

Really impressed with this place so far. Having avoided going to the dentist for a time, I’d heard nothing but good things from friends that go here so I decided to go along. The receptionists were really friendly and helpful. I had the initial consultation with Zoe, who was also extremely friendly, she took me through all the options available and explained the costs. Although I’m not looking forward to any dental work I may need, I know it will be done well and I will be looked after.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

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.

100% Heath Dental in Dickens Heath, they advertise pain free dentistry, only dentist I've had the guts to go back to in years. My dentist is Nav a lovely understanding guy and they have even allowed me to book my own nurse Alison for my appointments too, because she has such a calming aura. If she is working with a different dentist that day they will swap her for my appointments. Hope she never leaves.read more

I'm halfway through a very complicated course of treatment with Sat and his team. I have to say that it has been totally pain free so far, having had ten extractions and prototype dentures fitted. The teeth are exact replicas of my own teeth and look so natural. All the staff are so friendly, it's wasnt often I used to leave the dentist with a smile on my face as I do now.read more

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.
