Refugee Camp Volunteer Work

In June this year Helen Lindley will be travelling as a Dental Hygienist alongside 5 other volunteers to work as part of a Dentaid team in Moria camp, Lesvos, Greece. Please give her your support.

Helen told us ” This will be my first trip volunteering with Dentaid. The refugees in Lesvos are living in unimaginable conditions with the added suffering of unbearable dental pain; many of them have been enduring this for months with no hope of relief. With Dentaid I hope to help as many of these people as I can and relieve one small part of their overall suffering”.

Feeling the Heat? No Sweat!

We all enjoy warm weather, but if “Summer Sun means Problem Perspiration” for you then we may have the answer!

Hyperhidrosis describes a disorder of excessive sweating. It has a significant negative impact on quality of life and affects nearly 1% of the UK population. It is however a problem that can easily be solved, leaving you with dry, comfortable skin regardless of the heat. Our Botox Hyperhydrosis treatment can “switch off” problem sweat glands leaving your underarms fresh and dry all summer!!!

Dental Health Workshops

Our younger patients  had an opportunity to “play dentist” when hygienists Helen Lindley and Joanne Goddard-Gallery hosted Dental Health Workshops as part of the practice’s National Smile Month activities.

National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running oral health campaign which aims to raise awareness of important health issues, and make a positive difference to the oral health of millions of people throughout the UK.

The fun but informative sessions catered for various age groups with the Under 5’s ‘Discovering the Dental Chair’ while 6-10 year olds concentrated on ‘Better Brushing’. Those aged 10 and over examined ‘Sugar in the Diet’ and there were competitions and prizes on offer for all. Read more
