Welcome to our first newsletter of 2018! It’s been a busy start to the year here at Middleton St George Dental Care and throughout this newsletter we’ll show you a few of the things that we have been up too.

Smile of the month – Nicola’s Story

One of our favourite parts of the job is hearing our patients stories at the end of treatment, some people aren’t aware of how much teeth can effect a person and we love to see how much our patients confidence improves once they have undergone treatment with us.
Nicola first came to us in 2016. She was concerned about a number of things such as the alignment and colour of her teeth. After determining what Nicola wanted to achieve she underwent a course of Invisalign clear braces followed by teeth whitening, and for the final touch she had the old veneers on her two front teeth replaced. Nicola is now delighted with her smile!

“Thanks so much to Chris and his fantastic team, I am finally confident with my smile!”

Janet’s Story

Janet came to us last year, travelling all the way from Manchester, with a badly broken upper right tooth. Unfortunately it had to be removed as it was too damaged to repair. She was very conscious of the visible gap in her smile and decided to have a dental implant. Janet had always been nervous about dental treatment but had a very comfortable experience as we  used The Wand (syringeless anaesthesia) and the Trios intra-oral scanner (which means no gooey impressions!).

“I’ve just had an implant at Middleton St George and I was very impressed from the waiting room to the end result. The practice is very professional using the latest technology and equipment. I was terrified of having the procedure but Chris was very reassuring, compassionate and gentle. The procedure was nowhere near as traumatic as I had expected and I am very pleased with my new tooth. I would thoroughly recommend the practice and Chris to anyone thinking of having an implant.”

Also congratulations to the winner of our February competition Lisa! Lisa chose the Sonicare Diamond clean toothbrush. What would you choose??

Welcome Ruben!

We are excited to announce that Dr Ruben CP Martinez has joined our team. Ruben first qualified 11 years ago in Madrid and has been working with us for the past 2 years, but only coming in once a month providing private Endodontic treatment. We will now be seeing a lot more of Ruben as he will be providing general dentistry at the practice 2 days a week.

Ruben is a perfectionist which means that our patients continue to get the best care available. He has put a lot of time into completing a number of postgraduate courses in Restorative/Aesthetic Dentistry and Advanced Endodontics, along with his Masters in Restorative Dentistry with Distinction in 2015. He has also passed exams leading to membership of the Royal College of Surgeons.

Alongside being very busy with work life there is no rest when Ruben gets home, living with his beautiful little girl who’s favourite activity is definitely not sleeping, and wife who is also a dentist it’s always a busy household!

If you know any friends or family looking to join a dental practice then send them Ruben’s way!

Inside fact!

Chris and Ruben prefer going to the cinema alone rather than with friends or family. Maybe we should all give it a go!

Did you know?

We offer IV sedation. If you are nervous about having dental treatment then this could be a great route for you to go down. Intravenous sedation is an effective and safe treatment that helps you to feel deeply relaxed during treatment.

Chris gets gold!

Chris’s experience with Invisalign has now been officially recognised and he is now an Invisalign Gold Provider! Invisalign is a clear brace system that gently moves the teeth into better alignment over a period of weeks or months, and is much more discrete and hygienic than a tradition “train track” brace.

Age is not an issue – we have treated people of all ages from teenagers to patients in their 70s – Chris even treated his mum!

For more information on Invisalign don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Happy Birthday to our head dental nurse Natasha! She started working here in 2012 when she was just 20, now soon to be a married woman!
