You may have noticed that the , Grantham is pretty hot at reminding patients when their next dental health examination or hygiene therapy appointment is due. Regularly recalling patients is something that dental practices have done for many years – way before your mechanic started doing it to remind you that your car needs its annual service. We can send you a recall by letter, text or Email which every you prefer.
Many of our patients across Grantham, Sleaford, Melton, Bingham, Newark, Oakham and Stamford appreciate that regular dental visits are vital to keep their mouths healthy and to avoid costly dental repair work and so book their next dental visit before they leave us after their current visit.
Other patients in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire call us as soon as they receive their recall notification because they too know how important it is to keep ‘servicing’ their mouths to ensure they continue to work properly. But you’d be amazed at just how many people put their appointment reminder to one side and then forget all about it.
We take a preventive approach to your dental health. That means we do everything possible to maintain healthy teeth and gums, thus preventing disease and costly dental work. Visiting your dentist at least annually, but ideally six monthly, reduces your risk of tooth decay by 60 per cent and means we can try to prevent a problem from starting in the first place before it becomes costly and uncomfortable to treat.
As well as the health and financial benefits of visiting us regularly, it is also important to your appearance. Teeth and smiles are rated the second most important attraction feature, after personality, and the most important body feature surveyed, which included body shape, height, hair, face and eyes.
So, don’t be one of the 27 per cent of adults who only visit their dentist when they have a problem or one of the 9 per cent of adults who visit their dentist with pain – make sure you come and visit us as often as we recommend and feel reassured that you and your teeth will enjoy many more years together.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
