Its a special day today for our dentists today, as Cotteswold House Dental Care, Gloucester, is celebrating its 39th Birthday today! We first opened our doors on 4th July 1977 with Dr Neil Normington and the helm, and we have continued to provide all of our patients with a high quality level of care and trust that we have built up over the years!
The ‘My Invisalign Smile’ app is now available for our Invisalign patients! The app enables you to capture consistent shots of your smile during its transformation. It allows you to compare multiple images of your changing teeth, side-by-side, and create time-lapse videos to share with your family & friends.
My Invisalign Smile adapts to your treatment: it offers the support you need, when you need it.
How the Invisalign system works
Unlike fixed orthodontic treatments where metal or ceramic brackets are cemented to the surface of the teeth and wires run between them, the Invisalign system works by repositioning teeth discretely, little by little, using a series of custom-made transparent plastic. Invisalign’s clear aligner teeth straightening system has treated more than three million patients worldwide.
If you would like to see if Invisalign would work for you, call us on 0145252024 for a free initial assessment
At Cotteswold House Dental Care, we prefer the term “Health Mouth Review” as we look at more than just your teeth and gums as we will explain below:
Why do I need a Healthy Mouth Review? A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.
Our Healthy Mouth Review includes:
• Tooth and gum examination
• Intra-oral examination
• Checking the jaw joint
• Complete discussion of your oral health needs
• X-rays (when appropriate)
• Oral cancer screening
• Estimate of fees for treatment
What makes us different? We will work with you to help to improve the health of your teeth and gums, providing you with a Dental Health Report at every healthy mouth review, preventative advice, and even take you on a tour of your mouth with our intra-oral cameras. All of this means that together, we can make sure that all of your dental needs are met.
How often should I have a Healthy Mouth Review? After your healthy mouth review, we will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next review could be as short as three months or as long as two years.
Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next visit.
Our Healthy Mouth Membership includes two healthy mouth reviews a year along with 2 hygiene sessions and 10% discount on treatment for a monthly investment of £12.10
We have recently had some fantastic new additions to the clinical team here at Cotteswold House Dental Care, and I’d like to introduce you to them:
Dr Kate Leeming:
Kate joined the team as an associate dentist in June of this year, returning to Gloucester, previously having worked at Gloucester Royal Hospital. Existing and new patients have all commented on how well she has made them feel welcomed and involved in their dental treatment.
Kate lives in Bristol and enjoys running. She also volunteers for the Homeless charity ‘Crisis’ providing Dentistry for the homeless in London.
She is delighted to be joining the Cotteswold House team and also to be back in Gloucester.
Dr Jess Pascoe:
Jess joined us in September this year as an associate dentist. She has friendly and cheerful demeanour and communicates well with both patients and colleagues.
Feedback from some of our more anxious patients is that they feel at ease due to her empathy and the clarity of communication.
She has shown commitment to further training and has started a post-graduate certificate in contemporary restorative and aesthetic dentistry.
Joanne is our most recent addition, joining us earlier on in December. She is an experienced hygienist, who has previously worked with Dr Steven Neal and joins us with glowing reviews.
Her gentle but meticulous treatment is brilliant for nervous patients, and she is hugely knowledgeable in her field, constantly updating her knowledge.
