ENTERTAINING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON? Throw a party that your guests’ teeth can appreciate too with some tooth-healthy tips.

Consider Appetizers Light On Sugar And Starch

Sugary, starchy snacks can contribute to tooth decay. Mix up your appetizers with some of these suggestions…

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables are juicy and scrubby. Eating them is a little bit like washing your teeth. They’re also full of great tooth-healthy vitamins and minerals. Try this recipe for fresh fruit skewers, or some Greek yogurt onion dip for your veggie spread.
  • Cheese can also have a cleaning effect on your teeth. This is especially handy if you have heavily pigmented food and drinks (like wine, berries, or curry). Here are some tips for making a great cheese plate.

Between the acid, the sugar, and the continuous sipping, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks can hurt your teeth. Turn holiday beverages into something that benefits your teeth instead by utilizing mouth-healthy super foods, like mint, ginger, carrot juice and lemongrass.

COVID-19 UPDATE - November 2020

Despite the latest lockdown we are still open.

Due to social distancing requirements and enhanced infection control procedures we are having to run the practice at a reduced capacity then we would do normally.

Opening hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm Mon-Thurs and 9.00 to 4.00pm Fridays.

Whilst we are doing check ups and routine dentistry we have long waiting times for appointments.

We also run a telephone emergency service during normal working hours. Out of hours advice is available via NHS Direct on 111.

Due to our reduced capacity we are unable to take on new NHS patients but can provide emergency advice and care if appropriate.
