New year resolutions - help choosing your dentist

We have been thinking about anxiety recently, particularly as we have a new therapist working with us at Granta Health - Amy Smith, who is a Licensed and Approved Thrive Consultant, fully qualified hypnotherapist, member of The National Hypnotherapy Society and the International Association of Evidence Based Psychotherapy.   Amy helps us provide a real wrap round service for patients at Granta Dental, especially helping them if they are concerned about visiting us, their dentist.

What is it about dentistry .............................

It is always a valuable exercise to be forced to explain yourself to someone else!  This happened recently when the lovely Jeremy Sallis from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire came to visit me recently for his Workplace Wednesday slot. It was great fun and we got our patients involved - hear Gregory and his mum talking to Jeremy about visiting the dentist in 2014 compared to last century! And there was the surprise appearance by our mystery piano player - although working here at the practice on the last Wednesday in August I think I have heard about three different pianists in the waiting room. Being asked what you love and hate about the job; why you are doing it really makes you think.   Having to answer succinctly - as you are not going to get much airtime really concentrates the mind - I did not know what Jeremy was going to ask. It made me realise that being able to make a difference to the lives of my patients is really important. I am so lucky to be in a job that is not routine or clock watching!  Sometimes it takes a long time to see the results of what I am working on with my patients; other times there are almost instant changes.  It is a privilege and it really matters - listen to what I had to say to Jeremy here.
