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.

Dental related sleep problems are a nightmare!

I am looking forward to joining the Somnomed Sleep Medicine course at the end of September where SomnoMed will be bringing together medical professionals with an interesting program for all sleep specialists. The course provides insights on the medical perspectives, hands on training on fitting of SomnoDent Oral Appliance Therapy and the ongoing management of patients diagnosed with Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). I am really pleased to see that the course includes presentations by a Sleep Physician, Neurologist, Ear Nose and Throat Surgeons and an experienced BSDSM Dentist and it will be a chance to learn more about sleep disordered breathing from specialist doctors and how to fit oral appliances from an oral medicine specialist.

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.

Dentistry and Osteopathy

The Link between Dentistry and Osteopathy - Health is not simply the absence of disease or pain. It is a state or balance and harmony between the body and mind. In health a person should be able to respond to events such as accidents, infections or emotional stress, deal with the event and restore itself to optimum health afterwards.
