How we do this
We offer bespoke personal risk assessment of oral disease by asking questions, discussing factors that contribute to poor oral health and offering solutions to help you improve your oral health and prevent future disease. We will work with you to create a preventive home care plan which suits your lifestyle and will support your wants and needs. We will give advice which is personal, practical and positive aiming for you to take control of your oral health and reduce future problems.
We do this by:
- Asking Questions
- Discussing risk factors and explaining how these impact on you personally
- Advising you (and your family if you wish) on what steps you can take to limit problems, have fresh breath and a healthy smile
- Demonstrating how to look after your teeth and gums using appropriate home care products which will be effective for your mouth
- Direct you to where you will be able to get further help
You will be able to purchase oral hygiene products recommended for you. We will also liaise with your dental team if necessary tor help you find a suitable dental practitioner to fulfil your needs.
Growing Smiles IS NOT an alternative to visiting your dentist. This is a complementary therapy where time is spent focusing on improving your personal oral care in a friendly environment without the distractions of the dental surgery.
We offer group/family and individual sessions. You can opt for a 15 or 30 minute coaching session at one time. Some clients like to choose a number of sessions spread over a period of time to suit their individual needs e.g. undergoing orthodontic treatment, implant therapy or cancer treatment.
