Personal training for your mouth!
Coaching to help improve your oral health.
We aim to help you understand your oral health and improve and support what you do to prevent disease and reduce the amount of dental treatment you require.
Prevention IS better than cure! We are here to help you to a healthier smile – in your own home, at a time that suits you!
Think of achieving oral health along the lines of getting physically fit. Physical fitness means different things at different stages in your life and is influenced by a variety of factors. Your mouth is the same. Oral health can fluctuate throughout life and the effort required to obtain and maintain healthy teeth and gums is affected by many lifestyle and health factors – not just cleaning your teeth. We help you get balance between risk factors and protective factors/actions right for YOUR mouth. We help you identify how this applies to you and what it means to your oral health which can benefit your overall health and wellbeing.
Q : When is the most important time to look after your mouth?
A : 365 days a year – not just the few days before your dental visit!
