Inglewood House is delighted to have been awarded the ‘Commitment to Investing in Staff’ prize recently. The practice’s continuous commitment to our staff training and development was celebrated in style at Bury College. Inglewood House Dental Practice was selected out of the hundreds of local companies by Bury College Business Solutions. The practice was chosen for its high standards in training; this year alone we are delighted to have assisted three of our trainees to become fully qualified dental nurses.
Karen Dorrington, Business Manager, Stephanie Marrison, Practice Team Manager and Emma Neary, Head Nurse attended the event to collect the award on behalf of the practice.
Although our own costs have continued to rise, the partners have taken the decision not to increase private treatment prices for the third consecutive year. Furthermore, we have once again extended the Whitening Tuesday offer, knocking £100 off this Zoom! treatment, if it is performed by our hygienist on a Tuesday. These decisions reflect our desire to remain very competitive and reward our loyal patients in these difficult times.
Your support is really appreciated and valued greatly.
We have recently instigated a new policy regarding the collection of NHS and private charges. All NHS and private fees will be requested prior to treatment in order to ensure efficient collection of government revenue and to reduce queues at the desk. Most of our patients will now be able to leave the practice without re-visiting the desk after their examination
because they have already paid on arrival. Only patients who need to book a further appointment will need to return to the desk. Dental care plan members will continue to receive their examinations and hygiene visits without charge in line with their plan benefits.
We hope that this policy will also reduce the amount of wasted appointments by patients who fail to attend, which will increase the choice of appointments available.
There are still a couple of hyperhidrosis treatments available at the discounted fee of only £300.
This treatment hardly hurts much at all according to patients whom have had it at the practice. If you need a little reassurance about the effectiveness of this treatment, then read on.
We are always delighted to receive your words of gratitude, and on this occasion, the benefit the patient has received is worth sharing. Katie Hodgson is a working mum, like many of us. She spends her days rushing between the school run, the office, after-school activities etc, fighting the clock and getting hot and flustered in the process. She was anxious
about the thought of getting hot in public, her doctor put her on Beta Blockers but she was concerned that she didn’t think this was a suitable long-term solution. A friend suggested Botox could help and after some research she took the plunge.
Our patient thanked us saying, ‘’I’m over the moon, I never think twice about what I can wear and don’t need a cover-up cardigan, let the sunshine!’’ Our patient had the simple and quick Underarm Botox treatment and thinks ‘’it’s the best kept secret, what a confidence boost!’’ She has generously allowed us to reprint her comments in order that other people
can stop worrying about this common problem.
The practice has offered a saving of £100 off this treatment for the first ten patients, so what are you waiting for?
Caroline Culshaw, Rob Dorrington and Ian Dorrington bought ‘Simpkins Dental Practice’ back in January 2005, and it wasn’t long before the wave of improvements began, including: a new private surgery, waiting room, reception lounge and desk area, modernisation of three surgeries, computerisation to name but a few. Hopefully, you are are as happy as we are with the way the practice has developed, and we still have many more improvements to make so watch this space.
We are delighted to commemorate the first five year’s of business by offering all our loyal plan members a free air flow treatment, to remove staining caused by food, drink and tobacco. This free gift will be available during the next three months, up until 1st December 2010. Simply ring the practice and request your free airflow to be performed during your next hygiene visit.
