The Magic of Dentistry

It's been 16 years since a stood with my fellow students at Birmingham Dental Hospital and celebrated qualifying as a dentist. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban had just been released and the Scissor Sisters were singing their way through the music charts (which were still important then!).

So much has changed in my job since then.I've been thinking about this whilst looking after my patients today. Less is definately more.

I'm removing less teeth. With advances in technology we are now able to save teeth in 2020 that I would have removed in 2004

Fillings are more gentle and less destructive. They require much less if any drilling and the materials we use now are stronger and more natural looking. A filling that would have taken 30 minutes in 2004 can take as little as 5 minutes of chair time now

At Chapel Street we constantly look to improve the way we provide services to our patients and this is more important now than ever before. We are currently combining multiple services into one site visit as well as providing more off site remote advice services.

This is limiting the overall time our patients spend in the dental chair and provides them with much better value for money.
