“Thanks guys, I had a great time!”
…These are not the words I ever expected to say whilst leaving the Dentist?!
Last week I went was invited by Platinum Dentistry to their Belgravia practise to experience their new ‘Smile Design’ service. Now, if I’m completely honest, it’s been quite some time since my last dental check up and so I was
slightly apprehensive. I’m not scared of
the dentist but I did feel a bit anxious when booking the appointment.
Upon my arrival however those nerves were quickly settled.
As I said, I
went to Belgravia Dental Care in London Victoria, it’s part of Platinum
Dentistry which is a collection of 22 practises owned by Oasis Dental
Car, which offer a luxury dental care service… *winning*
So the real reason my nerves where settled and I ended up having a really fun time was down to two people in particular – Dr Fiona Stuart (my dentist) and Brogan (dental assistant.) When walking into the the room and sitting on the dentists chair the last thing I imagined was to be hugging them goodbye at the end of the appointment. Honestly both Fiona and Brogan just knew exactly how to put me at ease, at one point we wondered if someone had let laughing gas in the room because we just couldn’t stop laughing, they also offered music which of course I said yes to and then went onto a Girls Aloud sing-a-long because… why not?
Anyway the reason I was there was to have a Smile Design consultation. Smile Design was created specifically for people who want to improve their smile but aren’t exactly sure what treatments they require. I found the consultation super helpful and informative, myself and Dr Fiona sat down and went through all the little things I wanted to change in order to achieve my dream smile along with questions I had regarding my general dental health. We then moved on to a check up so Dr Fiona could get in and see exactly what was going on. I found it fascinating, at one point I had a tiny camera in my mouth whilst holding an Ipad so I got to see the back of my teeth and inside my mouth – something I’d never done before and that was really cool! During the appointment (which I have to point out wasn’t a quick pop in pop out, I was there for a good hour and a half) we had an in-depth discussion about exactly what I wanted and what Dr Fiona could offer. For me my top priorities were teeth whitening and potentially changing my silver fillings into white ones. She provided me with a menu of sorts which showed a variety of treatment options to help achieve my desired look along with a run down of everything we’d discussed during the appointment regarding dental and gum hygiene. We went on to talk about budget, one of the really great things about the Smile Design consultation is that the treatments recommended are on a tiered basis so it all depends on the patients budget and personal preferences – giving you more options, flexibility and control over the treatment plan. Towards the end of the consultation Dr Fiona provided me with a bespoke treatment plan in a presentation pack so I could go home and look through everything without being rushed into making a decision there and then.
So there we are, my first dental appointment in quite some time and honestly – it was amazing!
Not only did I meet some fabulous ladies but I also felt that everything Dr Fiona recommended and advised me on was both honest and detailed. The Smile Design is a bespoke service designed to improve your smile and give you the nasher’s you’ve always dreamed of on a budget that suits you. I really did have a great time and found the whole experience so beneficial! I would 100% without a doubt recommend it whether you’re in London or anywhere else across the UK.
