Welcome to our Winter edition!
It’s hard to believe that we are in August and finals football is upon us!
David Liddle of Radiant Gardens has been busy in our garden and assures me that the bulbs that signify the middle of winter have appeared. Keep and eye out when you’re walking past because we’re expecting a sea of Spring colours by the end of September.
Over the last few months much of the activity at Mitcham Dental Clinic has been centred around our Hygiene department both professionally and personally.
Some of our Hygienists and Oral Therapists have been on maternity leave. Congratulations to Brooke and Megan on the birth of their baby boys. They along with the new fathers are doing well. We welcome Natalie Spadavecchia who has joined the Hygiene team.
We have been focusing on prevention of disease as a vision for our patients. We are always tweaking our protocols to aim for health. The body of research showing links between mouth health and overall body health, and more specifically linking gum health and heart health continues to grow.
Throughout this time we are all completing our continuing professional development which will include a number of in house seminars before the end of the year.
We have recently invested in a new dental chair and the latest Hygiene teeth polishing machine, one of the first in Melbourne (read more below!).
This all fits in well with Dental Health Week, which was held 6-12 August, with the theme “Watch your mouth”.
We have also just drawn the winner of our latest competition, an escape to the scenic Yarra Valley and have announced the fantastic prize for our next quarterly Referral Rewards Draw!
