Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and as such our longstanding receptionist, Lisa, has decided to end her employment with us and spend more time with her family. This certainly is well deserved. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all the hard work and care she has shown throughout the time she has been part of the Sync Addlestone family. Her friendly smile and demeanor were always a welcome sight to dentists, staff, and patients alike. We would like to wish her all the best on her future endeavors.

As many patients are exceptional attenders of hygiene visits annually, we would like to offer some insight into the pro’s of Ultra sonic cleaning vs hand scaling. Research has shown that ultrasonic scaling instruments are at least as effective as manual scalers at removing tartar from tooth surfaces, including from within gum pockets that are shallow. However, where ultrasonic instruments really shine is in the clearing of deposits from deeper pockets. The tips of these tools are small, allowing them to easily reach areas where manual tools have more trouble. Furthermore, the coolant sprayed by ultrasonic scalers adds to the dislodging of accumulated plaque and tartar. At the same time, ultrasonic scaling tools also introduce oxygen bubbles into these deeper pockets which disrupt the oxygen hating bacteria which thrive deep within.
As the world moves from post-covid, post lockdown, we are now facing even more financial hardships. This is something that affects us all as individuals as well as businesses in general. Inflation is above 5%, a CPI (Consumer Price Index) figure of 5.4%, as published in January 2022 by the Office for National Statistics. Energy prices have risen by over 50%. All of which have led to a large increase in running costs. This means that we will need to increase our fees, whilst always guaranteeing we remain competitive and taking our patients financial concerns into account.
