What is the saying? Behind every great man is a great woman. In this case it’s behind every great man is a great support team. Both my colleague and I have over 30 years experience between us when it comes to supporting patients. We like to make sure that our patients feel comfortable and relaxed right from their first consultation appointment right up until they finish treatment with us. We feel it’s important that they know they can contact us at any time and we are happy to answer any questions or queries before, during and after treatment. We work alongside the dental nurses who are experts in making patients feel at ease when having treatment and offer support throughout. This may involve explaining a treatment to a patient or holding their hand, but what they do is invaluable, not to mention how they have helped me settle in and answer my many questions. We all work together so well and this shows, which helps patients, feel relaxed and confident in our care.
