Dental implant patient praises 'quite exceptional treatment'.

Delighted patient Marie Stacey has described her new smile as  “little short of miraculous” and says she hasn’t stopped grinning since the completion of her dental implant treatment at the practice.

Marie, 69, a former assistant director of children’s services with Wirral Education Authority, was unstinting in her praise for “the amazing level of kindness, expertise and care” shown to her by Moreton Dental Care staff who have enabled her to smile again without feeling self-conscious. 

As part of Marie’s treatment Dr Paul Sherrard placed two dental implants to secure a three-unit bridge.

Marie described Dr Sherrard’s skills as “exceptional”. and added: “The level of professional care I have experienced here has been of a quality I have never had before.”

“I cannot remember a time since childhood when I haven’t felt self-conscious about my teeth. Not any longer.  They are worth every penny, and actually there is a real delight in no longer being anxious about photos.”

Marie recalled how as a post-war child and the 10th of 11 children there was little time to care for her teeth. “We all ate sweets like there was no tomorrow and dentists were regarded with terror,”she said.

“I have managed to smile without opening my mouth for years, but now I feel completely confident.  When I look at the photos of my original teeth these new teeth are little short of miraculous,” she added.

Said Dr Sherrard: “Marie has been a delight to treat, and we are all thrilled she is so pleased with the result.  We are also very grateful for her very kind words about our team. That means a great deal to us.”

Get a fresh new look for Spring

Spring is here at Moreton Dental Care,

We can help you regain your bright, youthful air!

Say farewell to frowns, lines and wrinkles...

Say hello to happy, youthful twinkles.

A particularly enthusiastic member of staff penned this ditty to promote our "Look Ten Years Younger" evening on Wednesday, April 15,

when dentist Lucy Benbow and hygienist Kirsty Kelly will make presentations about two increasing popular cosmetic treatments- facial rejuvenation and tooth-whitening.

Lucy decided to launch a facial rejuvenation service to meet demand. Some patients who had undergone cosmetic dental treatment wanted to complement their new smiles by reducing and softening facial lines and wrinkles.   Lucy provides free consultations to give patients the opportunity to fully discuss treatment options.

At Moreton Dental Care we use Evolution Bleaching-By Enlighten, a world leader in tooth-whitening which has already produced outstanding results for many people at our Wirral practice.

The key to Enlighten’s success lies in the specially designed Evolution 'super seal' trays. 

Enlighten is used by many of the world’s leading dentists and by more than 1,000 in the UK

Baby boom at Moreton Dental Care breaks record

A baby boom at Moreton Dental Care looks like setting a new record with one third of staff due off on maternity leave at the same time.

Six staff are expected to have given birth by the summer.

Three babies have already arrived- baby Henry was born to hygienist Stephanie Farrell in September, while baby Oliver was delivered to dental nurse Kerry Baily in October, followed by baby Evie to dental nurse Jennie Thorpe in December.

Three more dental nurses, Beckie Warren, Suzy Roberts and Gemma Barnes are all due in the next few months.

Congratulations to them all!

With five out of nine dental nurses booked to be off on maternity leave at the same time, it could create a staffing nightmare for principal dentist Dr Paul Sherrard- but he says he's taking it all in his stride.

Said Dr Sherrard: "This is obviously a challenging situation for an employer, but they are such lovely staff I'm delighted for them.  Having a family is such a special thing, and thanks to everyone being so flexible in the past we have always been able to offer part-time work to those wanting it on return from maternity leave.

" In the 25 years I've run the practice we have had staff overlapping on maternity leave a few times, but six at once it certainly a record."

Dentist's praise for Paul Sherrard's high quality work

 A dentist has highly praised the work of our principal dentist Paul Sherrard after taking over the care of a woman who had been a long-standing patient at Moreton Dental Care. 

The 50-year-old woman moved house recently and was unable to get to Moreton any more so Dr Sherrard referred her to a dentist close to her new home.

The dentist contacted Dr Sherrard after the patient’s first appointment and described her dental health as  “excellent”.

 

He also described the quality of crowns and a bridge which had been fitted by Dr Sherrard at least 20 years ago as ‘fantastic’.

 

The dentist told Mr Sherrard: “She speaks very highly and fondly of the care you provided for many years.

 

I took some bitewings (x-rays) recently and she is in perfect dental health, no treatment has been needed.

 

“The quality of her restorations is fantastic and I thought you would like to know. She has no caries or periodontal disease and excellent oral hygiene.

 

“She can't remember how old her crowns or fixed conventional bridge are but estimates 20 to 30 years. They are in excellent condition.”

 

Dr Sherrard said” I’m delighted to receive such praise from a colleague, and am particularly pleased that this lady was so happy with her

 

treatment. It also shows how having regular check-ups is the best way to keep your mouth healthy.”

 

The woman attended regularly for check-ups and hygiene appointments.
