10 reasons to smile

National Smile Month is all about the importance of a healthy smile, but smiling is actually good for you.  Here are 10 reasons why you should flash your pearly whites more often:

 

1. It boosts your immune system

Smiling changes the chemistry in your body. Numerous medical studies have found smiling to lower heart rate, steady breathing and relax the body, which results in a stronger immune system.

 

2. It changes your mood

Psychologists have found if you grin for 60 seconds, no matter how fake or forced it feels, it releases serotonin which tricks the body into making you feel happy again.

 

3. It lowers your blood pressure

As you smile, endorphins go up and blood pressure comes down. Those who have monitored their blood pressure both before and after smiling show a measurable difference.

 

4. It gives you a natural high

Rethink saying thank you with chocolates. According to The British Dental Health Foundation, a loving smile can produce the same emotional response as eating 2,000 chocolate bars!

 

5. It melts hearts

Several studies have found that a long-onset smile (0.5s onset) is seen as more authentic and flirtatious, and is perceived as more attractive, trustworthy and less dominant.

 

6. You’ll be remembered

Flash those pearly whites in your next interview. If you are smiling, you are three times more likely to be remembered than a person who is displaying negative or neutral features.

 

7. Smile your way to success

People who smile are more likely to get a promotion. Numerous studies have found a smile plays an important part in the physical attractiveness stereotype. Furthermore, psychological research has shown that attractive people are perceived as more successful, intelligent, and friendly.

 

8. You’ll look younger

Smiling is a natural facelift! It plumps up the cells in your skin and gives you a radiant glow. In fact, a study conducted by Orbit Complete found that 69 per cent of people find women more attractive when they smile than when they are wearing makeup.

 

9. And live longer

When you are smiling, it’s difficult not to be positive. And a positive attitude has been shown to increase life expectancy. Researchers at Columbia University found happier people were less likely to develop heart problems.

 

10. A quote to smile about

“A smile costs nothing, but creates much. It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.” - Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People.

National dental award!

Principal dentist Paul Sherrard has won a prestigious national award for saving the life of a patient using dental implant treatment.

Judges of the Aesthetic Dentistry awards declared the testimonial given by Dr Sherrard's patient Flo Webb about her 'miraculous' experience as the most inspiring they had received.

They presented him with The Patients Choice award at a glittering ceremony in London on Friday after they heard Flo's account of how dental implants enabled her to eat again after months on a liquid diet.

Flo, 76,from Greasby, had been in a desperate state when she turned up at Moreton Dental Care.  She had shed three stone in weight, down to just five stone, because she could no longer eat properly and was beginning to think she was beyond help.

Her previous dentist had removed her teeth but had been unable to make a denture that fitted her correctly.  Doctors had threatened to put her on a drip because she was losing so much weight on the liquid diet.

Dr Sherrard solved her problem by securing a new lower arch of teeth with two implants, making them completely stable.

Said Flo: “I am absolutely overjoyed with the treatment. My whole life has been transformed by it.   That young dentist Paul Sherrard literally saved my life.   It is a miracle and I can never thank him enough. I can enjoy a Sunday roast again now, or go out for a meal.”

Staff at Moreton Dental Care threw a celebration tea party for Flo at the practice in Hoylake Road, Moreton, on Monday and presented her with flowers and a voucher for a meal for two at a local restaurant.

“I’m delighted with Paul’s success.  It’s thoroughly deserved.  The staff here feel like my family now,” added Flo who decided to try Moreton Dental Care after being recommended by a nurse friend who was concerned about her health.

Dr Sherrard said: “I’m delighted our team have been able to help Flo and have a such a big impact on her life.  She is a delightful patient and we are all always pleased to see her.

“We’re all thrilled to win a national award- It’s all down to having a great team of staff to work with.”

The Aesthetic Dentistry Awards are run by FMC, the award-winning dental publishing and communications company, and one of the UK’s foremost post-graduate education providers for dental professionals.

Congratulations to Paul Sherrard, principal dentist at Moreton Dental Care, for reaching the final shortlist in a national dentistry competition.

Dr Sherrard has made it to the finals of the Aesthetic Dentistry Awards 2016.

His entries were among hundreds submitted by dentists from all over the country in a bid to win a prestigious prize.

Dr Sherrard has been shortlisted in the two categories he entered- both are for cases involving dental implants.

Competition organisers the dental publishing company FMC said: "Yet again the standard of this year's entries has been outstanding so to make it to this point is a major achievement in itself."

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London in mid March.

Said Dr Sherrard: "I'm delighted to have got so far in the competition.  None of it would have been possible without the support of the wonderful team working with me at Moreton Dental Care."

Forward planning to improve your smile

A smile is worth a thousand words, so the saying goes.  It’s certainly more than just a contraction of muscles in your face!

Scientists have proved that smiling is also good for you. A smile can reduce stress and increase positive emotions which benefits physical and mental health.

We all know a person with a smile appears more confident, happier and relaxed, and sends out a more positive message to people they meet. 

A smile usually involves showing your teeth, but if you’re not happy with the state of your teeth a trip to the dentist could really help to change that. 

If you have a big event coming up but don’t feel happy about smiling at the camera, think about booking in for an appointment sooner rather than later.

We are frequently working to deadlines, but your new smile needs to last a lot longer than the big occasion so we don’t want to take short cuts with your treatment.

We’ve put together a timeline to give an idea of how long is required for a variety of treatments.  Why not contact our reception staff for more details and to book a consultation.  Phone on 0151 677 2917, or drop in to the practice to meet us.

Our experienced dental team are helping to create beautiful smiles for our patients every day, and we get great results, even described as life-changing by many.  Just have a look at reviews written by patients on our Facebook page!

Christmas Wishes

The Moreton Dental Care team would like to wish all our patients a very happy Christmas, and give an update on all the babies that have arrived this year.

This time last year six members of staff were due to be on maternity leave at the same time, which did happen.

Now all six babies- three girls and three boys- have been safely delivered and are looking forward to spending Christmas with their families.

Three of the mums, hygienist Stephanie Farrell and dental nurses Kerry Baily and Jennie Thorpe, are now back at work, while the remaining three, dental nurses Suzanne Roberts, Beckie Warren and Gemma Barnes, are expected to return in the New Year.

We managed to get all of them in together for a festive snap. From left to right: Gemma with Katie, Stephanie with Henry, Kerry with Oliver, Jennie with Evie, Suzanne with Rosie, and Beckie with Joey.

Principal dentist Dr Paul Sherrard says it has been a particularly memorable year for him. He added: “This is my 25th year running the practice, which is a milestone for me, but having six staff off at the same time is something I won’t forget either. Over the years I’ve had a few maternity leaves overlapping, but never anywhere near as many as this.”

He praised the rest of the staff for their hard work and flexibility to keep the practice running smoothly throughout the year, despite the staff shortage.  “Everyone has worked exceptionally hard for which I am extremely grateful. We particularly had to plan very carefully when people took their holidays in the summer. Now we’re all thrilled to see the new babies- they are gorgeous,” added Dr Sherrard.

Spare a thought for your teeth over the festive season.

Eat, drink, be merry and follow these top tips to help keep your mouth healthy this Christmas and all year round:

 

1. Brush before breakfast - You've got up at a ridiculous hour to squeeze the turkey into you oven. The children are still asleep so it's the perfect time to brush your teeth without interruption. Brushing before breakfast means that they teeth have not been exposed to any sugar or acid attacks and will help protect you for the day ahead.

 

2. Drink through a straw - Many of us are partial to a drink at Christmas, sugary or alcoholic drinks though can be extremely harmful to our teeth; causing tooth decay and erosion. Drinking through a straw can help bypass the teeth and you still get to enjoy your favourite festive tipple.

 

3. Chew sugar-free gum - After eating or drinking anything acidic it can take an hour for your mouth to return to its natural state. Chewing sugar-free gum encourages saliva production which helps this happen quicker, reducing acid attack on our teeth. It also means you have fresh breath when you get caught under the mistletoe for that cheeky kiss.

 

4. Wait an hour to brush - You have finished your ambitious sized Christmas dinner the Queen has appeared on your TV and you have fallen into a ‘food coma'. This is the perfect time to give your mouth a break. Brushing your teeth within an hour can brush away tiny particles of enamel, leading to eventual dental erosion. So wait until you wake up to give your teeth a brush and then get on with the celebrations.

 

5. Don't rinse, spit! - After you have brushed your teeth rinsing your mouth out with water can rinse away the protective fluoride from your toothpaste. Don't rinse, just spit to make sure you get the full benefit and bring a smile to your face this Christmas.

 

And a tip from Denplan: although a soft drink might seem like a healthier, non-alcoholic option this Christmas, many are highly acidic, or loaded with decay-causing sugar.  Why not try a refreshing iced water flavoured with slices of fresh cucumber and mint leaves for a tooth-friendly alternative.

 

Ho Ho Ho- snap up a whiter smile for the festive season!

Get your teeth looking lighter and whiter in just a few weeks with our special offer launched today.

Moreton Dental Care is offering the Boutique Whitening system for just £230- a saving of £100- from now until the end of January.

Dental implant event at Moreton Dental Care

Moreton Dental Care staff were delighted to welcome eminent implant dentist Dr Steve Byfield to spend the day with the team and take part in an evening event for referring dental practices.

Dr Byfield became friends with practice principal Dr Paul Sherrard after they met at an awards presentation at the Royal College of Surgeons, London, ten years ago.

The Yorkshire-based dental surgeon is highly regarded among dentists nationally for his work in implantology and has more than 20 years’ experience of placing dental implants.

He has been a national board member of the Faculty of General Dental Practice, The Association of Dental Implantology and British Dental Health Foundation.

After spending the day working alongside Dr Sherrard at Moreton Dental Care sharing ideas and discussing cases, Dr Byfield gave a talk to staff from local dental practices who refer their implant patients to Dr Sherrard.

Dr Sherrard was delighted to welcome his visitor to Moreton.

He said: “Sincere thanks to my dear friend Steve for a fabulous day with my incredible team, and for a brilliant lecture to our referrers. He is my inspiration in implant dentistry.”

Dr Sherrard’s aim is to provide patients with high quality care and to build close working relationships with dental professionals.

Dr Sherrard was one of the first dentists to be awarded the highly-regarded Diploma in Implant Dentistry by the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

Dr Sherrard is pictured with Dr Byfield at the open evening.

Mouth Cancer Awareness month, November 2015

Staff at Moreton Dental Care are wearing their blue lips with pride this November in support of Mouth Cancer Action Month.

Staff have found if they all put on their blue lipstick at the same time, patients start to question why they are wearing it.

The answer is they are aiming to raise awareness of MOUTH CANCER- a disease which claims around 2,000 lives each year. Many of these could be prevented if the cancer is caught early enough.

The campaign organised by the British Dental Health Foundation, aims to increase public awareness of the risk factors, signs and symptoms, and to encourage everybody to visit their dentist regularly to help spot the disease early.

Dentists at Moreton Dental Care routinely check for mouth cancer at every general appointment. Early detection transforms survival rates from 50% to 90% which highlights the importance of the campaign.

The BDHF is hoping Mouth Cancer Action Month will send a clear message to the public with its campaign phrase “If in doubt get it checked out”.

Mouth cancer can strike in a number of places including the lips, tongue, gums and cheek. Three signs and symptoms not to ignore are:

.ulcers which do not heal in three weeks,

.red and white patches in the mouth,

.unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth or head and neck area.

Pictured are from the left: practice manager Lorraine Parker, administrator Vicky Lawton, practice manager Stacey Collins, and Claire Osmand (from Denplan).

Snap a winning smile in a selfie and a prize could be yours.

The great thing about a smile is it makes everyone much happier, so why not capture your smile in a selfie- it could be a winner!

An iPhone 6S and £2,000 of UK holiday park vouchers could be yours if you submit a selfie of your smile into a Denplan competition this month after a check-up with your Denplan dentist.

All the dentists at Moreton Dental Care are Denplan dentists, so take that selfie today and upload it via the website www.denplan.co.uk . Alternatively you can share it on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #doitforyourselfie.

We have got mobile phones and selfie sticks available at the practice should you wish to use them.

Research has shown 5.6 million selfies are taken on average each day by adults in the UK while 74% of adults worry about how their teeth look in photographs.

We at Moreton Dental Care are passionate about helping patients achieve a healthy smile they can be proud of.   We’re encouraging everyone, not only Denplan patients, to share their smile with the world.

Denplan is the UK’s leading dental payment plan provider- they’ve been helping the public budget for their private dental care for nearly 30 years. Its member dentists now provide care for around 1.7 million patients.

The Denplan plan we offer at Moreton Dental Care is called Denplan Essentials. For £13.55 a month patients get two private check-ups and two private hygiene visits per year, upto 2 x-rays and 20% off all private treatment, excluding implants and orthodontics.

Denplan membership also includes holiday insurance to cover the cost of emergency dental treatment while away from home either in the UK or abroad.

Staff gear up for our Healthy Living day next week

Dentist Tam Haque (pictured) is practising his press-ups ready for our Healthy Living Day on Tuesday (Oct 6th) when patients and non-patients will have the chance to have a physical work-out as well as a check-up- thanks to a unique initiative.

A team of health and fitness experts from Wirral Community NHS Trust's Livewell team will be visiting Moreton Dental Care to give tips and advice on a wide range of health issues, as well as offering health checks.

And staff from Upton-based Gravity Health and Fitness club will be setting up a mini gym at the practice for the morning to enable visitors to try out some exercise machines and to receive guidance on ways to improve fitness.

The aim of the event, the first of its kind to be held at a Wirral dental practice, is to promote a message of health and wellbeing to patients and the local community.

The Livewell team supports local people to make positive lifestyle changes. They run a broad range of free health and wellbeing courses and activities at venues throughout the Wirral from healthy cookery and relaxation classes to fitness and weight management programmes. Livewell also offers help to people wanting to quit smoking.

Trainers from Gravity will demonstrate fitness techniques on a range of equipment,  including rowing and cycling machines, and will be giving away free day passes to their gym on the day.

Principal dentist Dr Paul Sherrard says the event is a great opportunity to get a healthy lifestyle message across to the local community.

“We as dentists are in a unique position to discuss with patients diet and lifestyle issues that affect both teeth and the whole body. A good example is sugar which can not only damage your teeth but also lead to weight issues and diabetes,” he added.

Dr Sherrard, himself a one-time smoker, is proud of the success he has had in encouraging patients to quit the habit which can cause gum disease.

The Healthy Living event at Moreton Dental Care, Hoylake Road, will run from 9.30 to 12.30.

Young-at-heart Gordon delights in his new smile

Even at the age of 88 Gordon Mumford decided dentures were not for him.

When a bridge failed after 25 years he decided to take advantage of the latest dental technology- dental implants.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done with my money. The whole process has been absolutely wonderful, “ said the sprightly pensioner after having two dental implants fitted to secure a three-unit bridge.

Now Gordon is smiling from ear to ear, thanks to the new teeth which have restored his confidence.

He described the implant treatment as ‘painless’ from start to finish and praised staff for their support.

“Everyone here is lovely. I’m really looked after like one of the family,” said Gordon who has been a patient of the practice for 30 years.

 

Said Dr Sherrard: “It’s always a real joy to treat Gordon. He’s a true gentleman, always cheerful and very appreciative., and the staff all love him.”

Uganda 2015 update

Almost 1,000 patients received care from dentist Dr Paul Sherrard on his two-week charity trip to rural East Africa this summer.

He was with a medical team from the UK who joined up with Ugandan health workers to visit remote Ugandan villages where they provided health care for poverty-stricken subsistence farmers and their families.

The whole team were able to offer help to around 4,000 people who would not normally have access to medical or dental care but have a high treatment need.

Paul extracted hundreds of teeth to relieve the toothache of many Ugandans and also gave oral hygiene instruction to local schoolchildren.  The mission team handed out 1,800 toothbrushes after giving lessons in how to use a toothbrush most effectively.

The trip was organised by the Rock of Joy Trust which was established to support schools and communities in Uganda after initial visits from Heswall medics and churchgoers back in 2007.

Since then volunteers from the UK have returned annually to work towards their goals of establishing clean water supplies, building new schools, sponsoring teachers and attending to the medical needs of the community.  

The volunteers on this trip included 30 teenagers from Heswall Youth Fellowship, some of whom assisted the medics, while the rest ran fun clubs, sports sessions and lessons in the four Christian schools supported by the trust. The youngsters spent a year training and preparing before setting off for Uganda in July.

Paul says he was privileged to be part of the trip and felt humbled by the team spirit and sincere kindness shown by the Ugandan people he met.

The Big Summer Brush Up-helping kids to clean their teeth properly

"My children do not always brush their teeth thoroughly. They rush, tell me they've brushed when they haven't and some days they're simply not interested in caring for their teeth," said one mum surveyed by Denplan, and a statement many mums would agree with.

Denplan's Big Summer Brush Up campaign is full of useful tips on how to make brushing fun for kids and get them to learn good oral health habits at the same time.

We're going to pass on a few of these tips here on our blog.

Dentist tip: it's common for children to rush through their brushing which means some of the teeth surfaces get missed. To help, get your child to imagine dividing their mouth into four main sections and brush each section for 30 seconds.

This means they're more likely to brush all the back teeth, and each tooth surface.

If you think they've missed any teeth, follow up by brushing their teeth yourself after they've finished.

To help reach the back teeth, get your child to pretend to be a lion or a dinosaur and give you a big roar! This helps them to open their mouth wide for you!

Dentist tip: choose a fun toothbrush with their favourite character on.

Dentist tip: make their own toothbrush holder by decorating a cup with stickers or coloured paper.

Dentist tip: brush to a special song.

Dentist tip: fill in a brushing reward chart. (Download a six week brushing chart from www.denplan.co.uk/bigsummerbrushup).

Uganda  Charity Trip

These are some of the latest photographs sent by our principal dentist Dr Paul Sherrard from his charity trip to East Africa where he is spending two weeks helping meet a desperate need for dentistry.

He is treating hundreds of tooth ache sufferers, many of whom will have not seen a dentist before in their isolated communities in Uganda.

This week he is south of the equator near Masaka working with a team of British and local doctors and nurses, setting up temporary clinics in remote and impoverished villages

Dr Sherrard is extremely grateful for the huge support he has received from his patients at Moreton Dental Care and other well-wishers who donated more than £2,000 to help fund the trip which has been organised through the Parish of Heswall Churches.

It is the third time he has worked in Uganda. On each of the previous trips he extracted more than 1,000 teeth. The tooth-decay was so bad in some patients they were suffering from life-threatening infections.

A team of 27 teenagers from Heswall Youth Fellowship are also on the Uganda mission. They are spending time working in schools, running holiday clubs and offering support in the local communities, as well as helping to spread the message about good oral hygiene.

Said Dr Sherrard: “It’s a huge privilege to have the opportunity to take part in this mission, and I’m very touched by all the support I have received from so many people.”

The trip is organised by the Rock of Joy Trust which was established to support schools and communities in Uganda after initial visits from Heswall medics and churchgoers back in 2007.

Since then volunteers from the UK have been back annually to work towards their goals of establishing clean water supplies, building new schools, sponsoring teachers and attending to the medical needs of the community.

A new dimension at Moreton Dental Care

It’s all smiles at Moreton Dental Care today- not only is it the start of National Smile Month, but also the day the practice has moved into a new dimension!

We have just had the latest in X-ray technology installed- a dental cone beam CT scanner (CBCT) - which enables us to produce highly accurate 3-D images of patients’ jaws and teeth.

MDC is one of the first practices in the area to have its own CBCT scanner and is a big step forward because its scans will provide much more information than conventional 2-D X-rays usually taken in dental practices.

It is of particular benefit for patients considering dental implants or other special procedures such as root canal treatment, because it enables our dental team to assess the exact shape of the bone.

The new machine is causing great excitement among staff and the first patients to be scanned.   They are marvelling at the clarity of the images produced from one low dose scan.

Dental radiographer Emma Eccles who has been training MDC staff how to use the scanner today, said: “The 3-D image always completely wows the patient.”

Practice principal Paul Sherrard says he will find 3-D imaging invaluable when planning dental implant cases.  Previously patients whose jaw bones needed examining in 3-D have have had to travel to Liverpool for a CT scan. 

“The images are of fantastic quality and will be very helpful to diagnose difficult problems,’ said Dr Sherrard.

The images obtained by CT scanning will not only show the quality and quantity of a patient’s bone, but also most importantly the presence of anatomical structures that must be avoided.

 

Happy patients praise the service at Moreton Dental Care

We are delighted with the great feedback from patients about the service we provide at Moreton Dental Care.

A new survey which ran throughout April, revealed that 45% of patients would be ‘extremely likely’ to recommend the practice to friends and family, while 55% would be ‘likely' to recommend it.

One patient commented: “I would recommend Moreton Dental Care because I got an appointment so quickly and because of how nice the staff are.”

Another said: “ Dentist very good with myself and my children,” while another commented: “Friendly and helpful service always.”

This was the first survey conducted at MDC following the introduction of new NHS guidelines which state that NHS patients’  views must be monitored on a monthly basis.  The results will be displayed at the practice as well as being sent to NHS officials.

We also regularly run surveys for non-NHS patients.

“Our aim is to always provide the best service we can for patients, so it’s great to have such positive feedback from the first survey,” said principal dentist Dr Paul Sherrard.

Our team of dentists provide the full range of general dental services as well as more advanced treatments such as dental implants, orthodontics and root canal treatment.

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."
