Moreton Dental Care  is open and look forward to seeing you again. 

To book an appointment, please give us a call.

We’ve been working hard to put extra safety measures in place to keep you safe and have created FAQs to help answer the key questions you may have.

You can find out more about the extra safety measures we have introduced and what to expect next time you visit us by taking a look at our COVID-19 safety charter and short video.

May we ask that you don’t visit your local practice in-person without a pre-arranged appointment first – it’s for everyone’s safety.

If you’re after some help and advice, we’ve created a series of guides on how to look after your oral health during COVID-19.

Take care and stay safe.

A message from Gabriela Pueyo, General Manager of Bupa Dental Care

It’s fair to say that the last few months haven’t been easy.  Lockdown life has seen many of us juggling work, home schooling the kids, looking after vulnerable relatives (from a safe distance of course), worrying about the health of those closest to us, and generally adapting to a different way of life.  

It’s all had a bearing on our mental health and physical wellbeing, but as restrictions start to lift, it’s important to take time to look after yourself. 

 

Caring for your smiles, right across the UK

We’re pleased to say that most of our practices in England are open again for face-to-face care. At first, we do expect that there will be many patients eager to come back and see us right away, so we willll prioritise appointments based on patient need. Please bear with us if we can’t book you in as quickly as we normally would.

 

Keeping you safe when you visit us

We completely understand you may be more nervous about visiting the dentist than normal.

The truth is, your visit will be different.  There will be more safety measures in place and consequently, our practices will feel more ‘clinical’.  Our dentists, hygienists and nurses will be wearing more safety clothing and face wear, and our reception teams will be behind screens and wearing masks too.  

We’ll also ask you to use hand sanitiser and wear a face mask while in practice (these will be provided), but it’s only for everyone’s protection.  

You can find out more about the extra safety measures we have introduced and what to expect next time you visit us by taking a look at our COVID-19 safety charter and short video.

 

We hope to see you again soon

Please give us a call if you want to discuss your oral health, book an appointment or to simply get some more reassurance about the safety measures we have put in place – this is an unusual time for everyone and we’re here to put you at ease.

We also ask that you do not visit your local practice in-person without a pre-arranged appointment.  We could be treating a ‘vulnerable person’, so we need to make sure we don’t have too many people in the practice at the same time.  

When you do visit us, we ask that you follow a few simple steps – our teams will explain everything to you when you book, but please take a look at these before you arrive or take a look at our short video.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Cracking Christmas draw for Denplan patients.

Another benefit of being a member of Denplan is being entered into Moreton Dental Care's cracking Christmas Draw!

This year the prizes are a John Lewis hamper of Christmas goodies, a power toothbrush and a free scale and polish with one of our hygienists. Names will be drawn out of the hat on December 16th.

But Denplan is not just for Christmas! The year-round benefit of Denplan Essentials is that it's an easy way of keeping up the great habit of regular check-ups with your dentist, so you'll always get expert advice about keeping your teeth in great condition and avoid any surprises.

We are proud to be a Denplan-approved practice, and that we are able to offer the Denplan monthly payment plan with its emphasis on  preventive care.

All Smiles For The Under 12s

It's smiles all round at Wirral Schools FA after landing a new sponsorship deal for its latest team.

Moreton Dental Care has agreed to back the under 12s squad which has just played its first league match.

MDC's backing will go towards running costs for the young players who have been selected from teams across the borough.

The 17-strong team which trains at Bebington High School, will wear shirts bearing the practice logo.

The squad played its first match in the under 13s North West Trophy last night, coming back from 5-1 down to draw against Ellesmere Port School Boys.

MDC principal Dr Paul Sherrard agreed to the sponsorship deal because of the many benefits sport offers young people, particularly for their physical andmental wellbeing, and to support the local community.

Said Dr Sherrard:We're delighted to be sponsoring the boys and wish them the best of luck in their matches this season."

Another contributing factor was that midfielders Joe Collins and Ben Furlong are both regulars at Moreton Dental Care.

How to sparkle like Markle

Everyone will agree Meghan Markle has a gorgeous smile- so healthy and bright- but how did she achieve it? How can we ‘Sparkle With Markle’?

Dentists speculate as to whether she has had braces, veneers or some other cosmetic treatment, or whether she was born lucky with lovely straight teeth.

Two things we can be pretty sure about is that she’s had her teeth whitened and that she looks after her teeth very well indeed.

And for those reasons MDC felt there was never a better time to highlight the benefits of tooth whitening, and of Denplan.

The popularity of tooth whitening continues to soar- it’s in demand for that special occasion, such as a wedding, a special party, a holiday, or a job interview, or if you just want to boost the appearance of your teeth. Whiter teeth can brighten your smile, making you look younger and feel more confident.

Anyone booking in for tooth whitening at MDC from now until June 30th will have the chance to win a whitening top-up worth £56.  We will have a draw of names in early July.

Any Denplan patients visiting the hygienist this week will receive a wedding-themed goody bag, and all our current Denplan patients are being entered into our wedding-themed draw. Prizes include a luxury Owen Drew candle similar to the one he created as the Royal couple’s wedding gift, and a bottle of Nyetimber English sparkling wine from West Sussex which is being tipped as the tipple of choice for Saturday’s nuptials.

A Denplan care plan is an easy way to spread the cost of routine dental care. The main emphasis is on prevention, helping patients to keep their teeth in excellent condition and avoid any surprises. Patients signing up for our Denplan Essentials plan pay £14.55 a month which per year covers the cost of two private dental exams, two hygiene visits, all necessary x-rays and 20% of most other private treatment required, as well as preventive dental advice.

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.
