Amanda and the Invisalign Buzz!

You may have already had the pleasure of meeting and talking to our lovely receptionist Amanda at our Waterlooville practice, you cannot miss her, she certainly brings added sparkle to our team and patients’ day.

Amanda has recently started her own Invisalign journey with us, provided by our amazing, Dr Usha Ramjas and we thought it would be great to share this with you all so you can hear first-hand how easily Invisalign fits into her life, and it is only the first week.

Even though Amanda has a very good understanding of Invisalign she was still a little apprehensive on embarking on this treatment, wondering if it would be uncomfortable, would it affect her speech and as she is front of house, would patients notice.

Despite Amanda’s apprehension she was also incredibly excited and believe me, we all knew this, team, patients, and visitors. I have called it the Invisalign Buzz! Patients have also been asking Amanda for her first-hand experience which has supported them throughout their own journey which is what we are all about.

As some of you may know the journey may be slightly different for each individual but for Amanda, her treatment will last approx. 32 weeks, such a short time to achieve a new smile.

After getting her first set of clear aligners fitted, they did feel a little odd and Amanda felt her speech was different, which is to be expected but she was amazed after her first day that it felt so normal and comfortable. Her speech also has gone back to normal already! After visiting her sister on her first weekend with her aligners, her sister did not even notice until Amanda had to point them out!

We will keep you all posted on her journey and do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to know more about Invisalign or any other dental treatment, we are always here for you at every step.

Have a great day all!

Warmest regards









New Year, New You?

It’s that time of year again, time for us to choose a new challenge to commit to for 365 days, be it starting something new or quitting an old habit.

Studies have found that around 50% of the country will make some form of resolution for the New Year with “losing weight” being the most popular choice. However, success rates are low, with around 88% of people not completing their goal.

To achieve success, studies have found that smaller is better and what is easier than popping in for an oral health screening? This is a quick and easy way of taking control of your health, the starting point of your overall health MOT.

A check up allows us to examine all the teeth and tissues of the mouth, checking for any underlying issues as well as perform an oral cancer screen and check that the muscles and joints are performing as they should be.

So let’s not be in that 88% that fail to meet their goal, and make this the year that you take control of your oral health – here’s to sparkling smiles in 2014!
