Our aim is to give you the tools for you to provide your patients with practical advice to maintain their oral health between visits to your practice.
Our Lifetime of Smiles brochures guide patients through dental care and target each age group individually. The set comprises of four different booklets:
- Caring for your first teeth
- Oral health for teenagers
- Caring for adult teeth
- Tooth and gum care for the over 50’s

The brochures are an opportunity for you to extend your professional service- supporting patients after they have left your practice and communicating with them in the comfort of their own homes.
Smile Marketing are always looking out for new information about services offered by dentists and changes and advances in dentistry- keeping aware of what we may encounter via our clients is all part of our service!
On a recent foray into the Dental News section of a UK-based website, I found an article about progress in tooth-reattachment. I won’t pretend to understand the complexities of it (it is Friday!), but in summary:
the University of Illinois in Chicago have used stem cells from molars to form new ligament fibres and cementum- both of which are the basis of healthy tooth attachment
It never ceases to amaze me what the combination of dentists’ knowledge and technology can achieve. This makes our job even more rewarding, as we are able to share both established and newly-acquired skills held by practising dentists with potential and existing patients. After all of the hard work put into learning and updating the art of dentistry, opportunities to exercise them should be maximised!
