Dentistry is always evolving meaning we can achieve results that just wouldn't have been possible just a couple of decades ago. However for many patients it seems the biggest challenge is still finding a dentist they can trust and building a good working relationship so that they feel comfortable to actually undergo the work.
So it is very exciting to find publications like the Exeter Living Magazine trying to help introduce residents in this area to a number of local dentists to try to break down the initial barriers many people feel. I was so pleased to be approached and asked if I wanted to be part of this issue which was published this week. This happens to be perfect timing for me seeing as I will be starting at the Pinhoe Dental Centre in just 2 weeks time so this allowed me a great opportunity to introduce myself and answer some questions about me, my attitudes towards dentistry and even my diet (I was very pleased to be able to squeeze in a reference to Jemma's banana bread).
You can view the whole magazine online by following the link below. The "Meet the Dentist" section is on pages 58-59
