Over the past few months there have been a few changes in the practice, mainly staff changes. This is not something we’re used to, so we have found it quite difficult having to say goodbye to staff who have worked for us for many years, however, moving forward we hope that the staff we have and any new staff who come on board will work with us for many years to come.
Staff activity update:
Alison has been one of our longest standing Dental Nurses. She has decided to leave us to go to work at a practice in Montrose. Her last working day will be Tuesday 7th July. We are very sad to see Alison leave.
Sandra, our receptionist who previously worked as a Dental Nurse at another practice alongside our Principal Dentist (Richard) has gone back onto the GDC register as a Dental Nurse so will take over Alison’s role as of Monday 13th July, temporarily, until we hire another Dental Nurse.
Having Sandra work on both reception and in the surgeries means we have some flexibility for cover, and it is always great for someone to work on both sides of the business.
We have a new Hygienist, Kirsty Sim, starting with us on Thursday 9th July. Kirsty is registered as both a Hygienist and Dental Nurse. We look forward to having her on board.
Elaine, Richard’s Dental Nurse is pregnant so will be going off on maternity leave in November. We will hopefully by then have cover arranged. An update will follow closer to the time.
I work three days per week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, however, over the next few months you may see me covering reception.
Just a polite note from me to say that I understand that changes within our environment may have an effect on how you feel about our practice. I understand that patients like seeing the same clinicians/nurses/reception staff, etc. Please understand that it is not my intention to change staff on a regular basis. I hope you keep in mind that we are going through some changes and hopefully by the end of the year things will have settled down.
Please keep an eye on our facebook page as this is updated with news regularly.
Did you know that in order to keep your NHS dental registration at our practice you need to attend regularly? Many of our patients forget to make regular visits to see their dentist. And then, before they realise, it’s been [ …more ]
