November Newsletter                 

Welcome to the November Newsletter of Berwick Smile Dental Care. Our second last newsletter of 2019?! How did that happen? This month has seen us reflect on 3 years ago when Indra travelled to Greece, providing humanitarian aid. A lot of change has happened since and Indra's blog shows us how life as a mum of 3, as well as practice owner, principal dentist. cosmetic dentist and facial aesthetic expert, requires massive commitment! Read on to find out what else has been happening at Berwick Smile. 

Patient Stories
Paula was referred to us from her current dentist for implant treatment. It was always a joy to see Paula return throughout her journey and we wish her the best of luck for the future!

Indra's Blog
About Registrations, Obligations and our Baby on Tour.
"While I listened to the newest advances and tips and tricks of the famous dental goeroes, Alison and my little boy went out and discovered London; from the Natural History museum to Kensington Palace and Hyde Park. They had a blast."

World Cancer Month
"Up to 90% of all mouth cancers are linked to lifestyle factors.
This means that with a few small changes, you can help cut your chances of developing mouth cancer.
If you do not stop or reduce the things that might put you at greater risk, it is important that you do self-checks at home and regularly visit your dentist. If any or most of these apply to you, it does not mean that you are certain to develop mouth cancer".
Have a read through the risk factors and see if you can make any lifestyle changes now.
Three year throwback!
In November 2016, our dentist Indra travelled to Thessaloniki to help and provide humanitarian aid in the refugee camps. A different and scarier place, but a very worth while cause and we are very proud of Indra being able to offer this to the Syrian Refugees.
