Growing Smiles offers you lifestyle coaching to have a healthy mouth for life. It is a complementary therapy to visiting a dentist regularly. We will visit you and carry out a comprehensive risk assessment of lifestyle factors that can contribute to oral disease. We will help you develop a personal mouth care routine that will suit your lifestyle and improve your oral health.
We will show you how you can take action to improve your oral health and reduce the risk of poor dental health impacting on your general health.
What We Do
We offer bespoke personal risk assessment of oral disease by asking questions, discussing factors that contribute to poor oral health and offering solutions to help you improve your oral health and prevent future disease. We will work with you to create a preventive home care plan which suits your lifestyle and will support your wants and needs. We will give advice which is personal, practical and positive in the comfort of your own home and allow you to practise techniques which will improve your oral health and reduce future problems.
We do this by:
- Asking Questions
- Discussing risk factors and explaining how these impact on you personally
- Looking at your mouth using a little camera where you will be able to see what is going on
- Advising you (and your family if you wish) on what steps you can take to limit problems, have fresh breath and a healthy smile
- Demonstrating how to look after your teeth and gums using appropriate home care products which will be effective for your mouth
- Direct you to where you will be able to get further help
You will receive a mouth care plan and directions to improving your oral health. You will be able to purchase oral hygiene products recommended for you. We will also supply you with a copy of the risk assessment and mouth care plan to take to your dentist or help you find a suitable dental practitioner to fulfil your needs.
Growing Smiles IS NOT an alternative to visiting your dentist. This is a complementary therapy where time is spent focusing on improving your personal oral care in a friendly environment without the distractions of the dental surgery.
We offer group/family and individual sessions. Are you interested in a Growing Smiles happy huddle or a personal coaching session? Please use the Contact Us form to discuss your needs and get further information.
