for your 1st consultation

(3rd June 2020)

Just a brief update to try and keep you all informed as to where we are with regards opening.
We are currently working extremely hard to try and reopen within the next 2-3 weeks, however as you have probably heard, the news that we were allowed to reopen on the 8th June came as a shock to dentists who were planning for a phased and gradual reopening of general dental practice as previous guidance had suggested. Our current issues are sourcing the adequate PPE required for re-opening and putting into place all the enhanced protocols and procedures that will be required. New social distancing measures and even more stringent cross infection protocols will also mean that unfortunately in the initial phase of reopening we will only be able to offer a limited number of treatments and the amount of patients seen each day will be severely restricted.
However, if you have contacted the practice throughout Lockdown with an urgent problem you will be on our priority list to offer you an appointment as soon as we are able. We will be in touch as soon as we feel in a position to safely welcome our patients back. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things may have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your dental health and your safety.

Hope this finds you all well and we hope to see you very soon

Stay safe and as usual we thank you for all your support and patience

This is an article in the Press outlining the difficulties the dental profession is facing in trying to open.

Snore and peace

Sleepwell Couple Snoringl


Snoring is a common night time affliction. A recent study undertaken for Yougov1 found that 45% of people question admitted to snoring. According to the study it was age related, 22% of 18 to 24 year olds increasing to 55% in the over 60’s. It is also gender related  it is more common in men


Snoring and the more complex obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are common sleep disorders resulting from repetitive narrowing and collapsing of the upper airway. Obstructive sleep apnoea, or OSA, is a breathing problem that happens when you sleep. It can affect anyone – men, women or children.

When you’re asleep, your throat muscles relax. In some people, a narrower airway means they snore. But if your throat closes completely, you stop breathing for a time. For some people this happens throughout the night and it’s called OSA.

Untreated OSA is associated with multiple adverse health outcomes including systemic hyper-tension, coronary artery disease, stroke, atrial fibrillation, increased motor vehicle accidents, congestive heart failure, daytime sleepiness, decreased quality of life, and increased mortality.1 Snoring is also a significant social problem and contributes to decreased quality of life for bed partners through disrupted sleep.2 Snoring itself may have a negative health impact, such as increased risk for cardiovascular disease.3


In recent years, oral appliances (OAs) have become an increasingly common treatment for OSA and snoring. Although positive airway pressure (PAP) remains the most common and most efficacious treatment for sleep disordered breathing, OAs offer effective therapy for many patients with OSA. These devices offer advantages over PAP in that they do not require a source of electricity and are less cumbersome, especially with travel. Oral appliances are well tolerated in most patients, and therapeutic adherence may be better than CPAP.4

“The treatment has changed my Iife, I had high blood pressure and hypertension, but wearing Sleepwell has meant that I sleep better at night and have more energy and focus both personally and with my own business”. A. Gooseman 

"I have had a snoring problem for a very long time and have tried everything. I have actually tried CPAP and it never worked for me, but since I have used the SLEEPWELL ™ splint it has completely changed my life. It is amazing how a small customised mouthpiece like that can have so much effect on me. Having had such profound problems I am not sure that I can actually do without the splint, I just like it. The snoring was so bad I actually woke everybody up at home. Now they can barely hear me when I sleep". M. Adebayo 

"I have been married to my husband for 42 years now and have threatened divorce in the past due to his snoring!  We have tried everything, including an operation to reduce his snoring but nothing has worked - until he was fitted with Sleepwell. We are amazed by the difference it has made to our lives now that we both don’t get woken up by every night with his snoring”. Mrs Wood 

"I can honestly say the Sleepwell device is worth every penny!!! Thanks again Neil and team, best wishes for the future." Tim - Coventry

"My snoring has been replaced by deep breathing. I thought that it may be difficult to become accustomed to wearing the splint at night but this has turned out not to be the case. I found quite quickly that I stopped noticing it and the relief on my air passage has greatly improved the quality of my sleep". D. Lavis

"Whilst sat in my dentist waiting room, awaiting my impending pain, I read a poster from Solutions4Snoring - expressing how they could assist in my serial snoring problems. Liking what I saw I applied for a Sleepwell device. The process, taking a mould of my teeth, was quick and simple and within 10 days I had my Sleepwell device ready to use. The device took some getting use to at first, however now, I don't travel without it. I have owned a Sleepwell device for just over a year now and it has made such a huge change in my sleeping habits - I no longer feel tired and irritable in the mornings"
