The guiding principles for our dental practice are based on warm, family-friendly service from a dedicated team of dental professionals and preventative measures to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.

What Makes Us Different?

We work hard to show off our expertise in dentistry. Our team of dental professionals offer various services in-house, so there are very few instances where our patients need a referral elsewhere. Our patients are often thrilled with their results, but it’s the patient experience that sets us apart from other dentists in the UK.

Our compassionate care focuses on our patients as people. It generates an experience for them that makes going to the dentist much more pleasant.

A Bright, Welcoming Atmosphere

At The Bay Dental, we treat our patients like family and friends. On arrival, you will be met by your care nurse, who acts like your concierge by looking after you and escorting you to the surgery while you are in the practice.

A Dental Hygienist Who Gets To Know You

We aim to give you the same dental nurse every visit so we can get to know your unique needs. Unlike other practices that rotate you between various dental nurses, we believe that the best care is provided by seeing the same professional who can get to know you and see your progress over time.

Familiarity and connection make us a different kind of dental practice, where you are always treated as an individual.

Family-Friendly Dentistry

We enjoy working with patients of all ages, including children. It’s important to instil good oral health habits early, and working with younger patients is an excellent way to help kids develop and maintain beautiful, confident smiles.

A Preventative Approach

Our preventive approach is integral to everything we do. At every routine dental appointment, you will have a 12-point dental health examination which checks all aspects of your teeth, gums and tongue health, including a mouth cancer screening.

At The Bay Dental, we believe that practising good habits can help both your oral health and overall well-being. Here are a few practices we recommend for all of our patients.

Practise Good Oral Hygiene with These Five Healthy Habits

As prevention is part of our approach to dentistry, here are five tips to help you achieve better oral hygiene at home.

1. Drink More Water

We all know that water is a must for a good diet and glowing skin, but there’s more to water than promoting healthy eating and hydration. Drinking water rinses away food particles and any lingering bacteria in your mouth. It won’t replace the need to brush or floss, but the zero sugar content makes it the best drink for teeth.

2. Floss is Boss

You’ve probably heard our hygienist say it a hundred times, but it is important to floss between your teeth.

Imagine if you only cleaned the front of your car each time you washed it. It is the same principle as when you clean your teeth. If you only brush the front of your teeth, you’re reaching less than 50 per cent of the tooth surfaces. Even the smallest gaps between teeth can trap food and harbour bacteria which causes decay.

3. Change That Brush

If you can’t remember the last time you changed your toothbrush, it’s probably about time! Bacteria builds up on bristles over time and splayed, or misshaped bristles will not be as effective. Avoid putting old germs back in your mouth, and get a new brush at least every three to four months. If you’ve had a cold or flu, get rid of your toothbrush straightaway.

4. Consume Five Servings of Fruits and Vegetables Daily

Cleaning your teeth is only part of taking care of your oral health. Fruits and vegetables, particularly greens and crunchy vegetables such as celery and carrots, are full of vitamins and minerals, including iron, vitamin C and vitamin D, which help maintain healthy teeth and bones. Hungry? Make creative snacks from these healthy foods as an alternative to sticky, sweet treats.

5. Your Teeth Aren’t Bottle Openers

Your teeth are really strong. In fact, the enamel is the strongest substance in the body, but it doesn’t mean that your teeth are unbreakable. Teeth help you chew food and speak – they were not made for chewing pencils, pens, or opening bottles which can cause irreparable damage to your teeth and jaw.

Although these five easy habits won’t keep your teeth healthy on their own, along with regular dental health examinations with us here at The Bay Dental and instructions on proper flossing and brushing techniques, you’ll be well on the way to healthy teeth and gums in no time!

Our Service Philosophy

At The Bay Dental, you aren’t just a number. We get to know you by name, and by giving you the same dental nurse as often as possible, we ensure that we accommodate your unique needs and special requests in any treatment plan.
