June 2014 - Shocking News!

We have bought an expensive piece of equipment for the practice which we hope we will never need to use!
The item is called an AED (automated external defibrillator). The machine can deliver a measured electric shock to the heart when someone is having a cardiac arrest (which is why we hope we never have to use it outside of a training session).
Sudden cardiac arrest occurs because the electrical rhythm that controls the heart is replaced by a chaotic disorganised electrical rhythm called ventricular fibrillation. The shock from the AED restores the heart's normal rhythm.
When someone goes into cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 10%. Being so close to the High Street means that we may even be able help with an emergency in our wider community.

April 2014 - Audit carried out on patient satisfaction

We carried out a patient satisfaction survey on 45 consecutive patients who had just finished their Social 6 braces treatment. The results were very reassuring and confirm that we are offering a high standard of care for our patients.
