New Dentist, New Surgery Built, How We Design our Dental Surgeries

We have a new dentist joining our practice in Scarborough and currently we don’t have anywhere for him to treat patients. Luckily when we were building the practice back at the start of 2021 we added the services needed for a further dental surgery to be built if required. It now so happens that with Peter joining us sooner than expected that that we now need to go to the design phase and start planning the layout.

Here is how we design the surgeries, enjoy the video!

How we design our Dental Surgeries

Peter is excited to join us, especially as he is going to be using a brand new dental surgery. He was previously working as a dentist all the way down in Plymouth however he had previously been working in Scarborough as Dentist several years ago. He’s looking forward to the move back and cant wait to join our fantastic dental team that we have at Newby Dental Practice.

Its official, we are the only Denplan Excel accredited practice in Scarborough!

Our mission was simple when we started the dental practice……to build a beautiful dental practice in Scarborough which offered patients the highest level of dental care possible.

What is Denplan Excel?

Denplan Excel is a certification for dental practices to demonstrate high standards for patients care, quality assurance and good communication. Denplan Excel ensures we follow effective processes for complying with all regulations above and beyond what we need to. We value patient care and and strive to maintain high levels of standards throughout the dental practice.

Our Denplan assessor came to inspect us in April 2021, they spent the day with us monitoring our processes and procedures to ensure all was correct and in order. They reviewed documentation relating to the safe and effective running of the practice along with further detailed audits and reports. They took the time to speak staff members to ensure training and knowledge about the practice had been passed along to them too.

Who recognises the certification?

Recognised by the Oral Health Foundation, Denplan Excel is a clinical governance programme. It is also approved by the UKAS.

How we feel about gaining the accreditation

Achieving the Denplan Excel accreditation is no easy challenge and we are so proud of the team at Newby Dental Practice for working together to achieve such a goal. At the time of writing no other dental practice in the Scarborough area is accredited.

It is a prestigious accreditation based on quality assurance and demonstrates a commitment to all our patients. It’s great for us to have this but it’s even better for our patients!

Its Dental Implant Friday!

So what does Implant Friday mean?

dental implant Scarborough
placing a dental implant
Dentist in Scarborough

It simply means that today is a day that we’ve reserved exclusively for dental implants to be placed on a patient. It’s a complex procedure and requires many weeks of careful planning and organising. Todays dental implant case is the placement of two implants in the lower jaw, to be restored with a three tooth bridge.

What will be happening today for the dental implant patient?

There are four stages to placing a dental implant. Consultation, surgery (to place the implant, which replaces the root of the tooth), healing and then finally the crown (the part that replaces the tooth) fitting. Todays patient has been through the consultation period with our treatment co-ordinators before having detailed examinations, investigations and further consultations with our Implant dentist. All this makes sure that a dental implant is right for the patient. With this being completed, today’s time will be spent in surgery placing the implant. We use the Straumann system for implants which is the leading producer of dental implants, for more information on Straumann, click here

What is the next stage for this patient after today’s placing of the implant?

Once placed, a period of time will be needed for the healing process to occur (which is simply amazing how the human body heals around the dental implant, we’ll cover this in another post as its fairly detailed). Osseointegration must occur first. This is the process of the jawbone fusing with the titanium implant root. Titanium is the metal of choice when it comes to dental implants due to its natural properties which offer a high success rate with osseointegration.

After a period of time and subject to our dentist being happy with the healing around the placed implant the patient would move on the crown fitting stage. This is the most exciting part, in the background we have instructed one of the leading dental laboratories in the country to produce a bespoke fully customised crown. The crown is a one off and designed for only you. Due to this customisation of the crown it will comfortably and seamlessly into the gap left by the missing tooth. The crown will be colour matched to your existing teeth colour making it look natural and almost unrecognisable from the other teeth. With all this in place your beautiful new smile has just been created and ready to be enjoyed for years to come.

Fun Fact

Although we use titanium dental implants today to which it is still a relatively new concept, the practice of replacing missing teeth has actually been around for thousands of year. Archeologists have found that some ancient Chinese civilisations embedded carved bamboo pegs into their mouths as a replacement for missing teeth.

Wanting to know more about dental implants?

If you having missing teeth and would like to know more about the implants we can offer, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Or if you feel you’re not at that stage right now, and would like to read up a little, more our implant section has further information for you.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

We now have a safe place for your bikes

Since opening the practice, we have had a few patients ask for a safe area to lock up their push bikes whilst they are here for dental appointments. In fact, we never realised how many people cycle to the dentist! Scarborough is great place for cycling and we would like to encourage this to all where possible; especially when we have the Cinder Track right on our doorstep.

As a dynamic business, we have heard your requests and installed a secure bike rack to the left of our front door. This now provides a safe solution where you can safely lock your bike away whilst you visit the practice. To add further peace of mind, we also have CCTV throughout the carpark area which also covers the bike rack. So you can now relax in surgery, knowing that your bike is safe.

We remain open throughout the lockdown

As the providers of essential dental medical services, our door will remain open throughout this lockdown.

We will make sure all of our patients that need dental care and attention will receive it. All of our dental services will continue to be accessible. We have strict cross infection control procedures in place, enhanced PPE, and as such we are protecting both our staff and patients.

If you need a dentist in Scarborough, you know where we are, stay safe and we’ll see you soon.

Take a sneak peek at our surgeries minus the chairs (for now….)

Things are starting to look a lot more like a “new dental practice in Scarborough” now!

Despite a couple of set backs, with the current climate, the practice is looking great, we can’t wait for everyone to see it.

First picture is Surgery 1. This will be Emma Skipper’s surgery. Emma provides general dental care for her Denplan patients, but also has a specialist interest in oral surgery, dental implants, sedation and facial rejuvenation.

Surgery 2, what used to be a kitchen in the original cottage, is now a lovely bright and airy surgery. Surgery 2 will mainly be used by Helen Evans and Katie McCarthy, serving our Denplan patients. Helen has worked as a Dentist in Scarborough for sometime now, so we are lucky to have her on board!

Surgery 3 is our custom built Hygiene room. This surgery will be predominantly used by our fabulous hygienists Helen Gill and Amanda Watson. They specifically requested certain types of equipment for this room which we’ve gladly provided for them to be able to offer the very best standard of dental care.

The last update to our sneak peek is surgery 4. Surgery 4 has a few more cabinets to go up however it is coming along nicely. Catherine Hannigan will mainly use this surgery to run our emergency Scarborough dental clinic for those patients that require immediate treatment of dental problems.
