It has been an exciting year at the practice and since fully re-opening in June 2020 after the initial lockdown, we have been extremely busy.  The practice has been providing a full dental service whilst complying with the highest standards of cross infection control.  We are lucky to have three well ventilated waiting rooms so that our patients can socially distance themselves.  Our dental hygienists are always in demand and to improve access for our patients we recently completed our refurbishment, by installing surgery 5, a dedicated hygienist surgery.  This has allowed us to increase our number of  hygienist appointments with two hygienists working both on a Monday and Friday and one hygienist for the rest of the week.

Oonagh joined our team in 2019 and is our invisalign provider, the most popular clear brace system available.  Roland joined our team at a similar time and visits us each month to treat the more complicated root canal treatments.  He has previously worked at a root canal referral practice in Manchester and has his own successful practice in Sheffield.
Rob recently rejoined Rawdon after buying his own Practice. Rob provides our dental implant service.

The practice has seen an influx of new patients and in January Chris joined our team as another associate dentist helping to treat these patients.

We have continued our investment in the Practice this year and recently bought two digital scanners. For patients this means we rarely take dental impressions and instead 3D images of the teeth are emailed to our dedicated dental laboratories across the country. For the dentist this provides consistently accurate and high quality laboratory work such as crowns, bridges and whitening trays. Often the crowns are milled and the whitening trays digitally printed to help ensure they fit perfectly.

We would like to welcome Sarah back who has rejoined our reception team after a years maternity and say good bye to Issy who left us just before Christmas on maternity. We wish her well.

Extension Finshed

Posted on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

We are happy to announce that our extension is now complete and we are very pleased with the result.

There is now a new more spacious downstairs waiting room which will allow more privacy for patients at the reception.

The new downstairs surgery is being used by the hygienists to allow easier access for all patients who may previously have struggled with the stairs.

We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you will enjoy the newly extended practice.


Practice News Letter June 2019

Patient newsletter June 2019

Our new extension is taking shape and will provide 2 new downstairs surgeries and a waiting area alongside our new staffroom and patient toilet. Our hygienist will move downstairs for easier patient access.
We expect our building work to be completed by autumn, unfortunately the project has been delayed by the very wet weather.
The additional surgeries will help us deliver new and specialist treatments to our patients with an in-house endodontist, a specialist in root canal treatment. This dentist will take referrals from other local practices.
In the near future we are also hoping to introduce Invisalign the market leader in invisible/clear braces to straighten teeth. This innovative system uses cutting edge technology to transform your smile. Thanks to the unique 3D technology used throughout the process, Invisalign allows for highly predictable and precise results and treatment times are often greatly reduced.
Rawdon Dental Practice has been accepted as a local recycling point for used dental products. Toothpaste tubes, floss containers and tooth brush packaging can all be brought into the practice for recycling. You do not have to be a patient of the Practice to use this service, so please let your family and friends know.
There is still time to take advantage of our summer whitening offer only £249. Please ask our reception team for more information.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your patience in completing your medical histories on our Clinipads. This enables us to keep your details up to date and safe within your dental records. Once completed we will just require you to update any changes every 6 months.


New staff and the start of our new extension!!

Posted on Thursday, March 28th, 2019

There have been some exciting changes to our team in the past few weeks. We would like to congratulate Vicky one of our hygieinst on the birth of baby number 3. Vicky is currently on maternity leave and will be rejoining the team in January.
Lindsay and Rachel will be leaving us in the next few weeks as they too are both expecting babies! We wish them both well.

Building work has started for our extension with a planned completion date in July.
John, one of our dentists, will be increasing his availability at Rawdon and reducing his teaching commitment at Leeds Dental Institute.

Finally, Andrea joined our team earlier in the month as our Practice Manager. Andrea has been involved in dentistry for over 30 years as both a dental nurse and practice manager.
Penny and Simon have been fortunate to work with Andrea earlier in their careers and know that she will be a great asset to the practice.

Sad Goodbyes

Posted on Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

This month we will be saying goodbye to Janet one of our reception team.  Janet is retiring after more than 10 loyal years at the practice.  She is hoping to spend more time tending to her beautiful garden and allotment.  Denise, who also worked in reception, is leaving to pursue a career as a driving instructor.

We wish them both well in the future.

We are fortunate to have recruited two lovely new receptionists.  Debbie, who is a receptionist and qualified dental nurse, as well as Sarah, who is an experienced dental receptionist.  Debbie and Sarah will be working alongside Lynn and Rachel who continue to provide a friendly and efficient service to our patients.
