Mike’s Philosophy of Care
It is Mike’s firmly held belief that everybody is entitled to a nice, attractive smile, irrespective of age.
Beauty is not only for the young, every decade has its dignity, every age is entitled to a nice smile, free of pain, nice and healthy!
The teeth and smile must be in harmony with the face.
Comfortable chewing aids digestion and is especially important as we grow older.
Recent research has demonstrated that there is a link between poor dental health and other disease states like coronary heart disease and diabetes, and Mike is particularly keen to help you establish healthy teeth and gums, and thus minimise the risk of other diseases.
