Dental practices can be daunting places even for the most seasoned patients, writes Jon Boyle.
But MK Dental Spa in Kiln Farm is bucking the trend by giving patients something different to get their teeth into – a relaxing environment that feels far more like a spa than a practice.
Visitors to the Tilers Road-based private practice are met with a calm, cosy reception area with a cheerful face at the front desk, rather than a cramped waiting room.
And practice manager Lesley Cooley (pictured below) believes it is MK Dental Spa’s unique ethos that is helping it to thrive in Milton Keynes.
She said: “Our philosophy is to provide dental care of the highest standard in calm and relaxing surroundings.
“We’ve been here for six years and people seem to really appreciate how we do things. Everyone who comes into the building is valued and we are a popular choice for nervous patients because we take everything at their pace.
“There’s no rush to get you in and out. We take the time to listen to patients and understand what they need and want – building trust is important.
“My husband Steve, the Principal Dentist, puts the most anxious at ease; in fact the whole team is kind and caring too.”
The practice is equipped with the latest in cutting-edge dental technology and each patient is given a detailed treatment plan to suit their individual needs.
Lesley explained: “We do not subscribe to a ‘one size fits all’ mentality.
“Each treatment plan is bespoke so each patient knows what treatment they need in the next six weeks, six months and the next couple of years.
“This is the key to preventing dental problems in the long term.”
MK Dental Spa provides a full range of treatments including implants, crowns, bridges, tooth whitening and more. It offers sedation for nervous patients too.
In addition, it offers a Dental Care Plan and 0% finance for more extensive treatments. The practice is also open on Saturdays.
