Dentist Direct Colchester Rebrand to Hello Dental

Dentist Direct Colchester has relaunched as Hello Dental, a new independent dentist in Colchester.

Its almost two and half years since I started the dental practice in Colchester. It has been a roller coaster ride and has been exciting a challenging in equal measure.

We have renamed the practice Hello Dental, to reflect our caring and welcoming ethos. We will now be an independent practice run by the caring local team that many of our patients have got to know. We are committed to creating an outstanding practice and to ensure we can deliver the high level of care we aspire to.

We have developed a reputation for the treatment of people who do not like the dentist. We will no longer be using the strap line “The Dentist for People who Don’t Like the Dentist”. However our passion for helping look after those who don’t like the dentist or are scared of the dentist is still very much a part of the practice’s core mission.

Like all other fields of medicine, research has greatly improved our understanding of how to prevent dental disease and make treatment more comfortable. Everything we do has been led by this research, and our goal is to restore teeth for the long term and prevent as much dental disease as possible.

As pioneers in bringing laser dentistry to North Essex and Suffolk, we have seen what a huge difference technology can make; dental lasers are simply a real win-win. Our patients see more comfortable, quicker procedures with fewer injections and numbness. We see better quicker healing, less recurrence of disease and overall better results for our patients.

As Hello Dental we will continue our commitment to provide the gentlest dental care possible, with the most advanced technology and preventive strategies. We look forward to serving you in the future!

"I first went to see Neel after he came highly recommended by a colleague, and I was looking for someone to fix some poor work I had previously done through the NHS. The fact that Neel is still my dentist after 5 years is a…"
