National Smile Month 2015

National Smile month is an annual event to raise awareness about dental issues in the general population. As dentists in Colchester, Hello Dental we are going to be doing our bit locally over the next four weeks.

More so then ever there is a need for increased awareness of dental disease, with tooth decay being the number one cause for children in the UK requiring hospitalisation and general anaesthetic for extractions. Not only does this cause a significant amount of distress to the children involved but the real tragedy of it is that most of this disease is preventable. A major population based impact can only be made by a sustained oral health promotion and prevention campaign, tied with affirmative action to tackle some food manufacturer’s unscrupulous practices that are putting profits before health.

Education and making some simple changes can mean most dental disease is preventable.

At Hello Dental Colchester we will be putting up a series of blog posts here with one simple aim… clear accessible information to help you prevent dental problems.

We will also be running some special offers for the month with an emphasis on prevention which we will be highlighting on our website here and our facebook page.

Until the end of May 2015 we are offering a saving of 35% on our hygienist appointment; Just £30 for 30 minutes*. You don’t have to be registered with us to see our hygienist. Call us on 01206 589 777 to book an appointment.

*terms and conditions apply; prepayment required at time of booking, subject to availability.

"6 months ago, I decided to try PRGF – Micro-needling combined with plasma on the recommendation of the practice to improve my skin. I have fair skin which is quite difficult, and sensitive, but also prone to breakouts and enlarged pores. I found the treatment…"


"I was referred to Hello Dental when my previous NHS dentist retired. I cannot express how delighted I am with the results and only regret not having come along sooner! From the start, it felt like a Rolls Royce service at Hello Dental, the practice…"

Sophie Davey

"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…"


"I have had a fear of the dentist my whole life. I recently had root canal treatment with Neel and can honestly say “it was a piece of cake”. He explained everything, was so patient with me and best of all, there was absolutely no…"
