An occasional look at the roles of our Woking dental team
Most of our blogs have been either about general dental care or specific treatments that we offer. These will continue, but we thought that it might be interesting for our patients to have a look at some of the specific roles carried out by individual dentists at our clinic.
In today’s blog, we will take a look at the role of Dr Andrew Gough who has been with us since the late 1980’s.
He is therefore one of our longest standing dentists and many of our patients will be familiar with him and his approach.
Making it fun
Can dentistry be fun? Most patients would probably disagree, but Andrew believes that it can be so and prides himself on his work with both children and older patients who are anxious about receiving dental treatment. With care, patience and the ability to explain clinical procedures clearly, many patients of a nervous disposition now find that they can see the dentist, if not actually looking forward to it, at least then with greatly reduced anxiety levels.
Andrew takes special interest in providing smile makeovers for his patients. Each patient is assessed individually to determine what treatments they need. This can range from something relatively straightforward such as a teeth whitening procedure, to more extensive treatment like dental veneers. All procedures are discussed and of course no pressure is placed on them to have any particular cosmetic procedure.
In addition to smile makeovers, Andrew is fully trained to provide wrinkle-reduction and dermal fillers for patients who wish to help roll-back the signs of facial aging.
