Sometimes it can be frustrating wearing braces, a little uncomfortable, lots of cleaning and not as stylish as you would like. However when you see the incredible result that lasts lifetime – it is all worth it.
In 2013 braces are more comfortable than ever and new braces such as ceramic, aligners and lingual are close to undetectable.
These celebrities have spent time getting the teeth they want – and I think you’ll agree the results are great.
We recently undertook a patient satisfaction survey at Park Orthodontics as we feel it’s important to listen to our patients and strive to make their experience at our practice as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. So the results are in, see below.
Based on 200 patients:
98% get a warm welcome at reception
93% are seen within 10 minutes of their appointment time
96% like the new waiting room
96% overall satisfaction
27% feel it is difficult to contact the practice sometimes
Obviously the last result isn’t so pleasing but we take all feedback onboard and feel it’s important to share all the results, not only the positive ones. As a result of this low score we are making some changes. We are a extremely busy practice but we are always trying to be as accessible as possible. We’ve updated web/e-mail/Facebook/Twitter to give more contact options and we’re looking into a new phone system, with better ‘hold/answer’ options.
It’s hugely important to us that our patients are happy and we take this feedback seriously, so thank you to all the patients who took part in our survey, we appreciate it and are working on improving all of our satisfaction scores.
Yorkhill Children’s Foundation provides enhanced medical equipment and resources which benefit sick children and babies who are treated at Yorkhill Hospital and within NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. These can include innovative medical equipment, improvements in child and family facilities and paediatric research and training.
At Park Orthodontics we’re donating all profits from the sale of toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash and mouthguards to Yorkhill. So every time you buy any of those products from us you are helping the sick children at Yorkhill, keep it in mind next time you are low on mouthwash!
We recently have trained in a new technique in order to remain at the cutting edge of orthodontic treatments, the Damon System.
Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
Available from skilled orthodontists, Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
We are delighted to be having our waiting room being renovated. We are going for a clean, fresh feel. We want our patients to feel feel at ease before their appointment, so we are offering free wifi, great magazines and a relaxing space to wait in.
We’ll also be adding some top of the line screens so that relevant information can be relayed to the patients whilst they wait.
