Important update for our patients regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
As of 25th March 2020 our clinic has temporary closed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
During normal working hours, someone from our upper management will always be available to speak to. (9am-7pm Mon-Friday)
Outside of working hours, kindly email us on email@example.com or send us a text message/WhatsApp message on 07851183270. We will endeavour to reply to messages and emails 24 hours a day for all of our patients.
If you have an emergency please call for initial triage as we are only seeing emergency cases. Regretfully Walk ins can not be accommodated at this moment in time. No treatments will be carried out but we will be providing consultation, advice and guidance to support our patients.
The Government and the NHS are constantly updating the information on Covid-19 as the situation progresses. Please use the links below to keep up to date on the current guidelines.
We wish to thank all our patients for their understanding and co-operation at this time. Safe Safe.
As you know our world has somewhat changed in the past month. We are currently in a Pandemic with the government imposing a lockdown in order to flatten the curve of incidence of this infection.
School and non-essential places of work have closed. Dental practices have also had to close in order to prevent the spread of this infection.
A lot of our staff including Dentists and Specialists have been or will be redeployed to positions within the NHS in the near future as we move towards the peak in order to keep the NHS working.
With all the tragic things that are happening in the world as a result of the corona virus, now might seem like an unusual time to talk about being positive. Yet staying positive is vital in order to be able to successfully cope with the changes around us.
As a Dental practice we felt that it was the time for us to be proactive about creating small moments of happiness in our days as well as our patients and friends of our practice.
So this week we asked our Therapist Megan to share some tips about maintaining good oral hygiene.
We hope that you find it useful.

Megan’s Oral Hygiene Tips during Lockdown:
Brush with an electric toothbrush-Ensure bristles are angled towards your gums with part of the bristles on the area where the teeth meet the gums.
Ensure that the toothpaste that you are using contains Flouride.
During this Pandemic, if you have been unwell, change the toothbrush head as soon as you feel better, otherwise change the toothbrush head every 3 months.
Use floss or some type of inter dental cleaning appliance between your teeth, twice a day.
The more frequent intake of food as we are all at home currently will lead to more cavities developing. Try to stick to 5 meals a day-a breakfast, midmorning snack,lunch, mid afternoon snack and dinner. The grazing on foods, especially sweets cancontribute to dental decay.
I know this may sound silly but when I first started my business, a lot of self-criticism made it’s way into my world and I believed people didn’t want to work with me because of my smile, I used to be so nervous meeting a new client because of how ‘goofy’ my teeth were. That takes me back, ‘goofy’ was a reference I would answer to back in school days. I’d lived with this insecurity my whole life. If I knew the person I wanted to be, the business I wanted to run, I had to do one thing. GET MY TEETH DONE!”
I approached Dental On The Banks shortly after they opened and I was stunned. Not just at the beautiful appearance but how the price was really no different to the average dental practice in Bournemouth and Poole, yet at Dental On The Banks – you’re not waiting half an hour later than you’re appointment time and there aren’t any creeks when you walk to the waiting room.
The service at Dental On The Banks is, in its best description, having afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason. Let me talk this through. At the bottom we have the most perfectly homemade scones, still warm. You walk into DOTB and you’re greeted with the warmest smiles and service – your coffee is served quite literally but DOTB go a step further than Fortnum & Mason in this case and print your gorgeous face on the coffee. I know, crazy!
Let’s move up a level, those perfectly cut sandwiches – have you ever seen anything like it? I have. Dental On The Banks are pure perfectionists at what they do, they finely tune every tiny detail of your treatment, probably even details you didn’t notice yourself. Now we have the cutest little cakes, ok so you may have to cut out cake on your treatment plan; just kidding. With Invisalign you can remove your tray, eat, clean your teeth and pop your tray back in, nothing is coming between you and those cakes! Lastly, the endless sandwiches your waiter / waitress continuously comes around with, unlimited – THAT is the aftercare you get at Dental On The Banks. You aren’t a number, you are a name, a name that they remember and a name that they want to be in contact with and truly care about. Your teeth are like diamonds to DOTB.
That’s why I will never go to another dentist again. I‘ve met my match and you cannot begin to understand how amazing I feel when I smile now. No fear or self-criticism holding me back, your wellbeing is much more than you possibly think and it deserves more attention and investment than you possibly give it. Do not let anything hold you back from smiling and being your best version. After lockdown, please locate me at Fortnum & Mason showing off my Dental On The Banks smile.”
From my first meeting with Dr Damon and Dr Junaid, I knew that I was in the very best hands to have my dental treatment and the smile that I had dreamed about for a long time. It did not disappoint! The first class service, attention to detail and professionalism at DOTB was outstanding, so much so that my daughter is also about to embark upon her dental journey with the superb team
After having composite bonding on my front teeth at a different dentist abroad, I really wasn’t impressed by the results. I was so glad to discover Dental on the Banks and their work! They were able to completely re-do my composite bonding to get my teeth looking exactly as I had wanted them to! I went in disappointed with the look of my teeth and after just one appointment I was leaving with a smile I couldn’t wait to show off! With such a beautiful clinic and amazing and friendly team of staff, I now want to go here for anything to do with my teeth going forward. Thank you!
