Monthly Newsletter - April 2020

Dear Patients and Friends,

We hope you are well and safe. We want to remind you that we are still here for you during this time, through social media, website or telephone to advise you with your dental health issues, concerns and emergencies and through our newly launched virtual consulting service to have a face to face consultation with your dentist.

While we cannot see you at the practice, we would like to keep in touch and stay connected through different platforms and we look forward to welcoming you again to Infinityblu Dental Care and Implant Clinic soon.

Oral Health

ORAL HEALTH #101

The health of your mouth can have a big effect on your overall health and wellbeing. We have all been encouraged to try and stay fit and well to minimise any additional pressure on our front-line healthcare facilities.

During this period of social isolation, take some time to refresh your oral health habits and help make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. Remember:

  • Brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice daily, morning and evening. Spit out the excess and do not rinse with water afterwards.
  • Use interdental aids (Tepe brushes and floss) daily to clean between your teeth and any dental restorations.
  • Limit the consumption of sugary food and snacks
  • Limit the consumption of sugary and acidic drinksRinse your mouth with/sip water after eating to prevent plaque build up
  • Don’t scrub too hard on your gums as you may do them more harm than good!
  • If you use an electric toothbrush, hold at a 45-degree angle toward the gum line and move in a circular movement over the front, top and back of teeth

Dr Bruce A Duguid BDS MSc (Dent Sci)(Ortho)
Dental Surgeon, InfinityBlu

‘As a General dental practitioner I had no hesitation in putting myself forward to help out out in these unprecedented times. Having filled in the skills form supplied to me by NHS Tayside I was identified as having skills suitable for deployment as a Generic medical Clinician. I Had previously worked for NHS Tayside as an SHO in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I was then rapidly slotted in to have my FPP3 mask fitted. Once fitted into the mask you also have to go through a 32 point check to ensure it is effective. I have also today received training in filling in hospital documentation, monitoring deteriorating patients and also setting up drips and taking blood. I’m now good to go and await the call’.

7 Day Lockdown Challenge

The iblu team members have set themselves a lockdown challenge to stay active, busy, motivated and driven at these unprecedented times. The challenge is to pick something or a skill to learn that you have always wanted to do and have not found time to do it, turning the lockdown into an opportunity to achieve something new.

Week 1: Our dentist Chris is teaching himself how to slackline and walk 10 meters from one end of the tape. We are rooting he will make it what do you think seeing the video?
