goodbye and hello

We are sorry to say ‘goodbye’ to dentist Sarah Ide who is retiring from clinical dentistry - she has been an excellent member of our team and we are sad to lose her and we wish her well for the future. However, we are very pleased to say ‘hello’ to dentist Daniel Ghent BDS MJDF RCS. Daniel is a finalist for the category 'best young Dentist' in the Dentistry Awards 2017. This recognises the highest levels of excellence in Dentistry in the UK. Sarah’s patients are being transferred to Daniel so we know that they will be in very good hands.

James completes Ironman Weymouth

In September 2017 James successfully completed the Ironman 70.3 (half-iron distance) Weymouth.
James says, ‘I had actually been planning to race in Vichy, France and then Ironman Barcelona (full distance) but was hampered by injury and some cracked ribs, so made a switch to Weymouth. Not my best performance with a difficult rough sea swim, but did enough on the day to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships September 2018 that is been hosted in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.’ Absolutely fantastic! .
