Horses are synonymous with Gloucestershire – from Cheltenham Festival (not long over), Badminton Horse Trials (starts on 2 May), Beaufort Polo Club (Festival – 10-11 June), Cirencester Park Polo Club (Jerudong Park Trophy – 15 July) and the numerous riders who just keep and ride horses just for fun. The equestrian community think of their dental health when they receive a trauma injury (luckily not too many) or when they want to have a great smile for the numerous equestrian events in the calendar. But don’t forget how good oral health has a positive effect on your overall health and wellbeing. The links between gum disease and Type II diabetes and heart disease continue to be demonstrated. Our new hygienist, Karen is doing a great job in assisting our patients to look great but also live longer. At Tewkesbury Dental we are delighted to assist our patients to have a great smile when on, or watching horses! Hygiene appointments are available on Saturdays and Mondays and you don’t have to be a patient of the Practice.[iscmd_ytv]
