In memory of Dale Hudson
Charity plays a big part of our mission here at Hermitage Dental Practice, and we are always looking for ways for our team to be able to support great causes - especially when they're so close to our hearts.
On 10th June, we completed a walk to the top of Mam Tor in the Peak District in loving memory of our dear friend, Dale Hudson, and we hit our incredible fundraising target of £1,000 for the Brain Tumour Charity!
On Friday 27th October, the team attended a Halloween fundraising event for the Brain Tumour Research Charity, and we also went on to donate hampers for the charity event.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed, it means a lot.
Our incredible nurse, Helen
We are so proud of our fantastic Dental Nurse, Helen, who volunteered as part of the #BigHelpOut for the Coalville Belvoir Rotary Club on Monday 8th May! Helen helped by weeding the gardens around the café and litter-picking the area, despite the bad weather!
The High Sheriff of Leicestershire passed on a personal thank you from King Charles
III and Queen Camilla to all those volunteering.
On Sunday 29th September, Helen held a MacMillan coffee and cake morning! She raised an incredible £342.92. Helen organises this event every year, and we are so proud of her.
Giving back to the local community
At Hermitage Dental Practice, we care deeply about maintaining the community's oral health. So in response to the worsening dental crisis across the country, we were thrilled to offer free dental health checks Saturday 18th November.
The dental health check included:
Oral cancer screening
Tooth decay and gum health check with one of our experienced dentists
Oral health advice
Advice from our treatment coordinators about treatments, membership, and finance options
There was no catch and no charge! It was just our way of giving back to the local community and helping those who need it most.
We hope to offer more of these free checks in 2024 as we know the crucial impact they had. Watch this space!
Our Treatment Coordinator Hannah
Our Treatment Coordinator Hannah has been busy visiting local schools and nurseries this year to give the children vital oral hygiene and diet advice, this little one did a wonderful job practising her brushing.
Celebrating Christmas in style!
Our team Christmas party was held on Friday 1st December at Goosedale in Nottingham! Here's a wonderful picture of the team dressed to the nines for the evening.
Everyone had a fantastic evening, got into the festive spirit and let their hair down, which was extremely well-deserved after working so hard all year.
Here's to another year of our incredible team!
And last but by no means least...
