Christmas gifts for Blackpool children

It’s a tradition here at Ivory Dental Care for the staff to take part in Secret Santa each Christmas.? This year, we decided to put? the money towards Blackpool Councils scheme of buying Christmas gifts for those children in Blackpool that may not receive a gift this Christmas.

Thanks to all our staff, we were able to buy a trolley full of toys – from dolls houses to trucks to baby toys to scooters and LOTS more – all delivered to Progress House, so that lots of children will have something to open this Christmas morning.

Thank you everyone!

Implant Team offering training sessions

Steve Woodhouse and Georgina Ingham, one of our implant nurses, have been out and about across the Fylde Coast this month offering introductory training sessions to other dental surgeries about our implant services.

They’ve been promoting our implant services, explaining how the implants work and how surgeries that don’t offer implants, can refer their patients to us.

Feedback from the other surgeries has been great – well done to Steve & Georgina!
