This rather scary picture by artist Matthew Laznicka is taken from the cover of the most recent British Dental Journal. This dental magazine is running a series of covers depicting various instances where dentistry or teeth feature in literature.

This picture depicts Shakespeares historical play Richard the Third.

This play refers to the appearance of Richards teeth as a newborn as a portent for his future villainy.In the play, before he is killed by Richard, the saintly King Henry VI declares:

“Teeth hadst thou in thy head when thou wast born,to signify thou earnest to bite the world!”

At St Stephens Dental Practice we collect feedback from our patients after treatment. This takes the form of an online questionnaire which can be answered anonymously if required. Feedback is usually very positive but we were especially pleased to get the following from one of our recent patients.

” I feel at ease when entering the room at St Stephens Dental Practice, which should be normal when going to the dentist. Very friendly atmosphere and everyone is happy.They certainly look after their patients and you feel some form of connection with them as they remember your previous conversations or what sports you play and you can have a nice little conversation before the procedures start It really makes the procedure feel unique and personal to you, it feels as if they are not just going through the motions and showing that they care. Really happy with everything to do with St Stephens from the staff to the facilities. You can’t go wrong with coming here.”

Praise indeed.
