Fulham Road Dental partners with Durr Dental for dental equipment
Fulham Road Dental (“FRD”) has worked together with Durr Dental to open a new practice in Fulham, London in May 2021. During the first lockdown due to the COVID pandemic, Dr. George Cheetham, and a long-standing patient of his, Mark Brown, teamed up and build a high spec specialist practice covering all areas of dentistry. We wanted to provide not only general dentistry but support the local dental community and take referrals for their complex patient needs. FRD was set up as a boutique Fulham dental practice focussing on providing an exceptional patient experience through the combination of investment in:
- A warm contemporary high street practice.
- Technology designed to give patients a fully digital experience.
- A leading clinical team in the field of dentistry.
We wanted to provide our patient base with a unique dental experience and we came to the conclusion that we didn’t just need leading dental specialists, but the equipment and environment to support the treatments. In order to provide the level of patient care required by the practice, it was imperative that each of our three surgeries is equipped with industry-leading dental equipment.
Choosing dental equipment can be a bit of a minefield as there are so many options out there and varying prices. Fortunately, George had an existing relationship with Durr Dental through his co-ownership of Ridgway Dental in Wimbledon Village. “ I have had experience using the Durr Vistascan x-ray processors for a long time now – making the decision of what system to use at FRD much easier.”
George has been using the Vistascan Mini easy system at Ridgway for approximately 7 years now. “I have found the machines and x-ray films extremely reliable, the image quality is fantastic, and it’s such an easy system to link to your patient diary software. Not only is the hardware/software great but I have always found the company thoroughly professional and responsive to our needs.”
Recently George has started using the Durr intra-oral camera. The team has been very impressed with the outstanding quality of the photos. Previously George had used an SLR camera with a macro lens as he had not been able to access a high-quality intra-oral camera that was able to produce comparable quality photos to the SLR camera. He had also been frustrated by the reliability issues of certain intra-oral cameras. “Having an intra-oral camera of this quality really makes life easy for patient communication and record-keeping. The photos can link straight to your patient management software system saving a lot of time and hassle transferring photos around on your computer system.”
George has been extremely happy with the quality and customer service of Durr Dental. “I am very confident I will continue using Durr dental throughout my dental career, not only because their products reach the level of care my patients are accustomed to, but also for their professional service.”
Here at Fulham Road Dental, we would like to say a thank-you to Durr Dental for their help and support in equipping our new practice. We look forward to partnering with them going forward as we grow FRD but also open new practices in the future.
