Cone Beam CT Scanner Installed

Glumangate Dental Practice becomes the first practice in Chesterfield to make this big investment and offer this latest technology in x-ray imaging. A Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Scanner takes 3D images of the teeth and jaws. These can be viewed, rotated and manipulated on a computer, and therefore provide a much more detailed and comprehensive view when compared to traditional x-ray images which are only 2-dimensional.

Glumangate Dental Practice also now offers a referral service for dental practices in the region to send their patients to have these scans done.

First phase of refurbishment complete – new premises on the ground floor.

After nearly a year of work, the ground floor of the practice has been transformed; two new surgeries have been installed with the highest quality and to the best standards of cross infection control and patient safety, as well as a new reception and a disabled toilet with baby-changing facility.

In response to an overwhelming vote by patients in the questionnaire sent in April 2011, the new premises has been completed, allowing disabled access to the practice and finally relieving patients of the need to walk up the steep stairs to the old part of the practice.

Now that the move to the ground floor has been completed, plans are being finalised for the second phase of the refurbishment, which is to install a new two-room decontamination unit on the first floor (where reception used to be), which will bring the practice up to the highest standards of cross infection control, and exceed the Department of Health’s requirements.

Once the work is complete, the practice will have disabled access, and will not just meet the gold standards set by the Department of Health, but will exceed them.
