Centre for Dentistry Opens New Training Centre In Sheffield

Just up the road from the Hillsborough football ground, there is a new kind of dentist…

Centre for Dentistry, based in the Sainsbury’s at Sheffield Wadsley Bridge, offers convenient, affordable dental care. The team are experts with nervous patients, helping people to face the fear of the dentist as well as improve and maintain their oral health.

The Wadsley Bridge practice has become CFD’s Centre of Excellence – a training centre where all staff from Centre for Dentistry practices around the country will come and take part in our professional development scheme, known as GEMS.

The GEMS system has been custom created to ensure that all staff in the company are up to the highest of standards and also can choose to undergo extra specialist training. Developed by Amanda Hudson, Head of Nursing and Clinical Development and, Emma Haywood, Head of Compliance, it was a great opportunity for Centre for Dentistry to demonstrate how they invest in the staff that they have, and are committed to best practice.

This means that our patients are receiving the high standard of care that is expected from our practices. In future, treatments such as dental implants and orthodontics can be supported by Dental Nurses who are specifically trained in that area. Treatments such as teeth whitening can be done quicker, as trays can be made in the practice by specially trained nurses. This means that patients can spend less time in the dental practice and more time enjoying life and being confident about their smile.

The training centre won’t be impacting on the regular running of the practice, and we are still seeing and treating patients as usual. Staff at Wadsley Bridge are enthusiastic about being the core team for the Centre of Excellence and are already striving to reach those high standards expected from the GEMS.

Sheffield has always been connected to development in Dentistry, with the Charles Clifford Dental hospital opening in the 1950’s and the University of Sheffield being in the top 15 University’s in the country for Dentistry, we thought there was no better place to open our new training centre.

Centre for Dentistry Sheffield Wadsley Bridge is accepting new patients, open 6 days a week and offers a very affordable dental plan. Call 0114 317 7002 or email Sheffield-WB@centrefordentistry.com for more information.
