Spring 2000

Welcome to our new web site.

We really hope you find it both interesting and informative. The experience of setting one up has certainly been a challenge and your comments and feedback will be appreciated.

New or prospective patients will find information about the Maycroft dental team and what we can offer you with our services, treatment and advice. Our opening hours are shown with a map, to enable you to find us.

The rest of the web pages involve a section on understanding some of the more common dental problems with guidance as to how we may be able to help you with any of these. There are also links to other good sites for those who would like more information on a variety of dental fields. We have provided an e-mail link and believe that the ability to communicate with us directly will be of benefit to everyone.

Our intention is to keep this a changing and active site, we will write regular newsletters; both about the Practice, the staff and dental subjects of general interest.

We would be very pleased to receive suggestions of topics, which you feel you would like to learn more about. Although we may never be able to fill teeth through the Internet we will endeavour to make this a site worth visiting!

Putting teath on Television

Taken from the Woking News & Mail

Thursday October 21st 1999

MOST children are fascinated with the television, so what better way to help them relax at the dentist than by putting their teeth on TV? "The children think its wonderful," said Richard Browne, who with his wife Jennifer owns Maycroft Dental Care Centre.

They have invested £6,000 in the inta-oral camera which operates via radio signals. Richard explained that the Sony camera, which is shaped like a pen is inserted into the patient‘s mouth and then the image is shown on a television screen in the surgery.

The couple have also created a children‘s play area decorated with an undersea mural by Ronald Willcox, who is one of the Brownes‘ patients.

Richard explained that all this is part of the surgery‘s ethos of "making your visits here a pleasant experience."

He added: "We want everyone, children especially, to not be scared of going to the dentist and to realise that their visit should be for prevention with as little treatment as possible."
