We recently attended the Westmorland Show, not a first visit for many of us, but our visit visit as both a practice and exhibitors! Here's what one of our Dental Hygienist's,Dawn Towart, made of it all!
Having recently moved to the area I was excited to be not only attending, but taking part in the Westmorland County Show with the team at Crossbank Dental. With a record attendance of over 35,000 I was not disappointed in the slightest.
As the good weather prevailed the crowds flocked in, it was a brilliant day to be smiling and looking our best as we chatted to the show's visitors from the off at 8:00am all the way through to the close at 5:30pm. Over 250 visitors entered our prize draw for a £200 Sonicare toothbrush and I was amazed just how many people still do not have a regular dentist or hygienist. Even more amazing was how many people do see a regular dentist but had questions they had always wanted to ask but never dared!
So information was in full flow, as were the goodies we handed out.
It was lovely to chat to people on a friendly open basis away from the clinical backdrop of a dental practice, which patients often feel intimidated by, imagining us all as monsters with 2 heads, only interested in teeth. It was all worthwhile to hear from the people who stopped to chat, that we actually are a friendly bunch and full of fun....not to dissimilar to the dancing sheep then?
