Portmore Rebrand’s....We are really excited to announce that Portmore is currently undergoing a rebrand, our new image and website will be launched in the coming months.
The management team have spent many hours working on the long-term strategy of the practice and the decision has been made to focus the skill set of our award -winning team to deliver complex multi-disciplinary dentistry. In addition to this, our aim is to become a teaching practice with a focus on team development and education.
Our ‘general’ dental services will still exist and our loyal patients will continue to be cared for in the same way and will simply become part of our exciting new journey.
We have been working closely with a national agency to help us create & communicate our new vision, a taster of which you can see below. There has been a lot of work behind the scenes over the last few months, and in the coming weeks we will continue to share developments, in particular, our gorgeous new website – watch this space!

Membership Plans for Children
Until now, we have provided routine care/examinations for children of registered parents, free of charge. As you can appreciate, we often spend as much time treating children as we do adults, and if the little ones are nervous, usually more time is required.
A such, we have created a monthly payment plan for children, at £10 per month the membership plan is designed to simply cover our costs and to reduce administration time parents spend when bringing children into the practice.
For just £10 a month, your child will benefit from 2 examinations and 2 hygiene visits each year, which is still a substantial reduction on our fees and great value for money.
In order for children to remain patients of the practice, at around late Summer/early Autumn, we will contact all parents to enrol their little ones onto the membership plan in order they receive continuity of care and great oral health.
Portmore Practice Development Programme
The second event in our prestigious development programme for local dentists was again held at The Oatlands Hotel in Weybridge last month. Our guest speaker was Tracy Stuart, whose passion is training dental teams to deliver great customer service for their patients.
We were joined by some wonderful dental teams from practice’s across the South East, all keen to learn how to enhance patient experience which was positive to see.
It was a hugely successful evening, great conversation and sharing of ideas. We are so proud that Portmore is the founder of this wonderful programme.

...Diamond Shine Polishing using Air AbrasionThe Diamond Shine professional polish is a great treatment designed to remove unsightly staining to create a whiter, glossier smile in as little as 15 minutes!
Our state of the art ‘Prophy-Mate’ system by EMS uses microcrystals in the form of a fine powder to remove tea/coffee and red wine stains quickly and effectively. The mixture of powder crystals & water are blasted onto the surface of your enamel (almost like micro-dermabrasion for teeth!) which removes stubborn, intrinsic staining with ease.
The EMS system is renowned to be the best on the market and the results are absolutely remarkable, not only removing stains, but making teeth look a lot whiter and brighter as well.
The stain removal is followed by a luxury polishing treatment in the form of ‘diamond polish’ which is applied in the same way as your regular polish, but which will leave a high diamond shine and teeth that look very youthful and ‘glossy’.
Some patients routinely book a Diamond Shine appointment as a stand -alone treatment as this is a superb treatment that can be used as an instant ‘pick me up’, say before a special event or holiday or just as part of your monthly maintenance. Diamond Shine can also be used in combination with your Regular Refresh hygiene appointment, if you have a particular problem area or have noticed some fine staining, you can request a Diamond Shine as an ‘add on’.
TEAM QUESTIONSWe think it’s important for you to get to know our wonderful team here at Portmore, and so every week we will post a guest blog from each team member, this week we we hear from Ramona, our Cosmetic Dental Nurse…
Dream Holiday Destination
My holiday dream destination would be the Canadian Rocky Mountains. They are filled with inspiring scenery which I can photograph. One of my favourite places in Canada is Banff which I have visited in the past and I really love it because of the wildlife and a multitude of recreational activities good for health and a lot of opportunities for winter sports or Summer hikes which I absolutely love.
I love breakfast
I love breakfast that consists of multi vitamins, preferably fruit smoothie like fresh berries, banana, kale, kiwi’s, pineapple and much more. I like having fresh fruit because of the health benefits and energy boost for the day!
Song of choice at Karaoke
It’s my life by Brian Adams, the lyrics are truly meaningful to me, you only get one life and therefore one should make the most of it.
The one food I couldn’t live without would be…
Thai food, my favourite Thai restaurant is based in the Algarve Portugal on the South coast where I tend to spend most of my holidays.
I really enjoy action packed movies and comedies. One of them I don’t get bored watching is Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, I found him entertaining and fun.
My Summer tipple of choice
Oh oh oh here we go! From all I could pick I really love Margarita’s purely because I love Tequilas.…it makes me sing my karaoke even better
If I won the lotto...
...hmmm...I would firstly go crazy!! Who wouldn’t? Then, I will invest some money in the Healthcare Service ideally retreats and the rest I would spend on my family and help some close friends. Properties, holidays, cosmetic treatments for my beautiful mum.
For the next few months I will be...
working on my personal skills and getting more out of my comfort zone. I really enjoy being part of such a wonderful team who gives me constant support and love, I couldn’t wish for anything better I’m truly happy!!
