I have just finished a very tiring weekend exhibiting at the Wedding Show at The Hop Farm, East Farleigh, Kent.
My business partner Russell Blanchard and I were delighted with the response we received from prospective brides and grooms looking to make sure that their wedding day smiles were going to be perfect. The day was certainly an eye opener in many ways, none more so than in the level of organisation that goes into a wedding these days. Most brides and mothers of the bride were tackling the day with military style precision, making sure that every aspect of the big day was covered.
It was also amazing to see the level of interest and awareness that the general public have about cosmetic dentistry. Of the hundred or so people who stopped to ask questions or enter our free draw almost all had a good idea of what work was available and what they would like to have done. As dentists we often feel that our message is not getting across or that people are not very interested in the health of their teeth, My view on that changed dramatically on Sunday when I saw first hand how a large section of the population is very keen, motivated and informed about how they can improve their smile.
To all the brides and grooms I met on Sunday, all the very best for your big days. For all of those who entered out prize draw, we will be contacting you all to let you know when the free cosmetic consultations will be and will be contacting the lucky winner of our free whitening treatment at the same time.
