Kent Dentures working alongside AgeUK in Kent

Written by

Kent Dentures will be appearing at AgeUK day services near you over the coming months. We will be providing a brief presentation on denture care and will be available to answer some of your questions on dentures. During our presentation we talk about the best way to reduce infection risks through cleaning techniques as well as tips of reducing the chance of breaking your dentures when cleaning them. Some individuals have asked for our free consultation following the presentation, which we have organised at the day centre later on in the week. This has meant that people who find it difficult to get to appointments can still have the option of a high quality service but within a community setting and without the extra travel. Some have opted for us to visit them at their homes instead of using a private meeting room at the day centre, and we have been happy to organise this too.

We have been finding that there are a number of individuals who have not sort professional help for their dentures because they mistakenly believe that the process is too complicated or that it can't fit around their mobility needs. This has meant that some have struggled with poor fitting dentures unnecessarily, which has impacted on their dignity and health. If you know someone who would like to attend one of these presentations, someone who has questions or someone who would like a free consultation, then please speak with your local AgeUK day centre or call us on 01227 469813.
