Is Slow really better than Fast?

In this world there is a struggle to be better, faster, stronger, bigger……..etc.  And while people are trying their hardest to save time in this “instant coffee” world, why do we at Enamel, believe that Slow Dentistry ® is the way forward?

What is Slow Dentistry®?

Slow Dentistry® is a brand started in 2016 in Switzerland.  The idea behind the brand is to keep practices accountable to ethical and clinical standards.  In a nutshell, they want you to know that you are in safe hands when you see a dentist that is part of the Slow Dentistry® network.  Slow is there to increase patient safety and comfort and allow the patient to take control of their dental appointments.

Slow is not just about speed……

Yes, practicing Slow Dentistry® does involve a time frame, but it is so much more than that!  It means that we strive to have thorough infection control practices. Slow also means that we are using the most reliable materials and using them in the correct manner.  Slow Practitioners also strive for the best clinical practices in each treatment.

Why Choose a Slow Dentistry ® practice?

You won’t just appreciate the attention to detail in each of your treatments.  As a patient, you will be comforted in the knowledge that we are doing our best to give you the best (and latest) treatment modalities with the best products choices.  So you can also be happy in the knowledge that all our instruments are sterilised to top standards and our treatments are ethically backed.  We love Rubber Dam and believe that informed consent is crucial to any treatment we perform.

All Dental Practices should be striving for these ideals in their treatment practices.

Enamel Dentistry is a Global Slow Ambassador.

Dr Mark Bowes is an honorary Slow Ambassador and Enamel was invited to be South Africa’s first Slow Dentistry Clinic. This means that the Enamel Dentistry clinic has been recognized has having top standards and conforms to all of the Slow ideals. That is why we feel you’d love visiting Enamel Dentistry for your treatment.

And What about your time…..?

I am sure that you will actually appreciate a little “time out” in the dental chair away from the maddening crowd.  So lie back, relax, and know your teeth are in very good hands………..
