The re-launch night...Nothing but the best!
Patients and friends of Melton Mowbray's High Street Dental Care including Tigers Captain Martin Corry and the reigning Miss England, Laura Coleman, helped mark its re-launch on August 19th 2008 when principal dentist Stefan Kaczmarczyk held a celebratory open evening.
The practice, in a Grade II listed building, has had an extreme makeover resulting in a stylish new lay-out and colour scheme and the very latest technology. Patients and staff now benefit from a cutting edge environment which also prepares the practice for a new era in its development.
Dr Kaczmarczyk said in a short presentation: "No event is complete without its guests and no practice is complete without its patients. I am delighted to welcome you all here tonight." He explained that his vision for the future is to provide all the care his patients need under one roof. Dentistry was becoming ever more specialised, he said, and instead of referring his patients elsewhere, he wanted them to have all their treatment at High Street Dental Care.
To that end, he said, he had increased the capacity from six to eight surgeries, each with its own flat screen TV, he had created a central sterilisation room, a consultation room and improved facilities for the staff of more than 20.
After paying tribute to designer Gary Everitt who masterminded the décor, & thanking his team, led by Practice Manager Amanda Braithwaite, for their support throughout the renovation, he wished Laura Coleman success as she competes for the Miss World title and then invited Martin Corry to present a prize to the winner of the junior competition.
Louisa Day, aged 12, had rightly guessed there were 7 smiles in the new High Street Dental Care poster, all belonging to staff in the practice, and her winning entry was completed with the words "High-Tec" for her description of the new practice.
A dental practice has been in the same building on the High Street for more than 80 years and has treated generations of Melton families. It is now well placed to be caring for families well into the future for whom Dr Kaczmarczyk wants "nothing but the best".
He said afterwards: "The evening was a great success and a wonderful celebration for us all. Having Martin Corry and Laura Coleman as our special guests was a fitting way to launch a new era at High Street Dental Care and we wish them both the best in the year ahead."
