Clive Efford attended the formal opening of the new practice on Dunvegan Road, and praised the innovative changes made. The building has housed a dental practice since 1971. Last July Dr Nasser Mushekhan took over and working closely with Greenwich Teaching Primary Care Trust has completed an extensive modernisation of the premises. The changes mean that the practice is now fully computerised along with an advanced digital X-Ray system, disabled friendly treatment rooms situated on the ground floor with disabled friendly treatment chair, longer opening hours (including Saturday mornings and late evenings) and family appointments available.
Clive praised the investment made by Dr Mushekhan in our local health services. He also praised the local PCT for working with dentists such as Dr Mushekhan to ensure that patients had access to NHS dentistry. Over 60 percent of Greenwich residents have NHS dental cover and over 80 percent of children – much higher than the London average. And there are still NHS vacancies in Greenwich dentists.
The staff aims to continue providing a comprehensive range of family dental care for all new and existing NHS and private patients.
