If we’re honest most of us would admit to being a bit cowardly when it comes to going to the dentist, with just the thought of it being enough to set the teeth on edge. However, with Senova Dental Studios in Watford all that could be about to change, as it aims to offer a dental experience with a difference.
And sitting in the reception area of the centre in Beechen Grove the difference is already obvious, as rather than being filled with the usual amount of dread over what the next few minutes may hold in store, instead I’m happily singing along to the music from the radio playing softly in the background. This welcoming first impression is summed up perfectly by a fellow patient commenting on the centre’s ‘positive energy’.
Patients arriving tor their appointments can help themselves to fresh tea and coffee and browse through the daily newspapers or the latest issue of the celebrity magazines while they’re waiting. Beyond the reception area the facilities resemble a health spa rather than a dentist surgery, with everything imaginable on offer to put even the most nervous patients at their ease, including a relaxation suite and spa therapy room.
Shaped like a giant molar, the Senova Studios have nine surgery rooms which all feature rear delivery of equipment, so the patient sees nothing and can simply lie back and relax, even listening to their own choice of music or watching a DVD while dentistry is carried our. And it’s not just your teeth that Sen ova can look after, as the Studios offer a complete cosmetic experience, from simple teeth whitening and oral hygiene to mole and tattoo removal. Senova also offers a walk-in oral cancer screening service for just £20, a small price to pay for peace of mind.
Principle dentist Dr Jay Padayachy has been a familiar face in dental care in Watford since he joined the Leavesden Road practice back in 1998. The practice re-located the premises to its present Beechen Grove location two years ago in order to accommodate the complete range of specialisms. “Our clients come to us from all spectrums of life, from dinner ladies to multi millionaires, all recognising the importance of looking after their oral health, it’s never too late. We offer each client a full consultation to discuss their options and to help them make the decisions that are right for them,” says Jay, who is an accredited member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
