Party season is just around the corner and hopefully you’ll have a lot to smile about! The office Christmas party, Halloween, Bonfire night, and then all the nights out in between.

- Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day
- Avoiding staining habits like drinking lots of coffee and smoking
- Visiting Abbey Road Dental every six months or on a more regular basis for hygienist services
- Moderating the amount of sugary food and drinks you consume
- Visiting our St John’s Wood dentist if you feel you have any issues that need looking into before your next checkup
