Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

Vol­un­teers are needed to help at a fundrais­ing day for an an­i­mal char­ity in Heaton Park.

staff at Dogs trust Manch­ester are ask­ing dog-lovers to lend a help­ing hand at the char­ity’s sum­mer Fun Day.

The an­nual fundrais­ing event at­tracted around 6,000 vis­i­tors and their four-legged friends to Heaton Park last year, rais­ing thou­sands to help care fot the dogs at the Den­ton-based char­ity.

louise Camp­bell, sup­porter re­la­tions of­fi­cer for Dogs trust Manch­ester and or­gan­iser of the event, said: “to have as many stalls as last year to help us raise as much money as pos­si­ble so we can look af­ter the hun­dreds of gor­geous dogs that find them­selves home­less ev­ery year, we really need vol­un­teers to run the stalls.

“We also need peo­ple to help out with our fun activities for dogs, in­clud­ing our Dog­gie Dash and temp­ta­tion Alley and, as it’s so busy we need peo­ple to be on hand to help vis­i­tors find their way around.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic day out and any dog-lover will en­joy it and get lots of lov­ing licks as a thank you for giv­ing us their time.”

The sum­mer Fun Day will take place on sun­day, July 2, from 11am to 4pm, at Heaton Park.

FOR more than 10 years, Den­tistry@442 has been pro­vid­ing high stan­dards of den­tal care for its lo­cal com­mu­nity in War­dle. Dr Sharon Walsh, the prin­ci­ple den­tist and owner of the prac­tice, has ded­i­cated her ca­reer to pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent stan­dards of care and ser­vices.

As a trained prac­ti­tioner in holis­tic den­tal care, hyp­nother­apy, home­opa­thy and heal­ing, Dr Walsh of­fers more than the tra­di­tional den­tal ex­pe­ri­ence by creat­ing a re­lax­ing environment and car­ing for the per­son as a whole.

Now, it’s ex­cit­ing times at the prac­tice thanks to Dr Walsh’s train­ing in pros­thetic den­tistry and her in­ter­est in cos­metic den­tures as an al­ter­na­tive to fixed restora­tions – such as den­tal im­plants, which can of­ten be too ex­pen­sive. Us­ing the world-renowned suc­tion tech­nique from Ja­pan’s Dr Abe, she pro­duces beau­ti­ful den­tures that look ex­cep­tional and fit per­fectly – giv­ing pa­tients a new outlook on life.

The prac­tice has also re­cently launched its den­tal health ini­tia­tive, which of­fers a free check-up to the lo­cal com­mu­nity to en­cour­age those with­out a reg­u­lar den­tist to think about their fam­ily’s den­tal health with­out wor­ry­ing about the cost. The highly qual­i­fied and ded­i­cated team of den­tal ther­a­pists, nurses, and sup­port staff will reach out to the com­mu­nity and lo­cal groups

Along­side its com­mu­nity work, Den­tistry@442 is a Den­ture Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence and re­fer­ral cen­tre for den­tal treat­ment. Its res­i­dent den­tist Dr Car­los Fer­nan­dez spe­cialises in restora­tive den­tal treat­ment and straight­en­ing teeth. Dr Car­los, as he’s lov­ingly known, is pas­sion­ate about his pro­fes­sion is loved for his re­laxed and car­ing man­ner.

Den­tistry@442 has a long his­tory of pro­vid­ing en­dodon­tic treat­ment and gen­eral den­tal care for the com­mu­nity. Now it’s proud to be adding to its spe­cial­ist ser­vices as a re­fer­ral cen­tre across the north west – cov­er­ing both the den­tal pro­fes­sion and self-re­fer­rals from the public.
