    May 2015 - National Smile Month

    Painswick House will be supporting National Smile Month which runs from the 18th May 2015. All proceeds will go to the Dental Health Foundation. Their main goal is to improve peoples lives by reducing the harm caused by oral diseases - many of which are entirely preventable. We hope to reinforce oral health to all our patients by having information in the waiting room to read and our hygienists will be on hand to give further advice.

    July 2014 - Roadworks: getting to our practice

    Sewer work is making it a little challenging due to road closures. To help we suggest the following routes:

    a. From Cheltenham College – turn left onto the Bath Road and follow the directions through the Bath Road car park below.

    b. From Montpellier – you can’t turn right from Suffolk Square, so continue straight on down Park Place. Take the first left into Andover Road. Once past the hockey shop (on your right) you meet Painswick Road. Turn left and we are on the right.

    c. From the Bath Road – drive through the car park straight past the vets and cross over Great Norwood Street into St. James Place as you reach Painswick Road turn right and we are on your right.




    July 2014 - New team member

    We're delighted to announce that as from September we are adding to our hygiene team. Liz Outlaw, an award winning hygienist, has been enticed to join our team!




    January 2014 - Going digital
