Introducing our Head Dental Receptionist Pamela Mellor. Pamela is originally from Aboyne. She boasts a wealth of experience in the dental sector having started out as a trainee dental nurse earlier on in her career.

Over the years Pamela has progressed, focusing on the administrative and management side of dental practice. She has worked in both NHS and Private practice and has a fantastic knowledge of the dental sector.  She particularly enjoys the variety and day to day interaction experienced when working on the front desk at Inverurie Dental Dental Practice.

After a career break from dentistry we are delighted to welcome Pamela back to the profession and to Inverurie Dental Practice as our Head Receptionist. She has superb people skills, a friendly voice and a great manner with patients helping put them at ease from the outset.

When not working Pamela enjoys spending her free time with her husband, daughter and their 2 dogs. She likes going away for weekends as much as possible, visiting new places and meeting up with friends and family whenever she can.

Childsmile at IDP

Preventitive Dental Care for your family

Preventitive Dental Care for your family at Inverurie Dental Practice

Inverurie Dental Practice is a Childsmile Dental Practice. This means the dental team will:

  • give information on how teeth grow and develop and carry out regular checks to make sure the teeth and gums are healthy.
  • offer hints and tips on dental care.
  • demonstrate and explain toothbrushing.
  • promote toothbrushing messages e.g. spit don’t rinse.
  • advise on weaning and healthy snacks and drinks.
  • provide clinical care including twice yearly fluoride varnish.
  • At your initial visit it may be the dental nurse you see. The dental nurse will advise you on how to keep your child’s teeth healthy and help with practical problems such as teething, weaning and choosing the right food and drinks.
  • The dentist will check your child’s teeth and gums at least once a year, from around 18 months and give any treatment your child might need. These regular visits will also help your child to become familiar with being examined by a dentist.
  • From the age of two, the dental practice team can provide additional preventive care, such as fluoride varnish and fissure sealant
