Wine, art & teeth
Ok, I put my foot in it here! Hosting a wine tasting event at The Covent Garden Dental Spa............ 'What on earth?' I found myself having to defend my appreciation for good wine - or more like - being a dentist who appreciates good wine AND endorses wine consumption to her clients by promoting wine tasting events at Covent Garden Dental Spa......... Mmmmmmmmm. Reading back I feel a slight pang of a guilt. BUT that's besides the point. I am guilty as charged, so be it!
You just had to be there, crazy as it sounds. The Spring Whites and sparkling wines event on the 18th of March was an overwhelming success.
We had Laura Lindsey of Red, White and Pink talking us through some amazing wines, my favourite being the 2008 Rioja Blanco Luis Cana. Laura gave some great wine tasting tips and educated us on how to distinguish between the tastes of classic grapes.
Dave Alexander and Matt Barnett exhibited their unique works of art. Displayed were an eclectic mix of sculptures and art pieces. Our guests enjoyed having the artists talking them through each individual piece and explaining the originality of their work.
Our guests on the evening were a lovely mix of existing Members and friends of the Covent Garden Dental Spa, local Covent Garden visitors and local businesses. A good few were new to the Covent Garden Dental Spa and were all very impressed by the lavish interior and design of the Covent Garden Dental Spa. Several expressed amazement that the decoration and ambience did not in any way resemble that of the dental practices they were used to visiting, but instead exuded the luxury of an upmarket London boutique hotel. I was very flattered. Needless to say, a good portion of those who were visiting for the first time have since become Members of the Covent Garden Dental Spa, and have enjoyed coming to us for dental treatment.
The biggest winner of the night was our massage chair in our Relax and Massage Room. The queue for the relaxing massage on the chair was out the door. I guess the idea of being a Member of the Covent Garden Dental Spa coupled with the thought of having a complementary 15 minute pampering session on our massage chair prior to dental treatment is motive enough!
Now, that’s what I call Dentistry with a pampering touch! Thank you again to all who attended the event and contributed to making it a great success.
