Tariq Drabu was speaking recently in reference to an article published by Dentist website. The article can be read here. He said, “News has been published that a leading UK dental implant company has launched a campaign which will help dental professionals to treat even more patients. This is good news. I am aware that there are still many people who need implants, but they have not had treatment as yet.”
The campaign, entitled “Goodbye Gaps” is being run by DENTSPLY Implants who aim to encourage one million people in the UK to consult their dentists and arrange for the implant treatments they need. Implants are used as the replacement for natural teeth that have been lost. The loss of teeth can occur as a result of decay, disease or trauma. Tariq Drabu continued, “Implants are used to replace missing teeth. It is a specialist area of dental treatment. My hope is that this campaign will encourage patients to arrange consultations with their local specialists.”
Tariq Drabu went on to say, “This campaign will be instrumental in giving patients the information they require about implants and the opportunity to make informed choices. In my experience, some patients are cautious of the treatment, presuming it is costly and extremely painful. The implants and the treatments available today, are excellent and highly effective. Patients with implants are consistently reporting their procedures have been extremely successful.”
The campaign will directly help dental practitioners who will be encouraged to discuss implants with their patients. Tariq Drabu also pointed out, “The campaign will help direct patients toward the dental practitioners who are qualified and able to provide this treatment. While we do offer implant treatments here at Langley, not all dental practices are able to. This campaign will help patient’s locate dental specialists who can help them.”
The objective of the campaign is to encourage more referrals, boost enquiries both on and offline, and increase the number of consultations with patients who may require implants. Tariq Drabu said, “Statistics indicate that there are a great many people who require implants, or who would greatly benefit from implant treatments. I am pleased to see a campaign of this nature being launched. It is a positive way to ensure even more patients in Britain receive the care and dental treatment they require.”
In closing he said, “The UK has a wealth of highly qualified dentists who are specialists in providing implant treatments, crown and bridgework. Patients in Britain are able to access some of the finest dental care available in the world. I hope this campaign succeeds with its aims. I will also be helping patients at Langley who require more information about implant treatments.”
