Another Superb Dentist Joins The Team At Top-Rated Peterborough Dental Practice

Dentist Yusuf Parker aims to make his patients smile, especially the nervous ones and would do anything to make dental treatments more pleasant. He’s all about explaining treatments and keeping patients calm and comfortable

Now you can book an appointment with him at WeCare Dental, the most trusted dentist in Peterborough.

MEET YUSUF PARKER – ASSOCIATE DENTAL SURGEON

With four dentists in his immediate family, Yusuf Parker reckons his career path was pretty much laid out for him. “From a very young age, I knew this would be my calling in life,” he says. 

He studied dentistry at The University of The Witwatersrand in Johannesburg South Africa and has 23 years of experience in the field. 

A family man at heart, he actually hails from Cape Town, where he says he spent much of his youth helping his mother in the family business. These are probably his fondest memories. “My late parents and my siblings were and still are an enormous inspiration to me,” says Yusuf. He is married and has two daughters and now lives in Peterborough, UK. 

Having joined the top team at WeCare Dental, Yusuf Parker says he really enjoys interacting with the staff, but nothing beats putting a smile on his patients’ faces, especially the nervous ones.  Always ready with his own smile, he says if he could wave a magic wand he’d make local anesthetic taste of strawberries.

Which treatments are currently gaining popularity?

We do a lot of implant dentistry and adult orthodontics is also a rapidly growing field. Also, more and more patients prefer IV sedation.

 ADVICE STRAIGHT FROM THE DENTIST’S MOUTH

What advice would you offer to nervous patients?

Place your trust in your dental team because you really can have confidence in them. Do not hesitate to ask questions, particularly if this will help to clarify any uncertainties. This often helps to make patients feel comfortable and relaxed.

What advice would you give patients prior and post the procedures in which you specialise?

I give my patients as much advice as possible in order for them to make informed decisions. It’s also important to understand what the treatment entails so that we do actually meet expectations and the patient appreciates this.

What’s the worst mistake people make when it comes to oral/dental care?

They neglect themselves by not arranging regular visits to dentist and/or oral hygienist. 

Your top tips for healthy teeth and gums?

Excellent and regular plaque control, healthy diet, regular check-up visits. Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol intake.

ABOUT WECARE DENTAL

Dentistry has changed radically over the past few decades – what is the most significant change you’ve seen when comparing the dental experiences of your childhood to those you’ve experienced or witnessed at WeCare Dental?

The dentist-patient interaction is something that has developed hugely. The approach is very much patient-centric as opposed to being more treatment-centric. And we now have a plethora of digital tools at our disposal to help and educate our patients about oral health.

What is the most impressive state-of-the-art technology currently offered by WeCare Dental?

I would say CADCAM restorative processing and CBCT. 

We can now work with accuracy that’s unprecedented so outcomes are just spectacular and that’s a huge contributing factor to those patients’ smiles.

Also have a look at our latest dental care technology.

 

In your opinion, what makes WeCare Dental different?

The time, effort and investment  the WeCare team put in to show and prove to patients and staff that they really do care.
