Latest Patient Information

COVID-19 outbreak
To all our valued patient

I sincerely hope at this unprecedented time that you and your families are healthy and safe.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest guidelines from the Chief Dental Officer and the Government guidelines on social distancing.

Therefore, effective from tomorrow, we will be postponing and rearranging all non-emergency dentistry.

This is a not a decision ‘we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families.

The reasoning for this is primarily to reduce transmission and to reduce use of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is required by our hospitals at this crucial time.

Please note we have been advised that only serious dental emergencies are to be seen and this includes facial swelling, pain not controlled by pain relief, continuous bleeding and trauma.

A dental emergency is classed as:

· Severe pain for over 48 hours

· Facial Swelling

· Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding If you have any of the above symptoms, please email us on Info@Start-Smiling.Co.Uk where a member of our team can provide advice or if necessary, arrange an emergency appointment.

** PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE AT THE PRACTICE UNANNOUNCED AS WE WILL NOT BE OPEN **

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean that treatment timelines are extended. In almost all instances delaying any elective dentistry will be inconsequential and we will be able to catch-up with implant work, cosmetic treatment, tooth straightening, gum health and restorative dentistry when it is safe to do so. If you are at all concerned about any treatment that you may be in the middle of then. Please do not hesitate to contact the team via email.

If your appointment needs to be postponed, then one of the team will be in touch very shortly. We are doing our best in a difficult situation and appreciate your understanding at this challenging time.

Video consultations will be available at request and please rest-assured that we will still be accessible via email for any support or advice. Please email or message us and a member of the Start Smiling team will be in touch as soon as possible.

We will review the situation over the next weeks/months and let you know as the advice changes.

A huge heartfelt thank you to all our patients and to the Start Smiling Team for standing-up and supporting each other as a community during these uncertain times.

Stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.

Regards- Start Smiling Dental Practice

Meet Your Dentist Tom

Start Smiling: Best Dentist in Essex Uniform-Tom-Sealey-1-b489cb9b34b06ce99f9622d27fb72546

*Pain Free Dentist - Tom Sealey

Dr Thomas Sealey Bchd (2006), MMedEd, MSc Endo (GDC:104101)

When He’s Not Being A Denitst

Tom is married and has a cheeky baby son called Jaxson whos now 18-months old. He is a little monkey and we all wonder if he’ll end up being a dentist like his dad?

Start Smiling: Best Dentist in Essex toms-baby-e1515578550327

Tom loves skiing and is heading off to Morzine ski resort in France this January to teach a group of dentists about smile makeovers, hopefully he’ll get some good skiing in too. He doesn’t get a lot of spare time but is trying desperately to get into Golf, so far very unsuccessfully though. Maybe 2019 will be the year for his golfing to get better???… probably not!

Dentistry Award Winning Dentist

Dr Tom has won the award of ‘Best Young Dentist’ at the prestigious Dentistry Awards on more than one occasion (2015 & 2016) and was shortlisted as a finalist in the 2017 and 2018 Dentistry Awards. He won 5 awards at the 2018 Aesthetic Dentistry Awards and has been shortlisted for 11 categories in the upcoming 2019 Awards in March. These Awards celebrate the most beautiful cosmetic dentistry from around the UK and are considered the pinnacle of achievement for cosmetic dentists. Wish him luck for the upcoming award ceremony in March.

Dr Tom qualified from Leeds University in 2006 with Bachelors in Dental Surgery. He moved to Essex where he worked in a very large NHS Dental Practice for 8 years before becoming the Practice Principal at Start-Smiling. During this time he completed a Master degree in Medical Education and became an Equivalency Trainer and a Foundation Dental Trainer which means he trained newly-qualified dentists.

Dr Tom’s passion for learning continued as he went on to complete his second Master degree, Endodontic Practice at Queen Mary University of London. This training provides Dr Tom with more advanced skills and knowledge and enables him to complete root canal treatments to a much higher standard using a sophisticated dental microscope and therefore improves successful outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Dr Tom’s vast experience with many different types of cosmetic orthodontic appliances and his passion for pain-free and injection-free cosmetic smile makeovers has led him towards being an international lecturer. He lectures around the world and teaches other dentists about advanced cosmetic dental techniques. He writes for many Dental Publications and is on the Editorial board of the prestigious magazine Orthodontic Practice. Examples of his clinical work have reached international recognition, being published in Cosmetic dentistry Journals around the world to demonstrate to other dentists what amazing smile transformations can be achieved with minimally invasive and pain-free dental techniques.

Dr Tom runs his own course in the UK where dentists travel from far and wide to learn his techniques and try to emulate his precise and beautiful smile makeovers. The below video is Dr Tom in action, teaching on one of his courses:

His focus is on achieving the perfect smile for every patient but without having to drill the natural teeth and without injections. This technique is painlessly performed by straightening the teeth first, then whitening them, followed by using state-of-the-art clinical restorative filling materials to re-shape the natural teeth and create the perfect smile.

Dr Tom’s calm and thorough approach is reflected by his excellent reputation, and his enthusiasm for continuing advanced training and broad clinical experience has been recognized and rewarded by his peers. His skill with both fixed and removable tooth straightening systems has allowed Start-Smiling to be one of only 10 Practices in the UK with the recognition of an Orthodontic Centre of Excellence. This is a great achievement.

In addition to being voted as the Best Young Dentist in the South, Dr Tom is the inventor and patent-owner of a revolutionary new type of orthodontic retainer which is produced exclusively by CFast Orthodontic Solutions and is called the SOLID Retainer. This retainer is completely smooth and invisible and keeps your teeth perfectly straight after tooth straightening with either fixed or removable braces. Dr Tom travels the world to visit laboratories that manufacture the SOLID retainer to ensure that it is produced to the highest of standards and keeps teeth straight for people all over the globe.

Dr Tom has a wealth of experience as a General Dental Practitioner and has honed his skills to extremely high levels. Through his calm, methodical and gentle approach, he is able to individualise your treatment so that it becomes an effective and positive dental experience. Please visit the Gallery section to see examples of Dr Tom’s dentistry and he would love to meet you for a free consultation to discuss your needs.

Award Winning Dentist

Restorative: Single tooth implant

Dr Thomas Sealey won the highly sought-after Award of most beautiful and natural implant restoration in the whole of the UK in 2018.  This means that he was able to restore a patient’s missing front tooth with a dental implant to such a high standard that it was considered the most fine-looking and natural tooth-replacement by a leading panel of experts across the whole of UK-dentistry.  This is an incredible achievement.

Highly Commended; Restorative: Single tooth Ceramic

Dr Sealey was able to change a dark and discoloured front tooth dental crown and replace it with such a stunning new crown that it was indistinguishable within his patient’s smile.  This is the most natural result that all dentists aim to achieve.  His work was so beautiful that he was awarded the ‘Highly Commended’ award at the 2018 Aesthetic Dentistry Awards as voted by a panel of expert dentists from across the UK.
