2022 Newsletter December

It’s been another year since our last Newsletter and we have lots of exciting news to share with you all.

But before we begin, we just want to say a big thank you to all of our patients for another year of having you by our side and a big thank you to our hardworking staff. Without any of you, Kendrick wouldn’t be where they are today!

New Staff:

Baby News

Congratulations to our receptionist Chelsie on recently becoming engaged. Her fiancé Lee proposed last year in New York, Central Park in December 2021. Shortly after this, Chelsie announced her pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Zachary Jude, on 7th September 2022. Both mum and baby are doing well, and Chelsie is enjoying her maternity leave, mainly entertaining all the staff here at the practice that keep visiting for cuddles.

They are busy planning their wedding, hopefully for 2023.


We are also excited to welcome another two additions to the Kendrick View family. Trisha, Dr Henesy’s nurse gave birth to twin girls, Ellah and Islah, in July this year. Both the girls weighed over 6lb and are happy and healthy, Trisha has her work cut out with two but has taken to motherhood well and is enjoying every minute. We’ve also enjoyed the cuddles when she has managed to pop in to see us. 😊

Komal Bhabra, our visiting practitioner for Endodontics, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Kaira, in July this year. Komal and Kaira are both well and Komal’s son is very excited to be a big brother! We welcomed Komal back to the practice in October.

Waiting Room

Some of you may have noticed that our waiting room has been looking dreary and drab in the past few years due to Covid and social distancing guidelines. Since restrictions are slowly being lifted, we are happy to have had a makeover and brought some comfort and style back for our patients.

New Website

We have been busy behind the scenes working alongside Dental Design to create our new website. We are happy to say we have now gone live!

Patient Satisfaction Survey

We’d like to say a big thank you to all our patients that received and kindly took the time to fill out our patient satisfaction survey.


With Christmas only around the corner it’s time to start thinking about the festive parties and family gatherings. I’m sure you’ll want to be looking your best for the occasion so have you thought about teeth whitening?

At Kendrick View we offer a home whitening kit called White Dental Beauty. This comes in various strengths depending on suitability and offers a simple step by step procedure to achieve great results.

We would initially need to book you for an impression appointment, the impressions would be sent to a lab and returned to us within two weeks. You can then come in for your second appointment to check the trays fit correctly and the dentist would run through the whitening process for you to do at home. We supply 8 syringes of whitening in the initial whitening cost, any further syringes can be purchased from us when needed.

If you are interested, please contact us on reception by calling 01189590222 or email the practice at reception@kendrickdental.co.uk

Reading Hockey Club

Kendrick View are delighted to announce that we are sponsoring Reading Hockey Club for the forthcoming season. Reading HC are one of the most successful clubs in the country with years of success domestically and in Europe. After a brief spell outside of the elite, both their men’s and women’s teams are back playing in the Premier Division. Alongside this they have a thriving junior’s section which has produced many top talents over the years. We wish them all the best and encourage all our patients to get down to support them!

Going Digital

As a practice that is always keeping up to date with the latest technology you may notice the next time you need a mould of your teeth taken a lack of messy impression material. At Kendrick View we have recently invested in state-of-the-art digital scanners which can be used to take scans of your teeth, removing the need for impressions and the mess and discomfort that goes with them.
