All smiles at 25th birthday party
Last Friday saw a throng of patients and partygoers at Tonbridge dental practice and facial aesthetic clinic the Stradbrook Dental Centre, as the practice celebrated 25 years and held a celebratory BBQ and Hog Roast. Even the weather was kind as the forecast thunderstorms held off.
The partners at the practice; Amanda Joyner, Simon Peter and Mark Haswell wanted to give something back after having enjoyed looking after the people of Tonbridge and the surrounding areas for the last quarter of a century.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Tonbridge and Malling were in attendance and were given a guided tour of the facilities. They had the opportunity to see how dentistry and healthcare have changed in the last 25 years and also meet with and talk to patients of the centre both new and long standing. (The Mayor and the Mayoress have also been patients of the practice for some years.)
Attendees enjoyed a hog roast (and vegetarian options!) as well as local Kent wines, beer and juices. Local charity Hospice in the Weald also attended the event and £178.50 was raised at the event raffle along with a further practice donation.
A 1990 theme was in evidence on the music front and some of the marquee walls were even decorated with pictures of Amanda, Simon and Mark in 1990! All attendees also went away with a practice goody bag.
Partner Dr Mark Haswell commented, "This event was really a thank you to all of our patients, staff and the wider community for supporting us since 1990. Here’s to the next 25 years!"
