My experience with Beale & Cullen

Patient, Kelli, can’t speak more highly of Beale & Cullen Dental. 

It had been ten years since Kelli had last ventured to a dentist, with the prospect a nerve wracking one. When husband, Andrew, came home after his first appointment in April last year raving about dental surgeon, Louisa, Kelli “just had to go.” The team “put you at ease from the word go,” says Kelli, who underwent a full examination, where Louisa mapped out all that needed to be done.

Why we are switching to water

Here at Beale & Cullen Dental the team are making the conscious choice to switch to water. Quite reasonably some of our patients ask us why, so we have gathered some frightening facts about sugary drinks to back up our choices.

  • As well as being highly acidic there is no nutritional value in sugary drinks so they contribute empty calories to our diet
  • One can of a sugary drink every day could contribute to a gain of 6.5 kgs in weight over the year
  • There are about 16 teaspoons of sugar in a 600ml bottle of soft drink and a normal size can of soft drink contains 10 teaspoons of sugar
  • The World Health ...
