A PRESTATYN dental surgery will say thank you for its warm welcome to the town by giving up the proceeds of a day's worth of trade to the area's special care baby unit.

Independent dentist Prestatyn Dental opened its books to patients in February, at the former mydentist practice on Fern Avenue.

To raise funds for Glan Clwyd Hospital's Sub-Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Centre the surgery will hold an open day on Saturday, June 22 from 10am until 4pm, where patients will be offered consultations at a discounted rate of £10. All proceeds will be donated by NHS Charity Awyr Las, with practice matching the total raised.

Iain Donnelly, business development manager at the practice, said: "Since we opened in February, we have been astounded by the level of support we've received in Prestatyn, so we felt that we had to give something back to say thank you.

"With this in mind we're asking anyone who'd like a consultation for braces and composite veneers, to come in and donate £10, all of which will be donated to the charity, we'll also match all donations on day - so please give generously."

As well as a show of gratitude, the charitable open day, on Saturday, June 22, also served to mark recent upgrades to the practice, which has continued to be renovated since opening on February 28.

The practice has recently completed work on refurbishing the building's roof, and is now also fully digital.

The cause was selected by Mr Donnelly and clinical director Graham Corser following a straw poll of staff and their patients, to determine which charity was closest to the community's heart.

Mr Donnelly added: "It is fair to say that North Wales is dominated by corporate rather than independent practices, so from my point of view as an independent practice it's important that we try to make sure that from our end we keep a focus on social responsibility to the people of Prestatyn."

"The is the first of many little charitable events we have planned for the special baby care unit, and we're looking forward to more event like this - as well as a sponsored walk - to help support a fantastic cause that means everything to a lot of the people in our practice."
