Premium Dental Implants is proud to sponsor Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge at this weekend’s Abergavenny Food Festival.

Dr Nigel Jones, owner of Premium Dental Implants, has several of Tom Kerridge’s books and has been inspired by the chef’s story.

Tom, the owner of the first and only pub in the world to acquire two Michelin stars, has lost 11 stone in the past three years. At this year’s food festival, the acclaimed chef will be talking to columnist and broadcaster Tim Hayward at Abergavenny Borough Theatre about his transformation and his new book Tom Kerridge’s Dopamine Diet.

The book features delicious recipes which release the ‘happy hormone’ dopamine into your brain. The idea is that you eat fantastic food following the diet, but feel good whilst losing weight at the same time.

“We are so proud to sponsor Tom Kerridge at this year’s Abergavenny Food Festival,” said Dr Jones.

“Tom has used his culinary genius to create delicious healthy recipes that not only tickle your taste buds, but also make you feel good about yourself at the same time.”

The majority of adults in the UK have lost a tooth and tooth loss can cause people difficulty. According to the Oral Health Foundation, 74% of all adults in the UK have had a tooth extracted. Dr Jones says tooth loss is one of the biggest barriers people may face in being able to enjoy some of Tom’s mouth-watering recipes and free samples at this year’s Food Festival.

“A gap caused by losing a tooth or multiple teeth can affect your ability to chew properly and alter your diet or nutrition” he said.

“A lot of our patients have told us that this caused them to avoid certain foods like steak, crusty bread, apples, nuts or seeds, especially if they wore dentures. Dental implants can help you enjoy your food and increase variety in your diet by restoring your ability to chew with confidence and eat whatever foods you like.

“If you’ve suffered tooth loss and want a healthier lifestyle, a combination of dental implant treatment and Tom’s new diet could be the perfect recipe for success.”
