Your first visit
We look forward to welcoming you to the practice. On your first visit, please arrive 10 minutes early. This allows time to complete a medical and dental questionnaire. This information is really important as it allows us to get to know you and tailor your dental treatment to you.
You can make yourself comfortable in our attractive, calm waiting room and browse a range of interesting magazines.
You will be called through to meet your dentist and his/her dental care assistant. They will take time to discuss your dental needs, and listen to any concerns you may have.
You will then receive a thorough dental examination, including screening for oral cancer. The dentist may take radiographs – x-rays – if required. Please note that we use Digital x-rays, which reduce radiation by up to 50%
Your dentist will give you a range of treatment options for your consideration as necessary. By explaining the options fully, you are able to make an informed decision and together, we can formulate a treatment plan that you are happy with. You will be provided with a detailed treatment plan and a written estimate of costs.
Appointments can then be made for your treatment. We operate a pay-as you-go policy, although laboratory items will require advance payment.
Once your course of treatment is complete, your dentist will discuss how often you will require maintenance treatment – or routine "check-ups", usually this will be six monthly. You can make your maintenance appointment for the dentist and hygienist, and we can send you a reminder closer to the time.
You are encouraged to give us your feedback at any time and you can speak to our practice manager – Mrs. Georgina Mitchell, or indeed any member of staff.
We look forward to meeting you and to helping you to smile with confidence.
