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.
