First Visit

On your first visit, we would ask that you arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment. On arrival you will be asked to fill out a Medical and Dental History Form. Please be assured that all information you provide is strictly confidential.

You will be shown to one of our 2 surgeries to meet the dentist and their nurse. We take the time to discuss any dental issues you are having and listen to your concerns. The dentist will also talk through your medical form, discussing any relevant issues. Once we have completed this, we will carry out a thorough dental examination and oral cancer screening, checking your teeth, gums and surrounding tissues.

We use the latest technology such as low dose digital radiography and intra oral cameras, which allow us to demonstrate to you any problem areas and help you understand treatments available to you.

Note: We use Digital x-rays, which reduce radiation by up to 90%.

  • It is very important to us that you understand and are involved in the diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • We will give you a range of treatment options for consideration.
  • We work with you to ensure you are fully informed and thus can make the appropriate choices for your treatment plan under our clinical guidance.
  • We are very open and clear about the cost of proposed treatment, and give every patient a detailed treatment plan with a written estimate of costs.
  • In complex cases we may need to gather more detailed information and involve other colleagues with the relevant specialty.

Disabled Access: Our practice is able to offer disabled access.
