What can you expect on your first visit to our practice?
As a private practice we are able to spend the time necessary to provide you with the highest quality of treatment and advice. At your initial consultation appointment we will almost always be able to provide you with a detailed written estimate of any dental treatment which may be necessary. In more complex cases we may require a couple of appointments to fully investigate the treatment options and discuss the costs and implications with you.Because we do not rush you in and out of the surgery, you can expect to be at the practice for about half an hour on your first visit.
We will also ask you to fill in a confidential medical history form, which we will normally post to you when you book your appointment or you can download one here.
Once we have completed any initial treatment required, we generally recommend Denplan Care
to help improve your long term dental health and as an excellent way to budget for any future costs. Along with this we recommend regular check-ups every three, six or twelve months to enable us to detect minor problems before they become major ones, which means treatment is kept to a minimum. We believe very strongly in regular monitoring of your total oral health. We will advise you of the recall interval we feel is appropriate for you.
We will only start treatment at this visit with your consent and usually only because it is urgent.
