New to the Practice

Coronavirus COVID-19

 

Following the Prime Minister’s recent announcement, you will be pleased to know, we will remain open!

There are no restrictions with regards to medical /dental treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments.

Just to reiterate when you arrive at the Practice:

·      We advise that you always wear a mask while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

·      Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

·      As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfect your hands.

In the meantime, please stay safe and contact us if you have any questions

NHS appointments are in very high demand and we may be unable to offer appointments for non urgent treatment and waiting times for NHS treatments may be several weeks.

We would like to make your first visit to the practice as comfortable as possible.

We will require you to send a completed  medical history form to the practice before we can make your first appointment.   You may find it easier if you download the form and email it back to us or come and collect the medical history form from the practice .  If you have any problems filling in your forms, we will give you all the help you need. Please include a list of any medications that you are currently taking.

At your first appointment you will be invited into the surgery to have a chat about your personal dental needs and concerns. Our philosophy is to ensure that all patients are fully informed about the treatment options available and understand the procedures involved, giving you the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like.

Your dental examination will include the following aspects:

  • Examination of each tooth for signs of dental disease such as tooth decay or gum disease.
  • Mouth cancer screen.
  • Any relevant small x-rays that may be needed to aid in complete diagnosis.
  • Discussion of findings and the treatment options available. This will include viewing of specific sites using an intra-oral camera and the relevant x-rays. At that time an estimate of treatment costs will be discussed along with payment options and an idea of timescales.
  • A written treatment plan estimate will be provided. You will then return to see one of our receptionists, who will arrange  your next appointment to best suit your requirements.

It's as easy as that.

If the treatment is of a complex nature, it may be necessary to organise a subsequent appointment to discuss the findings and potential treatment options.

Please note our practice policy on the provison of dental treatment.
