At your first visit, the reception staff will ask you to complete a medical history questionnaire.
Following a thorough consultation with your dentist, your treatment options will be discussed and an estimate of the cost for the treatment will be given to you.
Complex courses of treatment may require further visits to discuss the results of radiographs, study models, photographs. Written treatment plans will be given for all but the very basic courses of treatment.
When you arrive for your first appointment our reception will welcome you to the practice and confirm your details. We will ask you to complete our medical questionnaire so the dentist is fully aware of any pre-existing conditions which may affect their assessments and possible treatments.
We are here to help you and do our best to make you feel at ease.
At your appointment time the dentist will welcome you into the surgery and there will be an opportunity to get to know us, to explain the reasons why you've come to see us and to tell us about any dental problems you may be having.
The dentist will then thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, jaw joint and bite. They will usually take x-rays to determine whether the difficult to reach areas between the teeth and underneath fillings are healthy.
The dentist will then discuss with you the findings of the examination and take time to discuss any treatment options available and what that would involve. Our dentists are very approachable and happy to answer any questions or queries you may have.
If further treatment is required a detailed estimate will be provided for you and appointments booked at your convenience.
Once you have had time to read this treatment outline there would be an opportunity to ask questions before any final decisions on treatment are made.
