We would like to make your visit to us very welcoming. Please help us by letting reception know if you have any special requirements or problems, either dental or generally. First we will need to ask questions about your general health before we can safely treat you.
It is very helpful if you bring any medicines with you that you use regularly. Bringing a repeat prescription list from your doctor is extremely useful.
During your dental examination we not only check your teeth for dental problems and your gums for periodontal disease but we check your jaw joints and check your mouth for oral cancer. This is on the increase these days including in younger people. We can also offer advice about tooth straightening, both adults and children. Please ask as we are happy to give advice on other cosmetic issues too including veneers, implants and tooth whitening.
As we are a preventive practice, at the end of your appointment we will give you advice of how to prevent problems in the future. It is very important to listen to this advice as it can save you hours of treatment and save you dental bills in the future! Finally we will recommend regular Dental Examinations to monitor your oral health. It will vary according to your need (not necessarily 6 months) and may be between 3 months or sometimes more than a year.
We endeavour to see all patients and have a fully equipped downstairs surgery and a toilet both with wheelchair access. There is a small step up at the front door which most wheelchair users can use but we do have a portable ramp which can be placed if this is a problem. If you have any
disability that you think we need to know about please contact us before your appointment and we will do our best to put suitable arrangements in place. See our ACCESS STATEMENT by clicking HERE
