What to expect
Your first visit
  • You will be welcomed by a team member at reception. We will ensure that all your personal details are correct.
  • If you haven't already done so, you will need to fill out a few forms such as a medical history and a patient questionnaire. Once these are completed, you will be ready to see the dentist.
  • You will be shown to the treatment room where you will meet more members of our team.
  • This is your time and you will have the opportunity to ask your dentist any questions that you may have.
  • The dentist will then carry out a tooth-by-tooth examination of your mouth, including an oral cancer screening, a gum examination and an assessment of your jaw joints. We will also take X-rays and photos of your teeth if necessary.
  • Once this has all been completed, you and your dentist will have the opportunity to discuss your treatment options.
  • The final step is to book further recommended appointments at reception.
Remember - we take time to get to know you and your teeth. Please ask any questions you may have or get in touch after your appointment to check any details.
