Whether you're comfortable visiting the dentist, you're a nervous patient, or someone in between; we'll make sure you feel comfortable and at ease with the very best patient experience with us.
Once we’ve booked your appointment, we’ll email you a welcome pack 3 days before your visit, with some new patient forms for you to complete and send back to us, or we can send your welcome pack via post. Your first appointment will take around 1.5 hours.
Your dentist will greet you, take you into the surgery, and introduce you to your nurse. The dentist will have already reviewed your new patient forms and will have a chat with you about your medical history, oral health habits, and anything else they need to know.
This involves an examination of your teeth, looking for signs of any decay and existing restorations, and a basic gum check to gauge if you need to return for a more in-depth periodontal exam. We’ll also take a full oral digital scan and intra-oral photos.
Once we’ve completed the initial exam, we’ll have a chat with you about our thoughts on further tests or treatments based on your photos, scans, and exam notes. You’ll also get the chance to ask us any questions you might have, and further appointments will be booked.
This appointment is for a detailed gum pocket examination, and we’ll also get some digital smile photos taken to help us to record your gum level, smile, and any improvements you want to make. We’ll also thoroughly clean your teeth with our EMS Airflow machine.
Based on previous appointments and discussions, your dentist will put together a detailed treatment plan including suggested treatments, cost estimates, and timeframe. You’ll also have the option of joining our membership plan to spread out the cost of your treatment.
Once you’re happy to proceed, your journey to a lovely new smile will begin! Your treatments will be booked in and you’ll have the support and care of our friendly staff throughout your course of treatment – we want you to have an exceptional experience with us and achieve results you’re proud of.New Patients
