We hope to find that you have a nice healthy mouth. If we do find any problems we will go through the different options available to treat them and discuss the benefits, risks and costs of each option. We will make a recommendation on what treatment option is ideal and what we would do if we were in your shoes, however we respect our patients autonomy and will always support whichever treatment option you go for. Even if it is that is to have no treatment. You will be given a printed plan with the different treatment options, and time to consider them.
We believe that prevention is better than cure and it is considered best practice to have regular hygienist appointments for professional cleaning of soft and hardened plaque (tartar) and personalised feedback on how to care better for your teeth and gums at home.

Before you come for your appointment:
- Please aim to arrive to your first appointment about 10 minutes early in order to be welcomed by our reception team and to fill out a medical and dental history form.
- Whilst we always strive to see everyone at the planned appointment time, sometimes due to unforeseen treatment needs of a patient before you, you may be called in late. Please understand that it is possible for this to happen. If we are delayed we will aim to keep you notified and offer you a drink if there is time.
- Let us know how we are doing – we like to hear your feedback so that we can do our best to make sure our patients feel well looked after, and so we can continue to improve the services we offer. There is an anonymous written feedback box at reception or alternatively email our practice manager: [email protected]. Also, we appreciate receiving reviews on Google and Facebook.
