Your experience starts with a dental examination. Your dentist will check your health by asking you questions, reviewing your physical condition and medical history, and by taking any necessary X-rays. (Some information is collected using computer tablets in reception, to be completed whilst you wait from your appointment.)
Both NHS and private patients are cared for. All patients must be first registered with the dental practice.
Following the dental examination, your dentist will discuss any treatment options that they feel are necessary. With your consent, the treatment will be done either at the time of the examination if possible, or at a future booked treatment appointment(s).
There are many treatment options available.
Our NHS patients are treated within the confines of the NHS contract. An explanation of who is entitled to NHS dental treatment, what that the treatment entails and its cost are given on the NHS Choices website and summarised here. Adult NHS patients wishing to be exempted from NHS charges must bring their 'exemption certificate' for inspection at every visit.
You may find that some treatments are better accessed privately, i.e. independent of the NHS. We will discuss all treatment options and their charges with you.
