Appointments

Patients are seen by appointment. It is usually necessary for the first appointment with your dentist to be for examination. This enables your dentist to prescribe and schedule your treatment at mutually convenient times. Once your course of treatment is complete, your dentist will request that you come back to the practice for monitoring your dental health by making an advance appointment for a check-up. Patients are asked to attend appointments promptly since failure to do so results in other patients being inconvenienced. Late attendees may not be seen and failure to attend will incur a charge. If you are unable to attend, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance to allow another patient to be accommodated.

Registrations

We welcome NHS registrations and provide treatment under the National Health Service. In conjunction with this, we also provide a range of cosmetic treatments in our Smile Design service which includes crownsveneers and tooth whitening. For those who wish, we will be pleased to discuss the possibilities of these private options any time during treatment.
