Dentist explaining x ray picture to patient

Your first visit

Your first visit will be a clam and gentle experience. We have a beautiful tranquil waiting room where you will be offered a drink, asked fill out medical form and given price list.

In the surgery you will meet the dentist and will spend time to get to know each other. We will ask you to tell us about your experiences with dentistry in the past and your thoughts and wishes about for your teeth. We give you the time and space to express yourself and listen non judgementally. After a thorough exam and X-rays (if necessary with patients consent) we will show you in a mirror the current condition of your mouth and give an explanation of the X-rays.  We then discuss the pros and cons of your treatment options and give you all the information and guidance you need to decide which option to choose.

Written cost quotations are always given and different payment options are available. At reception one of our team will run through again what has been discussed and answer any further questions. When you are ready flexible and convenient appointment times will be offered.
