To get things started we ask approximately 50-60 minutes of your time for an initial new patient consultation. At this in-depth examination Andrew, Tom or Carys will take his time to get to know you and your mouth, your dental history, any problems or concerns you may have, and get an idea of any goals you may like to achieve with your smile. He will thoroughly check all your teeth and gums, take full dental x-rays and take digital photos of inside your mouth to highlight any areas that need looking at further.
A long appointment (45 -60 minutes) with our Dental Hygienist is usually advised at some point to carry out further assessments of your gums and to manage and treat any gum disease.
Once you have seen either of the dentists you will then be given a no obligation dental treatment plan with costs of any treatment that may be needed and we can go from there.
What to expect at your first appointment:
- A friendly and welcoming atmosphere to put you at ease
- A full examination of teeth and gums
- A listening ear for any concerns you have
- Full set of x-rays included
- A no obligation quote for any treatment that may be needed
If you have been seeing a Dentist or Hygienist regularly we can arrange for your dental notes and x-rays to be sent to us prior to your appointment, this gives our dentists a good insight into your dental history and requirements.
