New Patients

Welcome to the family!

NEW PATIENT APPOINTMENTS

New patient appointments can be made by contacting reception by telephone or in person.

Please download and fill in our medical history form before attending and bring it along to your appointment. If you are not able to do this, please advise us at the time of booking so that we can post one out to you.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A new patient examination is a 30 minute appointment where your medical history, dental needs and full mouth examination is carried out. This includes an assessment which looks at your individual risk of dental caries (decay), tooth wear, periodontal (gum) disease and oral cancer. X-rays may be taken if clinically necessary.

The dentist will then discuss your treatment plan. This will include options available, costs and further appointments required. The dentist may advice that you visit one of our hygienists to help maintain or improve your oral health. Indeed if you have been used to seeing a hygienist regularly at your previous practice you may want to book this directly at reception along with your new patient appointment.
