New Patients & Children

If you have not visited the dentist for some time and are nervous about making that first appointment be assured that we are understanding and fully aware of your concerns.

Your first visit is a 30 minute consultation appointment where you will be asked to fill in a confidential medical history questionnaire. If you are taking any prescribed medication please bring a list of any drugs that you are taking with you.

On your examination appointment we will:

1. Check the health of your soft tissue including an oral cancer check
2. Check and record the condition of your gums
3. Check the teeth
4. Take digital radiographs (x rays) as needed
5. Undertake urgent treatment if required

The treatment options and costs will then be discussed with you. We will provide you with a written treatment plan along with the cost of each item of treatment for your reference. We will keep you informed of any changes that may occur.


People are living longer and wanting to keep their teeth longer

With care there is no reason why cosmetic treatment cannot be carried out. Age is no barrier for cosmetic treatment whether it is tooth whitening, crowns or new dentures. So live a little and smile a lot!

We have two ground floor surgeries with dental chairs capable of adjusting to your requirements
Our reception staff are happy to arrange a taxi to take you home.


Dental care for children is very important to us; children are given a special welcome to the practice. You are able to register your son or daughter from birth.

On their first visit it may only involve them simply sitting on a parents lap and meeting the dentist, possibly having their teeth counted if they are happy or may be just having a ride in the dental chair.

Children are registered under the NHS. Appointment times very according to your child's needs.
