Arranging an Appointment at Our Family-Friendly Practice

New patient at the receptionTo schedule an appointment with our friendly staff, please give our practice a call. Alternatively, if you schedule an appointment online, a member of our staff will get in touch with you via phone. Our receptionist will then ask you a series of simple questions to determine how we can best assist you on the day of your visit.

Your First Visit

When you or your family arrive at our dental practice for the first time, our receptionist will greet you warmly before inviting you to take a seat in our comfortable waiting area. Here, you’ll find a range of reading material, such as new magazines, to keep you entertained if you wish.

Your first visit will take the form of an hour-long consultation with Dr Nicola to talk you through your dental desires, concerns, or questions. Dr Nicola takes this time to get to know each client, as she is then able to produce a personalised treatment plan with their needs and wants in mind. The treatment plan is also a great way to show a client what they can expect in the coming visits, including treatments and costs. Armed with this information, both Dr Nicola and the client can then discuss topics such as payment plans or any other relevant information.

Gaining a Comprehensive Overview of Your Oral Health

In some circumstances, a special x-ray, an OPG, is required that looks at the lower face, teeth, jaw joints and maxillary sinuses. This x-ray is useful to demonstrate the number of teeth as well as their position and growth, and is particularly useful to assess teeth that have not surfaced yet or pathology within the jaw bone.

Dr Nicola will refer you for one of these x-rays, if required.
