New Patient Information


We are really sorry to say that for the moment we are unable to take on any  new patients.  We have taken the decision because  feel it best not to risk lowering the quality of our service .  However, it won’t be too long a wait and we are taking names and numbers for people who are happy to wait (please contact us and we will add you to our list).  We will be reviewing the situation early in July 2017.

We’re really sorry if you needed to see someone sooner.


ADULTS:

New adult patients are invited to join the Practice under private care arrangements.

The principal benefits of private dental care are outlined on this page.  However, we are happy to answer any further questions you may have regarding insurance schemes and alternative methods of payment.

CHILDREN:

As a fully private practice we charge for children’s appointments. Details on the pricing can be found below. Treatment is charged per item, and a full treatment plan and breakdown of costs will be provided. Please see our payment plans for more details on saving money on children’s appointments.

12-18 years old: £85.50

PRIVATE CARE FEATURES:

  • No joining fee
  • No monthly subscription
  • You pay only for your examinations and treatments:
    • NHS regulations limit certain types of dental treatment and impose restrictions regarding the materials that may be used.
    • For private care patients there are no such restrictions.
    • New dental materials and procedures provide significant improvements in appearance leading to increased patient confidence and satisfaction.
    • Private patients also benefit from longer appointments in a more relaxed atmosphere.
    • Tooth whitening techniques and superb new tooth-like filling materials and porcelains for crowns, bridges and veneers are now available.
    • Incredibly realistic new tooth-like and gum-like acrylics for full and partial dentures.
    • Private care means more time to listen to your needs, discuss proposed treatment options and offer you appropriate advice on a variety of dental issues.
    • To reduce the risk of decay and other dental disorders we spend time on oral hygiene techniques (eg. brushing and flossing), as well as providing help and advice on smoking cessation.
    • An in-mouth intra-oral camera is used to take before and after photographs to help you identify problems and to see how they improve after treatment.
    • Computer graphics will help you visualise treatments and procedures more clearly.
    • A wide selection of literature will be available for you to take away.
    • As a new private care patient, you will be offered an ‘initial dental assessment’ where you can share your dental concerns and aspirations with your dentist and benefit from a thorough dental examination.

    HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

  • Our current fee guide is on display in the reception area, or you can call for an indication of our latest prices.
    • The price of your initial assessment is £95. This includes:
      – full dental and periodontal (gum) assessment.
      – oral cancer screening.
      – two small x-rays.
      – diet/lifestyle and oral hygiene assessment and advice.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM US?

  • Following your assessment, a fully costed and itemised treatment plan will be provided to reflect the various options that have been discussed with you.

WHAT DO WE EXPECT FROM YOU?

  • In return, we do ask you to attend on time for your dental treatment and require 48 hours notice if you wish to cancel or re-arrange an appointment. We do normally charge for missed appointments and late cancellations.
