Excellence in Dentistry
Our aim is to provide you with the best dental treatment and quality of care. You can be confident that our expertise and experience will help us to manage even the most challenging and complicated cases with superb results.
We look forward to welcoming you to the practice and are always delighted to see new patients. We are grateful for referrals and hope you will recommend us to your family, friends and colleagues.
You may have already been in contact with our team of Patient Coordinators who would normally be your first point of contact. They will be delighted to help you with any questions and concerns prior to your visit and to arrange your first appointment.
Usually your first visit will be an initial consultation with one of the dentists. At this visit we will discuss your concerns and carry out a brief examination of your mouth along with some preliminary X-rays to give us an idea of your dental condition. We will then talk about the treatment possibilities and our recommendations, and give you a rough idea of the fees involved.
If after your initial visit you decide to pursue things further with us, one of our patient coordinators will be happy to organise subsequent appointments.
The next step is usually a more detailed examination and evaluation in order to give a more precise idea of your dental treatment needs, possible options and fees involved. This entails a thorough full case assessment of your mouth.
At this appointment we will evaluate the health, condition and appearance of your teeth, gums, the way your teeth bite, the jaw-joints (TMJ’s) and the general condition of the soft tissues in your mouth. We normally need to take further X-rays to check for any problems not readily visible in the mouth, along with clinical photographs and study moulds of your teeth.
If you suffer from periodontal disease (gum disease), we may also carry out and in-depth pocket analysis and further tests to help us treat you more effectively. There is increasing evidence that periodontal & oral disease is linked to systemic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes and that there may be an increased risk of contracting these diseases if your oral health is poor. Hence the importance of ensuring that any disease in your mouth is treated effectively and your oral health is well maintained to a very high standard.
Finally, it is our aim that whatever treatment we recommend will be in your best interest, i.e. to achieve the goals of the treatment in a way that will optimise the health of your mouth and provide the most predictable and durable long term solution. We will always strive to achieve the best feasible result and carry out any dental work to the highest standards of precision and care. Whilst our fees may be higher than most, the quality of treatment and, of course, the results speak for themselves.
