Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered…

Who looks after the teeth when treatment is finished?

As treatment is by referral, you will see your own dentist for checkups. Of course, if you have any problem with any of the treatment provided by us, then you can contact us directly and we will see you. Often in cases of gum disease treatment, review appointments are necessary.

My teeth are healthy but I don’t like their appearance. Can this be treated?

Yes, there are several possible methods of improving the aesthetic of your teeth, and we can discuss the relative merits of each with you.

Can anyone attend the practice?

Yes, but if we are to provide treatment then we will need to liaise with your own dentist, as we work by referral.

Can I get a second opinion?

Certainly, we are happy to provide a second opinion, in confidence if required.

What do you charge?

As the very nature of the work we do tends to be unique to that patient, it is difficult to give exact costs. However, we list some basic fees on our basic pricelist, and all patients are given a written costing before treatment starts

When do I pay for my treatment, before or after?

Treatment is paid as and when it is provided, so the treatment costs are spread out over the appointments.

Do you have a long waiting list?

This varies. We like to offer patients an appointment within about ten days.

Can I choose which specialist practice I am referred to?

Yes, the patient has the ultimate choice to which they are referred.

Do you have a complaints policy?

Yes, please click here.
