| Our Dental Practice |

The NHS provides treatment necessary to secure and maintain your oral health but there are other options and materials available that are not available under the NHS.  These can include white fillings, tooth whitening, bridges, crowns and dentures. Your dentist will be happy to discuss all the options with you including costs. If you are an NHS patient you may opt to pay the private fee for any supplemental treatments you choose.

The dentists and clinical team are all registered with the General Dental Council and as such have a duty to follow the standards set out by the council. These standards include

  • Putting the patients interests first
  • Communicating effectively with our patients
  • Obtaining valid consent from our patients for treatment and care
  • Maintaining and protecting our patient’s information
  • Operating a clear and effective complaints procedure
  • Maintaining, developing and working within our professional knowledge and skills
  • Raising concerns if our patients are considered to be at risk
  • Maintaining confidence in ourselves and the dental profession with our personal behaviour

Through continual professional development and monthly staff meetings, we continue striving to maintain these standards. Our separate policies on cross infection, data protection and complaints are available in reception.

We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and our latest report can be seen on their website…

Specialist Services

Our patients can be referred for specialist services such as orthodontics, periodontics (gum disease), endodontics (root canal therapy) and sedation.
We have a visiting implantologist who comes once a month to see patients who require implants.
Please note that not all of these services are available under the NHS and your dentist will be able to discuss these options with you.

Hygienist Services

Changes in legislation mean that patients are now able to access a standard dental hygiene appointment without the need to have a dental examination with a dentist.
Whilst we always advise you to have regular routine examinations with a dentist of your choice, you can see our hygienist for hygiene care. If your dental practice does not have a hygienist, we will also be happy to accept referrals from your own dentist.
Our hygienists will discuss the treatment process with you and where appropriate advise a follow on appointment and liaise with your own dentist.
All new patients to the practice who required direct access to our hygienist services will be required to fill in an up to date medical history and a consent form prior to treatment.
There may be the rare circumstance when we are unable to begin treatment. This may be due to the condition of your mouth, your general health or medical history. In this instance, we may request you are seen by a dentist first.
