Services available

We have agreed with NHS England to provide NHS services for all patients.

NHS dental treatment includes all treatment necessary to secure and maintain your oral health.

We also provide a full range of private treatment options for patients who choose to have treatment that is not available on the NHS. Please ask for details.

We can also refer you to another dentist if you require specialist treatment involving sedation or orthodontics.

The poster in our waiting room has information about  the cost of NHS treatment. Your dentist will advise you of the cost of your private treatment.

Appointments

Making Appointments

If you ask us for an appointment, we will try to offer you one as soon as possible at a convenient time. You can make an appointment by phoning 01684 567 111.

You can choose which dentist you would like to see at the practice, including your regular dentist, but please note this will depend on the appointments available.

Reminders and recalls

At the end of your course of treatment, your dentist will discuss when you will need to see a dentist again. NHS dentists now follow guidelines issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). This means you will attend as often as is needed to keep you teeth and gums healthy and may no longer need a check up every six months.

We do provide a reminder service whereby we send a reminder letter in the post or contact you by SMS text or email when your check up is due.

Cancellations

If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible so that we can give the appointment to someone else. Missed appointments waste NHS time, and as per our Failed To Attend Policy, if you miss more than three appointments and give less than 24 hours notice, we may not be able to complete your treatment or offer you NHS care in the future.

Urgent treatment & out of hours care

Urgent treatment means treatment that the dentist considers necessary to relieve severe pain or prevent your oral condition deteriorating before you can make a normal appointment.

If you need urgent treatment outside of the practice opening hours you can contact NHS 111. The out of hours service they provide is available Monday to Thursday, 6pm t0 8am, from 6pm on Friday to 8am on Monday; and all bank holidays until 8am the next working day.

We also offer a number of appointments during practice opening hours for patients who need urgent treatment. If you think you need urgent treatment you can contact us on 01684 567 111 during our opening hours.
