CAN I GET A SAME-DAY APPOINTMENT?
In some cases same-day appointments are available. Please call the practice to check. We have evening appointments available until 7pm, these get booked further in advance so please plan ahead if you are wanting a late appointment.
WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?
This will depend on your insurance provider. Please bring any necessary paperwork with you to your appointment for me to complete. Please note there may be an additional cost for this if additional appointment slots are needed.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCING OPTIONS?
Yes, we have several finance options available which can be arranged through our friendly care coordinator. We also have monthly payment plans available for those wanting to spread out the cost of routine dental care.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE CLINICAL PHOTOS TAKEN?
No. All patients who have their photos on my website, articles or social media have consented for this specific use. Your care and visits will be kept strictly confidential unless you consent otherwise.
WHAT IS A FREE CONSULTATION?
Complementary cosmetic consultations are for 30 minutes. A £30 deposit will be taken. This is a chance for you to tell me about your concerns and for us to consider the options available to you. It is also an opportunity for you to get to know me, before deciding which treatment you would like to begin. This is not a dental examination or health check.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU HAVE?
I qualified from the University of Leeds with distinction in an MChD/BChD in Dental Surgery. This also includes a BSc in Oral Science. I have also been awarded the MFDS RCPS(Glas), a further qualification in general dentistry. I have also done further training and courses on occlusion, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and smile makeovers.
CAN I GET REPLACEMENT VENEERS/COMPOSITES?
In most cases, the answer to this question is yes! While neither of these procedures is usually fully reversible, in most circumstances we are able to replace existing dentistry and correct things you don't like about it.
WILL TREATMENT BE PAINFUL?
No, Your comfort is extremely important to me and I use multiple techniques to make treatment both gentle and relaxing. I also insist all patients tell me if anything doesn't feel quite right and will always stop when asked! Even if it is just for the patient to have a rest or a drink.
WILL TREATMENT MAKE MY TEETH SENSITIVE?
Some patients will find their teeth are more sensitive to cold whilst whitening them but this subsides after a few days post-treatment. There are some procedures which can give you temporary sensitivity afterwards but it is very rare for this to be an ongoing problem!
CAN YOU SEE MY WHOLE FAMILY?
Yes! I am currently accepting new patients and see both children and adults for routine dentistry. I only provide cosmetic dentistry for those over 18 years of age unless there are certain exceptional circumstances.
HOW SOON CAN I START TREATMENT?
My appointment book is carefully managed meaning you will most likely be able to start treatment 1-2 weeks after your initial consultation.
