We want the best for your teeth. That's why we've put together some information about your visit to our clinic, preventative care and other dentistry issues.
Don't forget: bring your medical card
To ensure your visit to our practice goes smoothly, please bring your medical card and photographic ID to your first appointment. This will enable us to register you as an NHS patient.
Patients who pay for their dental treatment are asked to bring a £30 deposit for their first visit to cover cost of examination, initial Xrays and cleaning if necessary.
Patients who are exempt from NHS charges include: children under 18, young people aged 18 in full time education, pregnant and nursing mothers and those in receipt of certain benefits e.g income support, working families tax credit. If you are unsure if you are eligible to claim exemption please telephone the practice.
It is a legal requirement of the health board that evidence of exemption is produced therefore please bring along any documentation to support your claim.
Preventative care: check-up at least once a year
You should come for a check-up at least once a year to make sure that you are looking after your teeth properly and to have their condition checked. If you have sensitive teeth, it would be a good idea to have a check-up every six months.
Our tip: ask our advice and make your next appointment at the end of each visit.
