At Complete Dentistry we welcome new private dental patients. To book your first appointment, please telephone our friendly reception team on 01883 622222. We will do our best to offer you an appointment at the most convenient time to you.
Your first appointment
When you come in for your first appointment, please arrive a few minutes early so that you can complete a medical history review. This will help our dental team to know about any conditions that may affect your treatment. You will then be introduced to your dentist.
The dentist will initially ask you out about your previous dental experiences and dental wishes. The dentist will then carry out a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and surrounding structures, and will ask if there are any specific concerns such as toothache or bleeding gums that have brought you into the practice. They will check any existing crowns, bridges, dentures etc. to make sure they are still in prime condition, and will take photographs and x-rays as necessary. We also check for oral cancer as standard, as early detection is vital. If anything suspicious is found, we will refer you to a hospital consultant. Should we find you need treatment, we will provide you with a treatment plan, including an outline of estimated costs.
Emergency dental treatment
If you require emergency dental treatment, please contact reception as soon as possible. We will endeavour to see you within our normal opening hours (8am-4.30pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 11am-7.30pm on Tuesday) on the same day to get you out of pain. If your emergency occurs outside normal practice hours, please telephone 01883 622222 for advice.
