New Patient Examination


We would like to welcome all new patients for an initial consultation.

The first visit to a new a dentist is important for both patient and dentist. We allow enough time to discuss your previous dental history and any concerns or apprehensions that you may have. We also offer a full scientific examination process by means of the Denplan Oral Health Score.

The consultation will take 30-45 minutes and will include:

  • Taking a full detailed medical and dental history.
  • Checking your teeth and gums and recording information about them on our computer systems.
  • Checking the function of your jaw joint.
  • A visual examination of your mouth as part of oral-cancer screening and checking lymph nodes.
  • Any necessary x-rays (free of charge).
  • Discussion of your oral hygiene routine.
  • Discussion of the proposed treatment (if any) and the formulation of a treatment plan.
  • Providing an itemised estimate of the cost of your planned treatment and a schedule of works which will enable you to plan the timing of your treatment.

The cost of the full consultation is £80 (or £50 if you are a transferring Denplan patient).

We encourage you to visit the practice regularly and book your next appointment before you leave.
