At 108 Dental new patients can expect a very warm and friendly welcome..
Arriving at the surgery for your appointment, you will meet our gentle and helpful reception staff, who will ensure you are well looked after and feel at ease. We are proud that our caring reception team have been looking after our patients for many years and it is a real pleasure for us when we see our long-standing patients bringing in their young children, or recommending their good friends and neighbours. We will ask you to complete an oral and medical history questionnaire, with your New Patient examination to follow.
One of our highly experienced dentists will then see you for your New Patient Examination.
During your visit our team will:
Ask you about any dental problems that you are currently experiencing and of any treatment that you have received previously. If you feel nervous visiting the dentist, please explain any particular nerves or trepidation you may have. Do not worry! Our dentists have over 50 years of clinical experience between them and your concerns and worries will be something that we are very used to solving.
Conduct a full dental examination to check on the health of your teeth, gums and supporting structures, jaw joints, muscles of mastication and soft tissues of the mouth and head and neck.
Take low radiation digital X-rays to check on all areas that are not seen on visual examination.
Frequently take a set of digital clinical photographs. These are extremely useful for communicating many dental issues that our patients may be suffering from. Also, these are used as an excellent record of how your teeth and oral health compare year-to-year.
Your dentist will then discuss any issues or problems that need either treating, protecting or monitoring. At 108 Dental we know that everyone is unique. For this reason we always give our patients a variety of good treatment options to cater for any person, lifestyle or budget.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, please ask our dentists about how this can be improved. You would be amazed how a smile can be transformed with non or minimally invasive, short time-frame treatments, such as whitening, composite bonding and short-term orthodontics.
