Both the patient lounge and treatment areas are air conditioned, with a range of refreshments and regularly updated reading material provided.
The treatment room is equipped with an iPod with an extensive range of music. The practice is decorated to provide a calming ambiance, and our highly trained staff will put at ease any anxieties you may have.
If you are a nervous patient then talk to the team, they are here to alleviate your worries, and often talking through your fears will make you feel more relaxed. It is important that you can talk to your dentist openly and comfortably.
A full explanation of the procedures involved, something as simple as your dentist explaining how the procedure will be carried out step-by-step, with no technical jargon, or giving you the opportunity to ask questions, will relieve that fear of the unknown.
Try to be open and honest with your dentist if you feel embarrassed about the condition of your teeth or your lack of previous dental care.
We will tell you of any treatment needed in advance and provide you with a quote. Where possible we will provide you with information and costing of all treatment options available.
Once you have met the team, and received your estimate and treatment plan, we can then discuss the payment options available.
The practice is fitted with the latest sterilisation equipment to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.
