During your appointment

Please do not worry about the numbers of staff and the ‘dental language’ that may be used as a simplified summary will be presented to you. There will be time for you to let us know your views and discuss the possible treatment options. It is extremely important that we understand your views and know that you are happy to proceed with any treatment. If you require time to think about treatments available and, if necessary, discuss them with your family and friends then further appointments can be made for you. As part of the consultation process x-rays, impressions of your teeth and photographs may be taken.
