This list is set as a guide and may vary depending on complexity of each individual cost of treatment will be discussed and an itemisation and treatment plan will be given to the patient at the dental examination.

We believe strongly in the importance of preventative measures that will do much to reduce the incidence of gum disease and tooth decay. Much of this will involve attention to basic oral hygiene on the part of the individual. Good common-sense practices such as brushing/flossing and using a good mouthwash, particularly last thing at night, will pay real dividends if carried out regularly. Needless to say, any reduction in your sugar intake will also be an important contributory factor if you want to keep your smile looking at its very best. Dental treatment should of course be carried out by qualified practitioners, but dental care begins at home!

When you do need to come and see us, we hope that you will find us to be welcoming, friendly and thoroughly proficient in everything we do, for that is our intention. Providing a comprehensive service of the highest quality to all our clients – adults and children – is always uppermost in our aspirations.

Being registered with the General Dental Council means that we are under an obligation to fulfil certain mandatory steps relative to continual professional development. This is an annual process and ensures that our knowledge and proficiency are maintained. The benefits of that strong ethos are obviously passed on to the patient as they can in turn be confident that they are undergoing treatment in the hands of true professionals.

So do talk to us if there is anything at all that’s worrying you about your dental health. Maybe you’ve got an important date coming up soon, like a wedding, but might be feeling a bit embarrassed about being photographed (they always ask you to smile, don’t they?) if your pearly whites have gone a bit yellow with tobacco staining or you’ve got an unfortunate gap right towards the front. Perhaps you’ve neglected your teeth over a period of many years and feel a bit bashful or reluctant to come forward because you think your problems are too far gone and nothing can be done.

Don’t worry! We’re here to help, not to be judgmental. With modern dentistry and all its innovative techniques there is almost no situation that cannot be rectified in some way or another. Above all, if you’re experiencing pain, don’t suffer in silence. Left untreated, toothache caused by a decayed molar, or generalised pain manifesting as a result of receding gums, will only get worse. These days, a simple filling with a good, hard amalgam can be done in a matter of minutes, offering immediate release from the endless misery of nagging toothache that not only ruins your entire day but keeps you up half the night as well. And if it’s fear or apprehension that’s keeping you from seeking treatment, take it from us that modern dentistry has a range of strategies designed to deal with nervous patients, and we know and use them all: extremely effective local anaesthesia, sedation and, above all, a comforting and reassuring ‘bedside manner’.
