    Making an Appointment

    If you ask us for an appointment, we will try to offer you one as soon as possible at a convenient time. You can make an appointment by calling 01652 653163 - see our opening times for details of practice opening hours.

    You can choose to see which dentist you would like to see at the practice including your regular dentist but please note this will depend on the appointments available.

    Reminders and Recalls

    At the end of your treatment your dentist will discuss with you when you will need to see a dentist again. NHS dentists now follow guidelines issued by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). This means that you will attend as often as needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy and may no longer need a check up every six months.

    Patients who provide us with their mobile number or email will receive reminders when their check up is due asking them to book an appointment. Texts are also sent as a reminder of the date and time of a booked appointment. Any patients who do not want to receive text reminders should inform us and this will be noted on their records.

    Cancellations

    If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible so that we may offer your appointment to someone else.

    Missed appointments waste NHS time - if you miss more than three appointments and give less than 24 hours notice, we may not be able to complete your treatment or offer you NHS care in the future.
