Appointment policy

If you would like to make an appointment please telephone the practice and we will be happy to arrange a convenient time for you.

To ensure the smooth running of the appointment system you must give at least 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel an appointment. Our practice policy is that if, on more than one occasion, a patent cancels with less than 24 hours notice or fails to attend an appointment without good reason, then we may no longer be able to offer NHS treatment. We will of course take any special circumstances into account. For private appointments a fee may apply.

Patients who are violent or abusive to practice personnel, to other patients or anyone else on the practice premises will be refused treatment and reported to the appropriate authorities.

Methods of payment

We accept the following methods of payment at the practice: cash, cheque and all major credit and debit cards.
We kindly ask that patients settle their bill at the end of each appointment.

Recalls and reminders

At the end of a course of treatment, your dentist will discuss with you when you need to visit a dentist again. NHS dentists now follow guidelines issued by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence. This means you will attend as often as needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy and this period may vary from three to twelve months. Please let us know if your contact details or medical history has changed since your last visit. Whilst the practice will send out recall and appointment reminders using text and email (with the patient’s consent), it is still the patient’s responsibility that they make their appointment and attend for their recommended recall visit.

Patient feedback and satisfaction

We aim to involve our patients in all that we do, involving you in both how we deliver services and in decisions about your own treatment and oral health.

You can make your views known by using one of the suggestion slips on our Feedback Station in reception. We also conduct regular Patient Satisfaction Questionnaires. We act on all feedback received and ensure that patients are aware of changes made as a result of recent suggestions by displaying Patient Feedback Bulletins on our Feedback Station. For more serious matters you are able to express your concerns using the Practice Complaints Procedure.

We aim to provide high quality patient care and want your experience at the practice to be as comfortable and stress free as possible. However, if you have not been completely satisfied or wish to make a complaint, please contact our practice Complaints Manager, Lucy Thomas on 01792 873483, who will be able to assist you in resolving any difficulties encountered. For further information please ask at reception or see our practice website.
