Communication with the Dentist
When you visit us for your dental appointment, it is essential that you are happy to provide answers to the important questions the dentist asks you. This is vital in helping us to identify the right course of treatment for you, and ensuring your treatment is carried out safely and with the fullest consideration to both your oral health and your health in general.
All new patients will be asked to let us know about their medical history. It is important that we are made aware of any medical conditions you have, and also any medications/medicines you are taking.
The reason we need to be made aware of these things is because they are directly relevant to how we are able to carry out your treatments, and the plans we make to correct any dental problems you may be having.
In some cases, the dentist may need to contact your GP as a result of their findings during the examination process. Whenever this happens, you will be fully advised and all relevant information will be requested from you.
If you would like to know more, or if you would like to book an appointment at our practice, please do not hesitate to contact us.
