New Patient Examination
Like any patient, as a new patient at Cherwell Heights you’ll find we make time for you. Give our reception team a call and arrange a time to suit you.
We’ll book your first assessment appointment: a New Patient Examination.
Special Offer: while there is a charge for the first assessment appointment, we are offering new patients a 35% discount off the fee. This includes x-rays.
When you come for a new patient assessment here’s what will happen:
- We will ask you to complete our Confidential Medical History Form. Please remember to bring in a list of any medication that you are taking.
- We will then invite you into one of our modern treatment rooms for a relaxed chat with your dentist. They will be interested to find out about any treatment you have had previously and if there are any particular concerns that you have with your teeth. Remember, we are specialist in helping people with dental phobia. While we restore teeth, we also want to restore patient’s faith in dentistry.
- Your dentist will then complete a thorough examination during which they will look at the teeth, gums, and check the jaw joints. A simple oral cancer screen will be completed by checking and feeling the soft tissues inside & outside the mouth. Low dose digital x-rays may then be taken together with photographs depending on your particular situation.
- Your dentist will then clearly explain any findings and give recommendations for treatment. All options will be discussed to allow you to make an appropriate informed choice. We will provide you with a clear detailed treatment plan and a written estimate of treatment costs and you will be given the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Some people require very little in the way of restorative treatment. If so, we will recommend an appropriate preventive programme for you straight away. It may be that you are totally happy with your smile and are just looking for a friendly dental team to help you look after and maintain it – and that’s okay, we can do that too!
If more complex treatment is required, your dentist may wish spend a longer time talking through options with you and we may ask you to return for a second visit for this at no extra charge.
The initial consultation normally takes 30 minutes to complete after which our reception team will look after scheduling appointments for you and answer any questions.
So, if you are new to the area, want to change your dental practice, or are in any way anxious – you are very welcome to come on in and talk to us. Call 01295 709 500 – we are here to help you.
