The Practice


Your first appointment

On arrival

On arrival you will be welcomed by our friendly receptionist. You will be asked to complete a medical history form.

At your first dentist appointment

When it's time for you to see the dentist, you will be shown into the surgery and given time to settle down before your examination or treatment begins. You can rest assured that we use a range of state of the art equipment to enable us to diagnose and treat problems as easily as possible. We're also fully computerised which means that your records are always easily accessible by our dentist and staff.

Your first appointment will be with Mr Mehra this is an opportunity for you to get to know each other and talk through any issues or concerns that you may have. Then your mouth will be thoroughly examined; your teeth, gums, soft tissue, jaw joints, and occlusion (bite).  Normally we take digital X-rays as these show what can’t be seen directly – those areas between, inside and underneath your teeth, gums, and the bone supporting your teeth - and are often essential for diagnosing the causes of pain or discomfort. The dentist will talk to you about, and explain, treatment options and provide a written estimate. The dentist may also recommend that you see our Dental Hygienist to maintain your oral health.

At your first hygienist appointment

Our hygienist is registered and experienced dental care professional who has the responsibility of helping you keep your mouth in the best possible state of health. The gums and bone around your teeth are their foundations, and preventing and treating periodontal (gum) disease is of prime importance for a healthy, pain free mouth throughout life.

Your hygienist will carry out a thorough investigation of your gums to identify any areas where you may have, or could develop, gum disease. She will explain exactly what she finds and involve you in discovering the best ways for you to remove the damaging plaque from all the nooks and crannies where it collects, by tooth brushing, flossing, and other techniques.

She will carry out any necessary professional cleaning. If you have gum disease which is more advanced, then more than one visit may be necessary.

After your appointment

For your next appointment we'll arrange the best times to suit your diary.

We know that it’s easy to get out of the habit of seeing a dentist. So if it’s been a while, don’t worry, we are here to help.

We look forward to seeing you.
