Patient consultations

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with a member of the practice team.  This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 15 minutes.  The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants.  The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.

Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation.  This includes a comprehensive oral examination, and results in the production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.  The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £140 including X-rays.
