Patient consultations

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr Tant the implant dentist.  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 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 £260 including X-rays/CT scans.  The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with the treatment.

Patient testimonials

“It is now over a year since work on my implants was completed and I would like to tell you how pleased I am with the result.  The transformation is amazing, it has changed my life.  After struggling with my own teeth, the implants feel strong and totally secure.  I have great admiration for the expertise and skill with which you and Dr Norton carried out this work.”

“I am a very nervous patient.  Russell Tant and his team have been wonderful and totally supportive of my needs.  I am absolutely delighted with the outcome.  This has been life changing.  My confidence is back, I can eat foods I was unable to prior to my treatment and I feel years younger.  The overall result is stunning.  I would have no hesitation in recommending the Hertfordshire Centre for Dentistry.”
