Patient consultations

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr Burns.  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 £90, including X-rays.  The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with the treatment.

  • Single tooth

Patient testimonials

"I now can totally enjoy all types of food/meals without worrying about whether I will be able to chew the food properly, I'm back to enjoying those lovely crispy apples again, so the implants have been a fantastic success.  
It really is great to look forward to a night out for a meal with friends, knowing that I can eat without having to "slip out" to fix my dentures.
My friends have even commented that  I smile a lot more now, obviously my confidence has been restored to its former level."

"I had two choices, wear a denture or invest in a implant. Philip Burns talked me through my options and, after consideration, I opted to go for the finished job of having an implant fitted.  Philip explained in great detail and helped me feel at ease as we went through step by step.  I now have a confident smile and no longer fret as I take customers out for lunch on whether my tooth will let me down or not.  A job well done in my opinion and worth every penny."
