Tooth implant dentist St Ives, Penzance, Cornwall
Dr David Burgess
BDS DPDS MScConSed
David Burgess has been established in Carbis Bay since 1988 and started placing dental implants in 2000 after attending hands-on courses in Germany and London. He and his implant team are committed to continuing to further their knowledge and skills and regularly attend high quality courses and conferences. Many patients are offered treatment under sedation to improve their implant experience. David has a postgraduate diploma in conscious sedation and works closely with his qualified sedation nurse to provide high quality care with maximum patient comfort.
Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr David Burgess 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 £82 plus the cost of X-rays/CT scans. The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with the treatment.
