Your first visit

We want your first visit to make a good impression!

Your first appointment is an assessment visit  during which your dentist will thoroughly check your teeth and gums. They may take x-rays if needed, to help them assess your oral health.


If any treatment is needed, your dentist will talk through the options with you in advance. 


Treatment will not be carried out at your first visit.


Payment is due at the time of treatment. We accept payment by cash or debit / credit cards.

Changing an appointment

Please give us as much notice as possible if you cannot attend a booked appointment.


We normally charge if you cancel or change an appointment with less than 48 hours' notice or if you do not attend.

Like many independent local businesses we rely on the income from our customers (patients) to pay wages and other bills.


When a patient does not attend their appointment, or turns up too late to be seen, we still have to cover our costs. 


We charge a fee to help cover these costs.


The fee is based on the length of the missed appointment.
