Here at Bamber Bridge Dental Care, we strive to help you have a pleasant experience from the moment you get in touch and throughout your dental journey with us.
Your first visit
So what should you expect on your first visit with us?
When you first contact our practice, our friendly reception team will take some key details to register you. They may enquire about your dental needs and other requirements, such as, locating the clinic or accessing the premises.
Things we need
On your first visit, you will be asked to provide information regarding your medical and dental status. The information enables us to tailor your appointments and treatments to your needs and keep you safe at all times.
We will need an up-to-date medical status and we record any changes on each visit such as whether you have seen your GP or been to the hospital since we last saw you, any new medications added or allergies that may have developed or been discovered. And any lifestyle changes such as smoking habits and alcohol consumption.
Meeting your dentist
You will be welcomed into one of our comfortable dental rooms by one of our caring and friendly dental assistants who will be looking after you, so please don’t hesitate to ask should you need anything. We know that most people are apprehensive about visiting the dentist and especially so when you meet a new dentist.
Your first visit is a chance for your dentist to get to know you, your anxieties, and any trouble you may be having with your teeth. It is also a great opportunity for you to ask us about how we can help achieve your desired smile wishes.
Your dentist will carry out a thorough and comprehensive dental examination. This will include an assessment of your jaw joints and muscles, an oral cancer screen of soft tissues inside the mouth, an essential gum health check together with a full assessment of your teeth, previous fillings and restorations.
We create a treatment plan for you
During the consultation, we will discuss our findings and your treatment options, so you can decide what is best for you. We treat every patient individually and therefore each treatment plan is bespoke to your smile goals and needs.
