In order to maintain your oral health at the highest possible level, your dentist and hygienist will advise when you should have your next examination. The time between check-ups can vary from three months to two years depending on how healthy your teeth and gums are and your risk of future problems.
In order to maintain the best possible oral health, your dentist and hygienist will advise you when to have your next examination. The time between check-ups can vary from three months to a year depending on various risk factors like how healthy your teeth and gums are, previous treatments and your particular vulnerability to either future problems or certain oral diseases.
We aim to see all patients on-time; however, sometimes a previous appointment may overrun and cause a delay. Whenever this happens we will endeavour to keep you informed of the waiting time.
As a courtesy to our patients our appointment booking system sends an automated SMS reminder message approximately 72 hours before an appointment is due. We are unable to accept any appointment adjustment or cancellation requests via SMS or email.
Should you need to cancel or adjust an appointment please call our reception team at least 48 hours in advance, so that we can offer the appointment to a patient on our waiting list. We reserve the right to charge for late cancellations or failed appointments.
If you have an emergency please call the practice as early as possible and we will endeavour to see you on the same day. Occasionally, due to reasons beyond our control, we may not be able to offer you an appointment straight away. If you need urgent treatment outside of normal surgery hours please call DentaLine on 016348 90300.
Paying for Your Dental Treatment
Your clinician will inform you of any dental charges and treatment estimates are available following a clinical exam. Payment is due on the day of your appointment with some treatments requiring a pre-payment at the time of booking which contributes towards your final bill. We accept all major credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express.
At EasySmile we take complaints very seriously and try to ensure all of our patients are pleased with the service and care they experience. We operate an internal complaints procedure and kindly ask anyone wishing to make a complaint to please put all details in writing to our Area Manageress, Mrs Helen Browne, who will ensure it is dealt with courteously and promptly. A copy of our complaints procedure is available at each practice Reception.
We aim to make your experience with us as pleasant as possible and value your opinion on all aspects of your visit. Please tell us how we did via a comment card available at Reception desk and place it in the suggestion box or by using our online feedback form.
Your dental records remain confidential and secure in accordance with the Data Protection Act; however, from time to time we may need to release these records to authorised governing bodies. For more information please see our leaflet “Keeping Your Records” available at each practice Reception.
