We have two different types of consultations.

You will receive an expert advice about your treatment, optional treatment plans, costs and time-line. The full assessment can take up to 1 hour. The fee is £95.

Any standard examination is £55. A repeat examination is £30 and full assessment with a specialist is from £95. For further details and assistance on which type of consultation you should choose, please contact us today.

The refundable fee is of a small amount and ensures you have a secure appointment with the dentist. All of our dentists are in great demand and thus so their books get busy quickly.

ANXIOUS PATIENTS

We completely understand how much anxiety can deprive patients from improving their smile. We don’t take anxiety lightly and we have had a long experience with different levels of worry, stress and anxiety that some patients had experienced before coming to us. We are here to help you relax and improve your smile. Our qualified coordinators and specialists will ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during your treatment. If you experience any form of anxiety, please make sure you share that with us upon your first consultation. We can then discuss options and methods that calm you down. We always inform our patients for each step we are to undertake before and during their treatment. We use sedation if necessary. Our interiors are purposely designed to feel relaxing and welcoming, unlike a common dental office. A prime reason that elevates the stress in anxious patients is the reminder of common dental office whether via smells or surroundings. Besides as a bespoke clinic, each patient gets utmost care and service during and post treatment. That level of care puts patients at ease and often instead of anxiety, our patients enjoy the whole process.

Should you feel more comfortable under sedation, please speak to us to find out more details. We provide oral and intravenous sedation which will put you at relaxing state during your treatment.
