At Glow Dental we welcome new patients of all ages from Battersea and beyond, for both cosmetic and general dentistry.
We believe that there is an art to matching patients and dentists. When you call to make your first appointment, our receptionists will have an in-depth conversation with you to find out what you want to achieve and what your expectations are. We also want to find out what triggered you to make that first appointment, so that we can match your needs and personality with one of our dentists.
Once we have confirmed your appointment time, we will send you a medical history questionnaire, which we ask you to complete and bring with you to your first appointment.
Everything you tell us on the phone and in your questionnaire will be communicated to your dentist so that they will have a good idea of your wants, needs and concerns when they first meet you. You can also ask your dentist any further questions you may have thought of.
Initial new patient appointments last 45-60 minutes and include a thorough examination of jaw joints, teeth gums and soft tissues as well as oral cancer screening, photographs and x-rays may be taken as required. Your dentist will explain any findings and present any evidence of treatment required, as well as explaining all of your options.
In most cases we will provide you with a treatment plan on the same day, although in complex cases this may be at a later appointment. Your treatment plan will include all options and an outline of fees, including how many appointments you will need, what will happen at them and what the cost will be, enabling you to make an informed decision. This ensures that treatment can be planned to have minimal impact on your day-to-day life, and avoids any surprises along the way.
We believe your initial appointment is the first building block in a long-term relationship, giving you a healthy mouth and the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
