When you come to see us

Your first visit will be an initial consultation with Mark Howdle. Here he will discuss your concerns about your mouth and answer questions you may have. He will carry out an extensive examination of your mouth to give him an idea of your dental condition and take any appropriate radiographs. He will then discuss the treatment possibilities.

We will give you an extensive Medical History Form to complete and ask you to bring this along with you, so we can go through your medical history and discuss any issues which may affect your treatment.

Once a full examination has been completed we will provide you with a written Dental Report detailing the various options available to you and an estimate of the fees, including extended payment options.

Careful evaluation will enable us to prepare the optimum treatment plan for your mouth. Our aim will be to give you as much information as possible about the possibilities, the timings and cost of the various options that are appropriate to your treatment needs.

After your first appointment we can usually decide on the first steps in your treatment programme and we are happy to provide a written 'Dental Report' of the cost of your treatment at that stage.

If you have any particular problems, worries or questions please make a note of them so that we can deal with them whilst you are with us.
