How to Register

Registerering as a patient at Smile

We are delighted that you have enquired about joining us, and hope to exceed your expectations of dental care.

What happens at my first visit?

Your first visit to us is usually a full assessment. This appointment is a crucial foundation to your care with us, and for this reason we would ask you to allow about an hour for it and arrive a few minutes earlier than your appointment time.

During this time: -

  • you will be asked to complete a few necessary forms
  • we will spend time listening to your queries and concerns and discuss some of the things that may affect your dental health
  • we will examine your mouth fully (including mouth cancer screening) and make various recordings to allow us to establish the baseline of your oral health
  • we may take some x-rays as needed
  • we will explain all our findings and discuss your future care

Should treatment be required, all options and costs will be openly discussed, and you will be given a computerised estimate and treatment plan. You will not be obliged to continue with us in any way if you are not happy at the end of this visit. If your treatment needs are particularly complex, we may ask you to attend a shorter second visit to plan things in more detail.

If you are particularly anxious about attending, we will be sympathetic and will take time to chat about your fears, and plan a way forward with you. In time, we have found people can overcome those fears and actually enjoy coming to see us.

All in all, we hope you leave your first visit feeling fully informed about your dental status and happy with our service.

If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to call our team who will be delighted to help.

I have a dentist already. Can I register to have some treatments that they do not offer?

For patients wishing to have some treatments that we offer at Smile that are not available to them from their current dentist e.g. tooth whitening, cosmetic treatments or dental implants, we request that in addition to completing the registration form, you ask your dentist for a letter of referral to us.

If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to call our team who will be delighted to help.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sharon, David & the team
