Adult patients must initially attend a triage appointment where your dental needs will be assessed by a Dentist to see if you are suitable for student treatment. At the triage appointment you will be asked to complete a medical history form and a data sharing agreement. At the end of the triage appointment you will be informed if you have been accepted or not and if you are accepted we will either book you an examination appointment with a student, or you will be given an approximate timeframe for when you will be contacted to book your examination appointment. You will not be under our care until the point that you have attended your examination appointment. Adult patients are provided with one course of treatment and are then discharged, we recommend that you seek an alternative care provider whilst you are still a patient with us so that you do not have a lengthy break between care provision.
We accept paediatric patients between the ages of 1 and 13 and we do not Triage these patients. We run regular paediatric clinics in each of our four sites where we aim to create a child-friendly atmosphere to encourage children to become confident in visiting the Dentist.
We provide regular dental recall examinations for children and keep them in our system until their 16th birthday. We recommend that you seek an alternative care provider whilst your child children is still a patient with us so that there isn’t a lengthy break between care provision.
