Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I need to register?

To ensure your registration goes smoothly, please bring your Health & Care Number (H&C No.) or your CHI Number. You can get either of these on your medical card or alternatively you can contact your GP for this information.  We will also need your contact details to complete registration, e.g. address, telephone number, D.O.B and a completed medical history form (forms will be provided or can be downloaded from this website in the New Patients section).

I’m currently on a Private dental plan – can I come back to the NHS?

Yes, every citizen of the UK is eligible for NHS dental care and we would be delighted if you want to become an NHS patient at our practice. You simply contact your plan provider to cancel the plan you have in place once you have had your new patient appointment and the NHS paperwork has been signed at that appointment.


How often should I get a check-up?

You should come for a dental check-up at least once a year to make sure that you are looking after your teeth properly and to have their condition checked. If you have sensitive teeth, it would be a good idea to have a check-up every six months.


Our tip: ask our advice and make your next appointment at the end of each visit.

Can I still get Private treatment while registered as an NHS patient?

Yes. You can avail of all of our services on an NHS basis, however, if you wish to you can also receive private fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures on a pay as you go arrangement.


You can also avail of our Denplan facilities.  With Denplan you can fix the cost of your dental treatment so that there are no unexpected bills.  Please ask one of our staff members for more details of our Denplan Essentials and Denplan Care packages.
