Frequently asked questions to a Dentist York

What will happen on my first appointment?

On your first appointment please try and arrive at least 15 minutes early. This will give you time to complete a medical history and past dental experience form. For the medical history form you will need to list any medications you are taking, so it is wise to bring a copy of your prescription. Arriving early also gives you a chance to relax in the waiting room which has a large selection of magazines and a television. The practice very rarely runs late so early arrival is appreciated.

On your firsts appointment the dentist will welcome you to the practice and carry out a thorough dental history and examination. After this has been carried out a diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed. Please feel free to ask questions or ask for clarification of anything you are not sure about. Most patients will be given a full estimate of the cost of treatments advised, if treatments are complex and the patient needs to consider the options a review appointment will be made.

Unless you are in pain no treatment will be carried out on the first appointment.

Will my dental records and x-rays be sent on from my old dentist?

Dental records and x-rays are not automatically sent from your old to you new dentist. Please contact you old dentist and ask if they will give you copies of your notes and x-rays and bring them to your first appointment. Your old dentist my charge you for these copies.

What should I do if I need to cancel my appointment?

Please give at least 24 hours notice of changes to your appointment day.

At what age should I start bringing my children to the dentist?

Children can come to the dentist from about 3mths of age upwards. This gives them a chance to get used to the sights and smells of the practice and for advice to be given. It is more relaxing for everyone if parents bring someone to look after young children in the waiting room when the parent is having an examination or treatment.
