Following a referral to the department
Following a referral from a Health Care Professional, you will be given an appointment for a New Patient Assessment. At this visit you will meet with our team, who will then carry out an assessment and formulate a treatment plan.
Within your assessment appointment, it may be necessary to take some radiographs (x-rays) to assist us in assessing what treatment needs carrying out. This may be done either in the department or within the Radiology department, which is a short walk from the Dental Department.
