Dental care in retirement – Our Advice

OUR CARE Advice

No one enjoys having repeated fillings, extractions, etc. As you get older, you will notice that your dental health and condition will deteriorate.
It is our intention that you should be able to make your own decisions about the treatments available to solve your problem.

We want to offer you advice about dental health as you grow older.

Why Do People Get Dentures?

As we know, our dental hygiene starts to deteriorate as we get older. This is especially true for seniors.

 

Your Safety

All dentists policy is never to put any of their patients or staff at risk. They take utmost care to ensure all cross-infection procedures are carried out. All instruments sterilised, disposed of, or disinfected as appropriate.

All our equipment is serviced and replaced or repaired as per official guidelines.
generally, we also wear gloves, masks and glasses. all clinical staff have been vaccinated against hepatitis b.

We endeavour to keep radiographic examinations to a minimum. however, radiographs (X-rays) need to be taken at regular intervals to ensure any problems are identified early, the radiation levels are now so low that generally lead aprons are not worn, although we do have one on the premises if so needed.

All our records are computerised to allow us to be more efficient and accurate. We set a standard of total confidentiality and adhere to all data protection guidelines. Please help us to keep updated with new addresses, telephone numbers (at work and home), changes in medical histories and personnel circumstances.

Costs

We always want you to be informed and aware of the cost of any treatment you undergo, if we have not already volunteered the information please ask.
We all benefit from an appreciation of other patients needs within the practice we ask 24 hours notice in order that we might reallocate the surgery time to another patient a charge may be made for surgery time if 24 hours notice is not given.
