At Langley Dental Practice all new patients will have a thorough dental examination. At this visit we will try to find out what problems you may be having and explore what solutions you are looking for. We also want to understand if you have any anxieties about dental treatment and will work with you to overcome those anxieties. Subject to availability we can offer examinations on the NHS. A private examination with us costs £50.
We will ask questions about your past dental experiences, good or bad. We will take a full medical history. This is very important because some tablets and medicines that you take may have an influence on your dental treatment. We will ask about your smoking and alcohol consumption and will always check your mouth for signs of mouth cancer.
