Payment

We accept cash, debit cards (NHS & private treatment), credit cards (private treatment) and bank/building society cheques. We no longer accept personal cheques.

Missed appointments

In order to maintain our standards during these times of increased financial pressure on the NHS we have to adopt a very firm policy regarding non-attendance as surgery time is lost and could have been filled by other attending patients who could have had their treatment sooner

“Failure to attend” means any of the following:

  • Not arriving for an appointment
  • Arriving too late for an appointment
  • Not giving enough notice of not being able to attend*

*We ask for at least 24 hours’ notice of cancellation for dental appointments and at least 48 hours’ notice for hygiene appointments.

NHS Appointments: We are not allowed to charge for NHS missed appointments and therefore if an NHS appointment is missed we reserve the right to cancel all remaining appointments without notification. If an appointment is missed and the practice is not contacted within 48hours afterwards we will terminate that NHS course of treatment and there may be additional NHS charges to recommence the treatment. Unfortunately if a patient repeatedly misses appointments we will reluctantly no longer be in a position to offer further NHS appointments .

Private Appointments: Hygienist appointments which are missed will be charged at the full hygienist appointment rate. Missed dentist appointments will be charged at a rate of up to 50% of the fee for that appointment.

In order to reduce the numbers of missed appointments we will email a confirmation of the appointment at time of booking and also send a reminder up to 1 week before. Many of our existing patients find this service very useful and it helps reduce the number of missed appointments which benefits everyone!

We are always delighted to welcome new patients
