We will do our best to provide you with the most convenient appointment time to suit your diary. We offer early morning and late night appointments with the ability to arrange your dental examination and hygiene appointment at the same time.
As a new patient you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire so that your dentist understands your health history prior to meeting you. This will be routinely reviewed to make sure we remain informed. At your first appointment your dentist will chat to you to find out about your oral health routine and how satisfied you are with your smile. After a thorough dental examination, including mouth cancer screening and x-rays if required, a treatment plan and estimate will be devised.
Your dentist will talk to you about preventative techniques to improve your oral health and help you reduce the need for any dental treatment in the future.
Here at Sandown Dental & Implant Clinic, Belfast, we pride ourselves on our reputation for providing outstanding dental care to patients of all ages. The practice is headed up by two of Northern Ireland's leading dentists, Patrick Rea and Janice Brown. We strongly believe in preventative dentistry and will never recommend treatments just for the sake of it.
As well as offering general dental treatment and helping you to understand how to improve the health of your mouth, we also understand that a healthy, attractive smile helps promote and sustain your sense of inner wellbeing and happiness. For this reason, our cosmetic treatments are designed to make you love your smile.
We welcome new patients for general and cosmetic dental treatment.
What will happen at my first appointment?
When you book your first appointment, we will send you out a welcome pack so you can get to know the practice. The pack includes a medical questionnaire, which we will ask you to complete and bring with you to your first appointment so we can understand your dental health needs.
We want you to feel relaxed and welcome as soon as you enter the practice, and we realise people can be nervous about visiting the dentist. That's why, before you even sit in the dentist's chair, you will meet the team and have an initial chat about your wants, needs and concerns. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have; it helps us to work together for the perfect smile.
Once we have done this, your dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, including a mouth cancer screening, and any x-rays and photographs necessary.
We will combine your aspirations for your smile with our findings, and create a personal treatment plan for either general or cosmetic work, including estimate costs and payment options. We will go through all the treatment options available to you in detail.
Because we know time is precious, we offer very convenient appointment times, including evenings and early mornings, so you can fit your appointments around your schedule. To book an initial consultation, contact the practice today on 028 9047 1070.
