New Dental Patients

I would like to take the opportunity to personally welcome you to Lighthouse Dental Practice and thank you for placing your trust in us to help you to achieve and maintain your oral health expectations.

Our aim is to deliver every patient of the practice quality bespoke treatment in a caring and professional way. We strive for excellence in dentistry with a dedication to personal service.

To book an appointment, call us on 01473 257 379 or request a call back using our form.

The consultation may take up to 1 hour, so make sure you have set aside enough time.

It includes:

  • Taking a full detailed medical and dental history.
  • Checking your teeth and gums.
  • Checking the function of your jaw joint.
  • A visual examination of your mouth as part of oral cancer; we examine your lips, tongue, throat, cheeks and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Any necessary X-rays: radiographs can be important in the detection of decay, tumours, cysts, and bone levels and assessment of existing restorations and tooth anatomy.
  • Discussion of your oral hygiene routine.
  • Your dentist will discuss with you his /her findings and your dental treatment options so you can decide if you would like to join one of our membership plans or be seen on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.
  • We will provide you with a written treatment plan, which normally includes a visit to our dental hygienist.
  • You will have the opportunity to discuss your options with our dental treatment coordinator Hannah Waller.

After the appointment, we can then book your next check-up. Depending on your needs, check-ups are recommended every 6 to 12 months. We recommend a minimum check-up of 12 months.
