Appointments We do ask that patients arrive a few minutes before their appointment time. We will make every effort to see you on time. If you find that you are unable to attend your appointment we would appreciate at least 24 hours notice. This will allow us to offer your appointment to another patient, who could be in pain! There may be a charge for a failed appointment. Urgent Treatment Patients requiring urgent treatment during normal hours will be seen as soon as possible. Outside normal surgery hours an answerphone will inform you how to contact the dentist on-call, so arrangements for out of hours treatment can be made. This service is available to registered patients only. All patients, even out of hours, are seen at the practice and not delegated to an anonymous service. We aim to see patients in pain on the same day you call. Parking There is a car park at the rear of the building off Belvedere Road for patients while attending the practice. Disabled Access We have access for disabled patients and offer appointments on the groundfloor for those unable to climb stairs.

Our aim is to react to complaints in the way in which we would want our complaint about a service to be handled.
