What can be done to help?
Firstly, don’t worry about coming to see us. We are a friendly bunch and all you will do at your first meeting with us is talk. If you let us, we will examine your mouth and take some x rays so that at least you can have an oral health assessment. We meet many people who unfortunately have had very bad experiences in a dental practice (mostly as young children), which have prevented them from returning to a dentist for many years. This combined with poor oral health can have a devastating effect on their quality of life.
