Welcome to Drayton Dental Care

As a new patient, you will be warmly welcomed by a member of our team who will ask you to complete a medical form and provide details of your dental history. If you are nervous, please tell us as we can help.

Your first appointment will last around 30 minutes and provides a thorough review of your dental wellbeing. We aim to provide a service and relationship that our patients can trust and continue with throughout their lives. By working together we will help you to smile with confidence, have fresher breath and enjoy good general health and wellbeing.

I've been a patient in several dental surgeries and Drayton's team definitely stands out.

Your new patient examination

Here is an overview of what we look to cover during your first examination appointment:

  • 1.

    Your general health, wellbeing and medication will be discussed and the impact on your oral health and treatments considered

  • 2.

    Your teeth will be examined for decay, sensitivity, fractures and abnormal wear

  • 3.

    Restorations such as fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges and dentures will be examined to ensure they are still sound

  • 4.

    Any gum inflammation, bleeding, gum disease, plaque retentive factors and recession will be assessed

  • 5.

    Your bite will be assessed, because the way that your teeth meet can affect your jaw, teeth and any dental work present in your mouth

  • 6.

    We will look at the inside of your mouth (tongue, cheek, palate etc) which can be affected by health conditions including mouth cancer, reactions to medications and diseases affecting the immune system

  • 7.

    We usually recommend a hygiene clean and polish and oral hygiene assessment

  • 8.

    Following this comprehensive examination, advice will be given and any appropriate treatment tailored to your individual needs and wishes

Your long-term dental wellbeing

After your new patient examination, your dentist will discuss the findings with you. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss any cosmetic smile goals you may have.

We will create a bespoke treatment plan for you, outlining the alternative options, including all the benefits and risks of each procedure and the cost. This will allow you to decide what is best for your long-term dental health and help you decide a plan for the best way forward.

Share your smile goals

Many of us have things about our smile that we’d like to change – even our dental team do! Whether you’d like a straighter smile, whiter teeth, or a more ‘perfected’ look, we’ve got the treatments to help.

At your new patient appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss all the things you like – and dislike – about your smile. Your dentist will be able to provide an overview of the treatments that you might like to consider and will suggest booking a free cosmetic consultation.

At Drayton Dental Care, we are passionate about healthy smiles, so we will always work with you to achieve optimum oral health before moving on to any cosmetic work. We see this as a fundamental part of your smile journey, because excellent dental health is the perfect foundation for a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
