Your first appointment
To arrange your first appointment simply call our dental reception on 01935 817827, where a member of our team will arrange a convenient appointment time for you. We will also confirm your name, address and contact details so that we can register you as a patient prior to your first visit.
Before your appointment
It’s a good idea to arrive 10 minutes before your appointment, as you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire so that your dentist understands more about your individual medical history and any past dental work you may have had. Please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking so that your dentist is aware of these.
Meeting your dentist
At the Sherborne Dental Centre we make sure all our patients feel welcome. Your dental nurse will come and meet you from the waiting room and escort you to your dentist’s surgery where you’ll be introduced to your dentist.
Your dentist will discuss any concerns and requirements you may have before completing a full dental examination of your mouth. In order to thoroughly assess your oral health; any necessary x-rays will be taken. From these your dentist can discuss a personal dental care plan and recommend any required treatments. After your appointment our reception staff will book any appropriate appointments.
