Your First Appointment

Welcome!


Although we are not registering new NHS patients at the moment we are registering new Independent patients.

Please contact us or talk to Reception.

For all new patients, the first appointment is a time for us to get to know you, review your medical history, listen to any concerns you might have and any of your dental health goals.

Your First Appointment

Your appointment will include a dental exam. Depending on the outcome of your dental exam and x-rays, the dentist will create a dental treatment plan for you. 

Please alert the receptionist and dentist of any medical condition, e.g. diabetes, rheumatic fever, high/low blood pressure, artificial heart valves (pacemakers) or joints, etc. We also need to know if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication before dental cleanings (e.g. antibiotics).

Contact us today to book your appointment or for more information.

Please Note:

  • If you are unable to make it to your appointment, please call the office at least 48 hours before the appointment so we can offer your time to another patient. 01403 252646
  • A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.

COVID-19 Update

Worthing Road Dental Practice is open. However, we may prioritise the vulnerable or those with the most urgent need. Get in touch with the practice if you need any advice.

There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments. At WRDP we have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control.

If you are worried about your attendance, please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by the relevant authorities.

Before you arrive:

According to NHS England Standard Operating Procedures, all patients now have to complete a COVID-19 Health Screening form before arriving for every appointment. We will also ask you to update your medical history, personal details, complete an oral health survey, etc. Therefore, we will email or text you a link, where you can complete all the forms. No need to print or sent anything back to us, it is all electronically uploaded.

You must wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

We will continue to check your temperature and if this is above 37.8C, you will be advised to rebook your treatment and to follow government guidelines. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.

The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.

Stay safe and please contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards
