I do feel that the team are aware of my anxieties and do their best to reduce them, which I am grateful for! I Like My Smile Dental Group is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its patients and staff. We follow all the recommended advice and policies that relate to social distancing, self isolation and cross infection control. At the moment we are open to see existing patients who do not show signs of raised temperature for new persistent cough and with urgent and emergency dental problems.
Alistair, originally from Salisbury, Wiltshire, qualified in 1991 from Newcastle University. He has been the main dentist here since 1995, and became the practice owner in 1997. He usually sees patients on a private basis and is happy to receive patients on referral for endodontic and sedation treatments. Outside of the practice Alistair is a member of the National Examining Board of Dental Nurses and works for two weeks each year for the Mercy Ships in west Africa. Many of our dental nurses undergo intensive one to one training with Alistair so don't be surprised if you hear them getting a bit of a grilling.
As many of you know there is a national shortage of dentists but we are pleased to announce that we have new dentists in both practices who are willing to accept patients for NHS treatment. Please give us a ring to find out if we can offer you NHS treatment.
The most important thing we can do on your first visit is to listen to you. We will ask you to tell us how you feel about your teeth and your dentistry. If you are worried about anything or anxious about your treatment now is the time to tell us. We will ask you to fill in a confidential medical history questionnaire, so if you are taking any medication please bring the details with you. When we know how we can help you we will carry out an examination, possibly take some X-rays, and discuss your treatment options and benefits.
I am very happy with my dental practice. I have not been at this practice very long, but would not change as I think from the moment you walk in the door you are made so welcome and put at ease. We will always discuss and agree with you your treatment plan before we start. This will include a print out of the costs involved. If your treatment plan changes we will talk this, and any financial implications, over with you. We are happy to take payment by cash or credit and debit cards.
