Appointments and Cancellation Notice
1. We respectfully request that you arrive in good time for your appointment. If you are late we may need to shorten your appointment time or rearrange it.
2. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation of routine dental appointments and 48 hours for dental treatment and hygiene appointments. Where a late cancellation is made, such as on the morning of the appointment, you become liable for a charge equal to the cost of the appointment.
3. Where an appointment is not met and no notice is given you become liable for a charge equal to the cost of the appointment.
Fees and Payments
4. We aim to provide every patient with a detailed breakdown of their treatment costs as an estimate before booking an appointment. If you receive care under the NHS please refer to our reception poster, ‘How much will I pay for NHS dental treatment’.
5. Should you join our MembershipPlan, the first consultation appointment is not included in the plan cost.
6. If you join our Membership Plan and wish to cancel the plan, we will require 3 months notice. You will be entitled to use any remaining appointments which are calculated, pro rata, to your annual entitlement and usage on the date of cancellation. If you have contributed less than the cost of any dental examinations or hygienist visits already received, we will require either the remaining sum to be paid, or the appropriate number of monthly payments to be made before cancelling the direct debit. Where a direct debit is cancelled and an outstanding amount for treatment received has not been paid we will send out an account requesting payment.
7. Some dental treatment comes with a guarantee. Please discuss this further with your dentist prior to treatment.
