At Biggleswade Dental Centre we welcome new private dental patients, to book your 1st appointment please phone our friendly reception team on 01767 660555. We will do our best to offer you an appointment at the most convenient time for you. If you require emergency dental treatment, please contact reception as soon as possible. We will do everything we can to see you within the normal opening hours (Mon-Fri 8.30-5.30) on the same day to get you out of pain. If your emergency occurs outside normal practice hours, please telephone 07659879118.
When you come in for your 1st appointment, please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier so you can complete your medical history form. This will help our team to know about any conditions that may affect your treatment.
The dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and surrounding structures and will ask if there are any specific concerns such as toothache or bleeding gums that have brought you into the practice. They check any existing crowns, bridges dentures etc. to make sure they are still in prime condition and will take an x-ray as necessary. We also check for Oral Cancer as standard, as early detection is vital. If anything suspicious is found we will refer you to a hospital consultant.
Should we find you need treatment, we will provide you with a treatment plan including an outline of projected costs. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, we will find out your aesthetic concerns and needs and include these in your treatment plan.
