Frequently Asked Questions

I am currently free of dental pain and infection.  Why do I need to keep attending regularly?

 

Your teeth are constantly under change throughout your life - and the same goes for all of your fillings, crowns and bridges.  Unfortunately, unlike most of the rest of your body, you are unable to see and feel potential dental problems developing.  That's where we come in - we are here to detect and treat problems when they arise, but also to PREVENT them from occurring in the first place.

 

Your dentist will set a recommended recall time tailored to your specific individual need.  This will provide you with the best set of circumstances to maintain a healthy mouth.

 

I have full sets of false teeth.  Is it still neccessary for me to attend?

 

Although you may not have teeth, your gums still go through many changes throughout your life.  It is important that your gums underneath your dentures are regularly checked by us so that potential problems can be identified and treated.

 

I have missed a number of appointments.  Will I lose my registration?

 

All patients are assessed on an individual basis.  However, please be aware of the following guidance regarding attendance:

 

FAILURE TO ATTEND TWO APPOINTMENTS WILL RESULT IN YOUR NAME BEING REMOVED FROM OUR NHS LIST.  THE SAME APPLIES TO APPOINTMENTS CANCELLED WITHOUT 24 HOURS NOTICE.

 

IF YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AS A NEW PATIENT AND FAIL TO ATTEND, THEN NO MORE APPOINTMENTS WILL BE OFFERED TO YOU.

 

Will I see the same dentist every time I visit the practice?

 

If you are an NHS patient, all checkups/urgent appointments will now be allocated with the FIRST AVAILABLE DENTIST.  Therefore, it will no longer be possible for you to see the same dentist.

 

Practice Plan patients will see their regular dentist (Dr Shore or Dr Azfar).

 

I am interested in being a private patient.

 

Please see our 'membership plans' section of the website.

News

We would like to remind our patients that although we do indeed offer a fantastic text message reminder service, we cannot always guarantee this service. The system we use to provide this service is automated, and as such may fail from time to time. We would therefore recommend that our patients make a note of their appointment time and date at the time of booking. Thank you
 

It's so lovely to see a returning nurse Kelly. She started her dental nursing with us in 1994. She then left us for 9 years. However its so lovely to have her back!

We would also like to welcome our new trainee nurses Molly & Anaiyah

 

A big well done to Areej, who has recently passed her exams and is now a fully qualified dental nurse.

In an effort to help reduce plastic waste we are now stocking interdental brushes with the bamboo handles.

A&S have been awarded the highest level (Step 3+) of this local award, which we have held since its inception. Briefly, this award recognises our commitment to preventative dental care; team training and advice on wider health issues such as smoking cessation advice.

As many may be aware, our dentists Paresh Parmar and Paresh Nakashree have set up in partnership together. We have two female dentists joining our team from May 2019 - Welcome to Nafese Ahmed and Laura Ebbage.

We were pleased to help Public Health England with a recent study of adult oral health. Which is vital for the planning of health improvement programmes and dental surveys. Thank you to all of the patients who took part in this survey.

Congratulations to Sarah - Jayne and Charlotte who have both recently passed their exams and are now fully qualified Dental Nurses
