Your First Appointment
New patients of all ages are welcome at Park Lane Dental for general, restorative and cosmetic dental treatment. We accept both NHS and private dental patients. To book your first appointment, call our friendly reception staff on 020 8688 8877, or complete our online form.
When you come in for your first appointment, please try to arrive about 15 minutes early, so that you can complete a medical history form, available from reception. This means that our dentists and other staff will be aware of any conditions that may affect your treatment, and also enables us to know a little about your dental health concerns.
Once you've completed your form, one of our reception team will register you and enter your details on to our system. You will then be taken to meet your dentist.
All of our dental team are highly experienced and committed to providing the best patient care. After establishing what has brought you to the practice, your dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and surrounding structures, including checking for oral cancer as standard. If anything suspicious is detected, we will refer you to a hospital consultant for further investigation.
Your dentist will also take photographs and x-rays as necessary to aid with diagnosis, because some sings of decay can initially be hard to spot on the surface of the tooth, particularly if you have had previous treatment with dental crowns.
At the end of your examination your dentist will present their findings, and will provide you with a treatment plan, including estimated costs for both NHS and private treatments. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, any required or desired treatments will also be outlined in your treatment plan.
