A. Yes, it doesn’t matter where you live. We have patients from the local area and all parts of Scotland who like to come to us for quality dental care and because they have felt relaxed in our surroundings and would like to continue having us look after their dental health.
A. Yes, we will take your finances and situation into account when you register with us. If you would like to apply for financial support please bring proof of your benefits and tax credits. We can also help women who are pregnant and mothers who have given birth during the last 12 months.
A. No, when you register with us we always start afresh. If you have had recent treatment and you feel it might be relevant you are welcome to bring the information with you or have it emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
We may take new digital x-rays of your teeth to help determine the best treatment plan for you.
A. Your NHS examination does not have a charge . If you require x-rays at that visit to help diagnosis there will be a small charge.
If you need to have treatment immediately then we wil require the account to be settled at the end of your visit.
Prior to any course of treatment we will discuss costs and options with you. If you need a course of treatments we will ask you to pay a proportion of the costs at the end of each visit . You will then be asked to pay the remainder when you complete the treatments.
If for any reason you cannot pay you need to tell us as soon as possible. We will not be able to finish your course of treatments if you fail to keep up with payments
A. Yes, we work closely with a highly reputable company called "Finance 4 Patients " to offer patients affordable dental treatment payment plans.
This is a very flexible way to spread the cost of your dental treatment . Contact us for more details.
A. At The Park Practice we will endeavour to send you a text to your mobile phone number 2 days before your scheduled appointment . As long as you let us know that you can’t make it at least 24 hours in advance, there will be no charge for missing an appointment. There are often patients needing appointments at short notice so we rely on consideration from those who can't make their scheduled time to give us advanced notice. This is very appraciated. Thank you.
