Dental Consultation

The consultation is the necessary first meeting with our dental staff, in which they examine your oral condition, and make a treatment plan for you, outlining the treatments that the dentist recommends.

  • Get a treatment plan
  • Get a complete diagnosis of your oral cavity
  • Get to know your dentist
  • Get to ask whatever questions you would like

A dental consultation is a session with your dentist where any questions and concerns can be discussed. Without a consultation, any treatment is not further proceeded, this is because it serves as the basis through which the dentist sums up the issues regarding your teeth, what treatment needs to be done and the cost of it. This is written down in a treatment plan, so it is completely indispensable for the dentist and the patient.
It allows you to ask whatever questions you may have, allowing you to have the ability to refuse or accept treatments, and get all the information you need before proceeding.

dental consultation review Forest & Ray DentistWhy are dental consultations important?

As stated above, dental consultation exists to allow the patient to discuss existing concerns and get vital information about the treatment you are advised or will continue with. It allows you to make informed decisions about which treatments you are comfortable with. It also gives the dentist the opportunity to inform the patient why dental treatment is necessary. Consultation sessions are along with other treatments including hygiene treatment or oral cancer screenings. You are recommended to have a consultation or a dental check-up every six months.

What to expect at your dental consultation?

Your first consultation may last for a bit longer than average, which is around 45 minutes- During this time you will talk with your dentist, and they will ask you about your medical record. Be truthful! They will also examine your teeth and maybe even palpate the soft tissues of the mouth, to check that everything is in order, and to be able to set up a proper diagnosis. No treatment will commence though, unless otherwise discussed with your private London dentist.

Do I need to prepare?

Dental consultations are pain-free, and they do not involve any sort of dental treatment at the consultation itself, unless otherwise agreed upon with your dentist. However, don’t forget to brush thoroughly before going to your dentist, and avoid coffee, garlic, onions and other foul-smelling foods. This is just a courtesy issue, and will not affect your treatment, but going into a mouth that has just eaten is pretty nasty, even for a seasoned veteran. So please no food before the consultation, and make sure you rinse out your mouth with water before sitting down in the chair.

dental consultation review Forest & Ray DentistHow much does it cost?

If you are a walk-in, or are going to the clinic for the first time, then your consultation will have some kind of nominal fee, to pay for the fact that the dentist is staying there. Some dental treatments require special consultation, and these may be charged.

Orthodontic consultations are a little bit different, and entail higher fees, as a study model of your teeth needs to be made. Call and book an appointment today, get to know one of our dentists, and see why thousands of patients in London choose Forest and Ray dental practice.

The northern part of the borough is home to Kentish Town, Hampstead, and Hampstead Heath, which are less populous districts. Numerous parks and open areas may be found in the London Borough of Camden. City of Westminster (near Soho, London) and the City of London are the next-door boroughs, followed by Brent to the west of what was once Roman Watling Street (now the A5 Road), Barnet and Haringey to the north, and Islington to the east.
