Welcoming new dental patients
At HRS Dental Care we make a point of helping our patients to feel happy and relaxed about visiting the dentist. Removing any fear of the unknown is an important part of this commitment – so here’s a guide to what you can expect when you come to see us here in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
1. Making your appointment
Simply fill in the online form or call our reception team on 0800 160 1979. We’ll arrange an appointment for you with our lead clinician Dr Neil Harris. Please note that part payment for the appointment will be taken over the phone at the time of booking as we find this helps to spread the cost. We’ll also pop a Welcome Pack in the post straight away.
2. Arriving at the practice
If you’re not sure where to find us, you’ll find a map in your Welcome Pack or in the Contact us section of this website. Alternatively, we’ll be pleased to give you directions by phone. We have plenty of parking in front of the practice. If you have any special requirements, please let us know when you book your appointment – we have disabled access and a surgery on the ground floor. Please arrive a few minutes early and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while you wait.
3. Initial consultation
Your initial consultation will take place with Dr Neil Harris and our Treatment Co-ordinator, Claire Constant. This appointment normally lasts about 45 minutes – during which time you’ll be able to listen to your choice of music!
4. Treatment Plan
Your dentist will assess your oral health and advise a Treatment Plan which may be as simple as a timeframe for your next routine check-up. If you need a course of treatment, or are interested in any cosmetic treatments, we’ll decide how this will be delivered. After your appointment our Treatment Co-ordinator will discuss the plan with you and answer any questions you may have. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss the different finance options which we offer you. This takes another 30 minutes or so, to make sure you have all the information you need.
We know you’ll want to think everything over before committing to any extensive treatment. Rest assured that we’ll work with you to find the right treatment option, so you can be certain that your mouth will be as healthy as possible with the least amount of dentistry possible.
If you decide you’re happy to go ahead with your Treatment Plan we’ll book all the necessary appointments with our clinical team. If you decide you’d like more time we’ll make sure you have all the information you need to go through at your leisure before talking to us again later.
Finally, we recognise that some people find dental treatment more stressful than others. If you’re one of these people we can offer you sedation treatment to help you relax during your treatment. If you think this would help please let us know.
