The Treatment Journey

At Greenside Dental Care, we know every patient's story is unique. Everybody's treatment journey will be different, depending on your individual requirements. However, you can rest assured that whether you come to us for a simple filling, for cosmetic dentistry, for oral surgery such as wisdom tooth removal, or for a full-mouth restoration using dental implants, you will receive the highest standards of care and professionalism at all times.

After your initial consultation with a dentist, they will let you know their findings and any treatment you require. You will be provided with a detailed treatment plan that is customised to suit your wants and needs, and which will include information about all required treatment, timescales and projected costs.

In most cases – unless your first appointment is with an emergency dentist – you will continue to see the same dentist for all treatment. Sometimes it is necessary to refer you to a colleague for certain treatments – Dr Chris Woods has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and dental implants, and carries out all of our implant surgery, whilst Andrew Pitt carries out our more complex endodontic (root canal) work. You may also be referred to our hygiene therapist or hygienist for professional tooth-cleaning, personalised home-care advice and help with treating and managing conditions such as gum disease or bad breath.

The whole team at Greenside Dental Care shares the same ethos of caring, professional and patient-centred dentistry, so you can be assured you will receive the same quality care whatever your requirements may be.

If you come to us first as an emergency patient, your dentist will focus on getting you out of pain in the first instance. You may need to return to our practice for follow-up treatment, and will be invited to register with us for future care.
