The NHS provides all the treatment necessary to secure and maintain your dental health.

There are some treatments and options which are not available on the NHS and you may wish to have these provided independently. Your dentist will discuss these options with you so you can make an informed choice.

 

As a practice we are working with the NHS to try and improve oral health in Wales. 

We know prevention is better than cure so have changed some of the ways NHS dentistry is delivered.

We will spend more time talking about your Oral hygiene, Diet, Smoking habits and Alcohol intake.

We will be using a traffic light system to assess individual patients risks. 

We may ask to see you more often if you are higher risk or less often if you are lower risk.
