Your First Visit to The Cambridge Emergency Dental Practice
We want you first visit, and every visit to be a great experience.
Most of our new patients come to us for a check up but some come to use our Emergency Dental Service.
On your first Visit we give you a practice leaflet and an explanation leaflet about your first visit (what will happen and the charges)
We ask you to fill in a confidential medical questionnaire and a consent form where you acknowledge that you will be treated as a private patient. If you want to Download and Complete the medical history and Dental Health History before you arrive (saves time!!) then please Download the medical History Form and Download the Dental Health History Form
You are then taken to a treatment room where the dentist and dental nurse introduce themselves. We take a dental history and carry out an examination and perhaps take a radiograph and sometimes use an intra oral camera.
We make use of the latest computer graphics and have a fantastic dental program which can illustrate treatment options. It can also help to how the various dental diseases like gum disease effect the tissues.
We then discuss with you our findings and discuss the various options for treatment, these are all documented on a written itemised treatment plan which patients can take home.
At all stages the patient in involved and we encourage them to ask as many questions as they wish.

Cancer ScreeningOral Cancer is very common and the number of cases is increasing all the time, especially among the 20 to 40 years old.
Our Screening takes 3 main parts
1. Discussion of the Risk Factors. For example Smoking (including some recreations drugs), alcohol and certain adult recreational habits.
2. A discussion about any untoward changes in and around the mouth and upper throat (swellings, ulcers, swallowing, patches .....)
3. Examination of soft and hard tissues. This included the part where we examine the tongue and back of the mouth. It can be a little uncomfortable but is an essential part of the examination as these are the two main sites for Mouth Cancers.0
All our dentists are trained to carry out a cancer Screen and we take this very seriously.
Last year (2013) we identified more cases that turned out to be possitive than we did in the previous 5 years.
