Your First Appointment
At Foley Park Dental & Implant Centre we like to make things as easy as possible for new patients, and that starts with our location and hours.
Easy to find
We’re easily accessible, at 54 Connaught Road in suburban Kidderminster. Parking is never a problem, and we’re in the south-western part of town, so also handy to towns like Stourport and Bewdley.
Opening hours for busy people
We know it can be hard to make it to a dentist in normal work hours, so our times include some Saturdays and late finishes. We are also available for emergencies seven days a week. You can come in to see us and make an appointment, or contact us by phone or email.
From your very first visit you will get a warm welcome. We will also take the time to listen to you and answer your questions. We want to know exactly why you have come to us and what you would like, and it’s really important that we start getting to know you and you start getting to know us.
You will be given information about our services, from everyday dental procedures to our wide range of cosmetic treatments, as well as helpful information on fees, payment plans and insurance.
It’s what you want
Your time is important so we have a detailed check-list to ensure that nothing is overlooked as we find out what your concerns are, what you would like to improve, and what is the overall state of your oral health. Once we find out your current needs and dental history, you will receive a thorough oral examination, including any necessary photography and x-rays, and we will give you the results of that assessment immediately.
Together, we make a plan
We will discuss your options for treatment, taking financial considerations into account, and you will receive a printed treatment plan including estimates of costs. At the end of this first visit we usually arrange for a second appointment to begin the agreed treatment.
Dental pain – forget about it!
No one likes pain but the good news is that times have changed and there’s no reason why any dental procedure should be anything but a pleasant, comfortable experience. Not only that, we’ve cared for many nervous patients and understand that you don’t want to feel rushed or confused. Our staff will be more than happy to sit and have a chat with you. We pride ourselves on being friendly and empathetic and we love helping patients overcome their fears. We will assess your level of anxiety and tailor our procedures to best accommodate your needs.
If for any reason you are not ready to proceed, we won’t pressure you to make a quick decision. We will allow you time to discuss choices with members of your family or weigh up pros and cons of different methods and time frames. And if you are nervous about starting treatment, we are happy to work at a pace that you are comfortable with, allowing you to get to know us and feel at home in the practice. We want you to be happy and relaxed, whether you’re here for a filling or a fantastic smile makeover.
