Smile with Pride Dental Care operates during the hours listed below. Please do not hesitate to contact our reception staff to register as a patient or if you have any questions that need answering on 020 8854 0726.
Please feel free to make your appointments at your convenience within our working hours. We will be flexible and accommodating.
Once your initial treatment is completed, we ask that you return for regular examinations at intervals determined on individual needs as agreed with you and recommended by NICE. These may range from 3 to 24 months.
In return, we ask that all patients attend on time. Patients failing to attend scheduled appointments, arriving late or cancelling without 24 hours notice all are responsible for a waste of precious surgery time. Whilst we appreciate that unforeseen events do occur,any patient responsible for the loss of two appointments will, without exception,have their care discontinued immediately.
We send out regular reminders by mail or automated text messaging to all patients who request these. Don’t forget to ask should you wish to use this service.
If you feel you have any useful comments or advice for us, we would be pleased to hear from you. Please address them directly to any Team member or use the Comments Card placed in the Waiting or Reception areas.
