If you have been prescribed blood thinning medicines, or your medicines have been changed please tell the dentist as soon as you arrive.

  • If you fail to attend an appointment 2 times in a row, all future appointments will be cancelled

The dental clinic is a dangerous place for children to be unsupervised

  • Children under 10 years must come with an adult or relative
