Visiting the dentist in Richmond for the first time
Getting used to a new dentist can take some time. When you visit the dentist in Richmond at Sheen Dental, we do all we can to speed up this process once you are registered with us. We know that you are more likely to visit us regularly if we make your experience swift, comfortable and practical.
Why do people change their dentist?
Some patients change their dentist simply because they have moved home or work and need to find a new practice that is convenient for them.
Some have had a negative experience at their previous dentist. If this is the case for you, we can talk through the problem with your previous care. This is a good way to ensure that the problem is not repeated and that your needs are met.
Finally, some patients want a treatment that may not be available at their regular dentist. In these case, they can either seek a suitable practice themselves or they may be referred by their current dentist with a view to returning to them after the procedure that they want is complete.
