Here are some common questions which you might have about our practice.
What treatments do you carry out?
We carry out all kinds of procedures, from routine check ups to a wide range of cosmetic treatments and more complex treatments.
I am a student. Do I have to pay for my treatment?
If you are 18 years and in full time education and you live in Northern Ireland and have a NI medical card then you will not have to pay for your treatment, however if you are still a student when you turn 19 years of age you are no longer automatically entitled to free treatment. Therefore you have to apply for an exemption certificate called a HC 2 which is a full exemption or a HC3 which is a partial exemption. You can apply for these via a HC1 Form and it is means tested, so takes the household income into consideration. Forms are available from the Practice or your local Social Security Office. Please contact the Practice for further information.
How often should I have my teeth checked?
We recommend that you attend for a routine check up every six months. We encourage regular check ups as it allows us to identify problems before they become too serious.
What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you have a dental emergency please contact the Practice as early in the morning as you can and we will always endeavour to see our registered patients on the same day. If your emergency occurs out of Practice hours please telephone the Practice where an answer machine will provide you with full details of our emergency arrangements.
Do you have any payment plans?
We have several dental plans in place in the Practice for patients both from Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland.
