Information for patients

My treatment approach

Root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, becomes necessary when the innermost part of the tooth, referred to as the pulp, undergoes irreversible damage usually as a consequence of tooth decay (cavities), trauma, or damage during prior dental procedures (i.e. fillings or crowns). Rather than opting for tooth extraction, root canal treatment often is the preferable choice. Should you need expert endodontic guidance or counsel, your GDP (General Dental Practitioner) may choose to initiate a referral process, particularly if the treatment is complex. Alternatively, you may directly contact me for arranging a consultation. Importantly, your registration with your GDP will not be affected if you choose to have treatment with me. A comprehensive report of all findings and treatments provided will be sent to both you and your dentist. My main priority is that patients:

1. Feel completely at ease with the entirety of my services.
2. Understand the problem and alternative solutions.
3. Understand the various stages of the proposed treatment.
4. Are aware of costs/timeframes during the consultation process
5. Are encouraged to engage with me adressing any queries/concerns.
