General Information

Your Dental Records
Your dental records will remain confidential and secure.
However from time to time we may need to release these to Notts & Derbyshire NHS England Area Team or the NHS Business Services Authority as part of our ongoing clinical review process. We will try to contact you before releasing your dental records to another organisation.

If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible (at least 24 hours beforehand) so that we can give the appointment to someone else. Missed appointments waste NHS time. If you miss two appointments, we may not be able to complete your treatment or offer you NHS care in the future.

Had problems at another dental practice where I was told I needed a root canal and crown costing over £1000. I was going to opt for an extraction instead but asked this dentist to have a look.
