After you have informed the receptionist of your arrival, you will be asked to wait in the appropriate waiting room before your treatment. A nurse/student will escort you to the treatment area and will normally remain present throughout your treatment. Most routine visits last around 30 minutes, although some procedures may take longer. If you need an X-ray or other tests your appointment may last for the whole morning or afternoon. Please bear this in mind when planning your visit. The clinician will explain what will be done and why it is necessary. If you feel unsure of anything, please ask.
As the Dental Hospital is a teaching hospital it is likely that students will be present during your treatment. You can inform the clinician if you do not want them to be present.
Consent may be required prior to treatment and you will be given more information at your appointment
