A comfortable patient journey with our dentist
Heyford Smiles Dental Clinic works hard to produce the smiles that our name denotes, because every smiling face signifies a happy patient. We are a family run dentist in Upper Heyford and we are proud that we have been serving this community for the past fifteen years. Modern dentistry is all about ensuring that the patient’s experience is a pleasant journey leading to a happy and content outcome. Judging by the number of patients that regularly attend our surgery we are providing our patients with that level of experience.
New patients are welcome
We are happy to expand our patient numbers as a dentist in Upper Heyford and we believe that our new patient examination is a comprehensive introduction to how we operate. A new patient will need to book a forty minute appointment, because we want you to feel relaxed and unrushed. At this appointment we will take X-rays and digital photographs of your mouth including some smiling images. Expect us to conduct a thorough examination of your teeth when we will take note of their appearance, functionality and any restorative work that has been carried out. The health of your gums is extremely important, so we carry out an extensive assessment of your gums and may recommend that you attend a hygienist appointment. Your bite is important, as different bites exert pressure on different teeth, so we will record how and where your teeth meet. Part of your bite examination is how the external joints of your jaw are operating. Internal soft tissue will be carefully examined taking particular note of the state of your tongue, insides of your cheeks and your palate, for any signs of cancer. Your external tissue examination will include glands and lymph nodes surrounding your neck, as well as your lips, allowing us to identify any profile irregularities. Your diet, eating and drinking habits will be discussed and how your general health has been during the preceding years.
A relaxing dental experience
Whenever you arrive for an appointment at this dentist in Upper Heyford you will always receive a warm and friendly welcome as well as refreshments. In our modern surgery you can listen to music of your choice while you are being treated. At our clinic we go out of our way to help you stick to your dental regime by making every visit as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. To ensure that you are able to attend an appointment and that your work day is not affected we also offer Saturday appointments to fit in with your busy schedule.
Treatments for all your dental needs
Our practice offers general treatments including root canal therapy, extractions, fillings and emergency treatments. Our cosmetic dentistry includes teeth straightening using braces or aligners depending on your dental condition, porcelain veneers for cracked and chipped teeth and white fillings. We recommend that you allow us to whiten your teeth to ensure that the correct solution is used and that you do not suffer from burnt or damaged gums. Missing teeth can be a thing of the past and we can replace any lost teeth either with a bridge, denture, crown or dental implant to restore your radiant smile. Our knowledge and expertise is here waiting to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums.
