Answering questions recently put to us by a patient from Rawreth, a local village.
We recently received an email from a patient in nearby Rawreth who has moved to the area and was sending out a questionnaire to local dental practices before deciding where to register.
We thought it would be worth reproducing our answers here for the benefit of any new patients in a similar situation.
Q. Where are you located and how far is it from Rawreth?
We are actually situated in Wickford which is a short journey of approximately 4 miles and we have our own on site parking for patients. It is also easily accessible by public transport.
Q. Are you currently taking on new patients?
Yes, we are always happy to see both private and NHS patients at the Cygnet Dental Practice, and we are sure that you will find us to be both welcoming and efficient
Q. Other than general dental care, what treatments do you offer?
We do offer general dental care and this is essential for anyone wishing to have healthy teeth and gums. We have a team of highly skilled dentists and dental hygienists to help you maintain excellent oral health. In addition to this, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures to help you have great looking teeth too. These include not only the ever popular teeth whitening, but also dental implants, veneers and modern dental braces which are very discreet.
Q. How long would I have to wait for an emergency appointment, should the need arise?
We always do our best to see any patient needing emergency dental treatment on the same day. This will depend on the time that they call however, and we always recommend that patients call us as soon as they can and don’t put it off.
Q. I always felt, at my previous dentists, that they couldn’t wait to get patients out as soon as possible, and whilst I was happy with their treatment, their approach seemed a little impersonal. Would I find that with your practice?
No, our staff value all of our patients and will take the time to make sure that you feel comfortable and that you understand any aspect of the treatments we recommend. We are sure that you will find our dental team to be excellent at their job, performing it in a relaxed and friendly manner.
Q. If I choose to register with you, how do I start?
You will first of all need to arrange a check up with us and sign any relevant paperwork before we can perform any treatment which may be required. It is easy to make an appointment at our Wickford practice and the friendly Cygnet Dental team can be contacted by calling us on 01268 733078.
We are always happy to answer any enquiries, whether general or specific, from patients from surrounding villages such as Rawreth. Our practice is easy to reach and we are sure that you will find us to be both professional and welcoming to patients old and new. We look forward to seeing you!
