|Description:||Our practice aims to provide dental care of a consistent quality, for all patients. We have management systems to help us and which define each practice member's responsibilities when looking after you.
In proposing treatment we will take account of your own wishes. We will explain options, where appropriate, and costs, so that you can make an informed choice. We will always explain what we are doing.
We will do all we can to look after your general health. We will ask you about your general health, and about any medicines being taken. This helps us to treat you safely. We keep all information about you confidential.
Contamination control is also essential to the safety of our patients. Every practice member receives training in practice systems for contamination control.
At every check-up we examine not just your teeth but your whole mouth, inside and out. Your gums are systematically checked and monitored in your notes. We screen all patients for mouth cancer at routine check-ups. We ask patients about tobacco and alcohol use because they increase your oral cancer risk., lancashire|
