Becoming registered with a dentist in Strood


It is an unfortunate fact that there is a large number of adults living in the United Kingdom who are not registered with a dental practice, if this is true of you then you should be aware that you may not be enjoying the best possible oral health for you. We have no doubt that you will be cleaning your teeth twice a day as recommended by all dental professionals, but this alone may not be enough to ensure that your teeth and gums are cared for to the highest possible standard; we all can benefit from the help and guidance of a dental professional.

If you are not registered with a dentist in Strood, then you should be aware that you may be doing a disservice to your oral health and hygiene; you are not allowing your standards of oral hygiene to be monitored and for action to be taken when required. Without being registered to a dentist, you may cause delay to a diagnosis during emergency treatments, and possibly delay the delivery of any treatment needed.

At LLB Dental Clinic we want to ensure that every adult in the community we serve completely understands the need and benefit of being registered with a local dental practice, this will then allow them to make an informed choice about whether to register with a clinic or not.

The registration process

If you are not registered with a dentist in Strood but wish to improve your oral health standards, then you should begin by giving the dental practice a call to express your wish to register. The reception staff will be able to begin the registration process for you by taking down your basic details and booking your initial appointment. This initial appointment involves undertaking an introductory oral health checkup where your teeth and gums are fully examined.

When you come along to our practice for your first appointment to have your teeth and gums examined by one of our dental professionals, it is important that you take the time to allow this examination to be carried out fully. Therefore, this appointment may last 30-40 minutes as your mouth will have been fully checked, including undertaking a screening for oral cancer.

During your appointment, you should feel that your voice can be heard; we find that when a patient is allowed to raise any concerns they may have, then we are able to target our work and treatment in ways that best fit the individual needs of the patient. Throughout your oral health journey with any dental practice, you should feel that you can make your voice heard by asking questions about any treatment that is being recommended to you, in addition to raising any concerns you may have about your oral health and hygiene.
