Welcome to Scandic Dental Care
At Scandic Dental Care, we believe in building long-term trusting relationships with your dentist and hygienist.
Once you have become a registered patient at Scandic Dental Care, we will try to ensure that you see the same dentist on each visit. However, if not possible for any reason, suitable alternative arrangements will be made for you to see someone else within the practice. Our objective is to make each your visit a positive experience and we are working very hard to provide a warm, friendly and caring environment for our patients.
We have ground floor facilities available. The car park is available for all our patients with disabled badge holders as a priority.
It is important for you to attend all of your scheduled appointments. Every patient has a responsibility to either keep their appointment or notify us in good time to cancel the booking. Please be mindful that we are a very busy practice and your appointment can be offered to another patient should you not be able to attend. Repeated failures to attend could result in being de-registered from the practice.
We try to accommodate the needs of those patients whose first language is not English. The languages spoken at Scandic Dental Care include English, Farsi, Finnish, French, Gujrati, Hindi, Portuguese, Punjabi, Swedish and Urdu.
We value your opinion: we appreciate patient feedback and use it to improve our quality of care.
We look forward to meeting you.
