Your First Visit

Your first visit to Langmans Dental Health Centres is very important to us. It gives us the opportunity to get to know you and understand any concerns you may have, how you feel about your smile and any improvements you would like to make to your teeth.

Prior to your appointment we will ask you to complete a detailed Medical History Form and New Patient Questionnaire. This enables us to understand your current medical situation and provide you with the best possible service for your individual dental needs. You can download the forms by clicking on the links above, to complete and bring with you to your first appointment. If you prefer you can arrive 10-15 minutes early and complete the forms on the day but please ensure you bring with you a list of up to date medication.

Your First Visit

What Will My First Visit Include:

You will have a thorough examination which will include:

  • Discussing your medical history form & new patient questionnaire
  • Checking the health of your soft tissues
  • An oral cancer screening
  • Checking the function of your jaw joints
  • Checking and recording the gum health around each tooth
  • Examination of the teeth
  • Examination of existing fillings and other restorations

This first examination will usually include taking x-rays. This is because it is essential to know what is going on below the gum line and inside the teeth, the areas we cannot see. We use digital x-rays which ensure you are exposed to just a fraction of the radiation exposure that you would receive with traditional x-rays.

After this initial inspection we will advise you of your treatment needs and answer any questions you might have about this. The treatments we recommend are designed specifically around your needs and requirements and we will discuss options, associated fees and estimated treatment time for these.

To book your first appointment, or if you have any questions please give the practice you would like to attend a call and one of our receptionists will be delighted to assist you.


I would like to convey my thanks to Caroline, Sam, Chrissy and David for the implant work carried out this morning, Saturday 29th January at the Stratford dental health centre. It is very comforting to know, from a customer’s perspective, that one is surrounded by such a high level of expertise working together to ensure top quality treatment and satisfaction. I was also impressed by the fact a Practice Partner was present. Thank you all once again for your involvement.
