By knowing your medical history we are better able to assess your dental-care needs and recommend the best treatment for you.

Many diseases impact on your dental health, e.g. diabetes can increase the risk of periodontal (gum) disease.

So please don't be shy when it comes to telling us about your medical history. Details are held in the strictest confidence and cannot be divulged without your consent.

Remember: The more we know about you the better, which includes an understanding of your lifestyle - whether you smoke or take medications, for example.
