Some Crucial Aspects Related To Availing Private Dentistry Treatments

Are you scared of visiting a dentist for oral checkups? If you are then, you are not the only one. According to statistics, one out of every four adults in the UK literally freaks out when they have to visit a dental office. Dental treatments were severely hurtful since the long past. Thus, people deliberately avoid oral health checkups to save themselves from pain and torture. However, this ignorance resulting from the feeling of fear and anxiety takes a toll on one’s oral wellbeing. So, you should overcome this fear immediately and routinely visit your dental expert to ensure your teeth and the gums stay strong and healthy. Moreover, an increasing number of dentists are aware about their patients’ mental blockade and thus, they provide their treatments more gently and with greater consciousness.

Rise in private dentistry practices

Actually, choosing a perfect local private dentist can help you a lot in overcoming this mental roadblock. On the other hand, private dental practices are steadily growing across London. This development can be attributed to the following factors:

  • Interest in cosmetic dentistry has increased manifolds

  • NHS does not cover these treatments

Thus, an increasing number of patients are queuing up at private dental offices to avail their desired treatments. However, if you want to avail both NHS and private treatments from the same dentist, you should approach a professional who performs mixed practices. There are many such dental surgeons across the city that provides such combined services.

Charges for private dentistry

Before booking an appointment at any private dental office, you should be aware about the fact that there is no ceiling for charges with these professionals. They charge whatever they think fit for their service. However, most professionals quote a reasonable price for their service to facilitate treatments for a higher number of patients. However, how can you determine whether a dentist is quoting higher price for a treatment as compared to others? This turns out to be a serious concern in many cases and unfortunately, there is no way to determine this in the present scenario. The British Dental Health Foundation suggests, you should enquire about the particular treatment cost at several other dental practices to be sure about the inflated cost factor.

Moreover, as a patient, you deserve the right to get a thorough breakdown of your proposed treatment and its precise costing. You can also approach your dentist or the manager running the clinic to negotiate a lower fee for the treatment.

Emergency dental services

It is indeed a smart move to secure access to the best dentist for emergency situations. You never know when an emergency situation related to your oral health or for that your near and dear ones will come up. So, it is better to know the way to a clinic within the neighbourhood that provides emergency dental care on a 24/7 format.

At a private dental clinic, you will have to clear away the treatment cost whenever the expert will ask you to. Just make sure to clear out all doubts on this aspect before starting your treatment.



reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.

Look your best, feel your best, expect the best.
