Frequently asked questions
How can we help?
There are a few common dental emergencies that can occur. These include toothaches, chipped or cracked teeth, lost fillings, and gum injuries. If you have a toothache or other dental pain, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. Toothaches might start as a small problem, but they can quickly become a much more serious problem.
If you are in pain, have a tooth that is loose or broken, or have lost a filling, you may be experiencing a dental emergency. If you are not sure whether or not your situation is a dental emergency, it is always best to err on the side of caution and see a dentist right away.
Wherever possible, we will try to see you on the same day if you are experiencing a dental emergency. During your appointment, the dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to determine the best course of treatment. The focus of an emergency appointment is to stop your pain and prevent further damage. You may need to arrange a follow-up appointment to complete your treatment.
There are a few things you can do to help prevent dental emergencies. First, be sure to brush and floss your teeth every day. This will help remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Second, see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. This will help to prevent small issues from becoming more serious. Sometimes, a dental emergency occurs as a result of injury or trauma. In this case, there isn't much you can do to prevent it, but wearing appropriate protective equipment when taking part in sports and other leisure activities can help to protect your teeth and gums fro injury.
Hear from our happy patients
I am very nervous with Dentist but Dorsa made my visit very comfortable. Very highly recommended
Just had a fantastic craftsmanship done by Dorsa @Bhandal Dental practice on my front tooth. Excellent work and attitude. I get overly nervous at dentists. But i think this was the first time ever I actually got calmed down and did not rip the arms of the chair. Thank you, Dorsa, much appreciated.
Dorsa was fabulous, due to poor experiences with a different surgery in the past, I am utterly terrified of the dentist. However Dorsa put me at ease and constantly checked how I was feeling, I underwent NHS and cosmetic treatment and the results brought on happy tears, my teeth have never looked or felt so good. Thank you for giving me my smile back.
My dentist was called dorsa today and she was amazing talked me through the whole Procedure and made me feel really calm x
Excellent dental work, as good as private. Good manner, quick, tender, relaxed. Very good. Thank you Dorsa, and Meera.
Don't usually see this dentist (Dorsa) My usual one Luckie was not available, I was having deep filling and she kept me at ease, explained everything she was doing and was so gentle that I didn't even feel the needle for when she froze my mouth. Would definitely want to see her again. Thank you.
It was a very good experience. The doctors were very nice and kept on asking me if i was okay.
Dorsa was really kind and nice. She explained everything to me really well as well giving me advice. I feel safe and comfortable. I would totally recommend her she's amazing 😊😊
I was so nervous and felt really anxious during my procedure today but Dorsa and her colleague ( sorry I should’ve asked your name ) were absolutely wonderful and were so patient with the patient:) I can highly recommend! Thanks again ladies!
Great service! All staff polite and friendly and my dentist Dorsa did amazing work on my teeth
I like to leave reviews, when I've had an excellent service.... the receptionists( Lisa and Rebecca) always have a smile to greet you on entrance....the dentists(Dorsa and Morva) are so professional and so very friendly...dental nurse (Meera)again greet you with a friendly smile....all of the other staff, who I can't name, also always smiling.
I have been a patient with Bhandal for many years and I have never had a bad experience. I have recently had some composite bonding done by Dorsa who has done a fantastic job, she has a real eye for detail and has given me back the confidence to smile.
