Terms & Conditions

Our practice aims to provide dental care of a consistent quality, for all patients. We have management systems to help us, which define each practice member’s responsibilities when looking after you.

In proposing treatment we will take account of your own wishes. We will explain options, where appropriate, and costs, so that you can make an informed choice. We will always explain what we are doing.

We will do all we can to look after your general health. We will ask you about your general health, and about any medicines being taken. This helps us to treat you safely. We keep all information about you confidential.

Contamination control is essential to the safety of our patients. Every practice member receives training in practice systems for contamination control. Wherever possible single use disposables are used. Reusable equipment is sterilised by autoclave. We will always be polite and courteous in our dealings with you and treat you with respect at all times. We expect the same consideration from our patients in return. We reserve the right to refuse to treat any patient who is abusive or discourteous to any member of staff.

Our normal payment procedure is to ask you to pay a proportion of the cost of your treatment at each visit. The final payment being due on your last appointment. We are happy to give estimates of the total cost of a course of treatment before that treatment begins, and will keep you informed of any changes as treatment proceeds. Patients can choose to pay by either cash, debit or credit card. We no longer accept personal cheques.

Please give as much notice as possible if you have to cancel an appointment in an emergency. Please call on 01256 584485. For a genuine emergency cancellation, there will be no charge.

Specialist Gum Care

Hook Dental and our specialist periodontist, Amir Savage, are very pleased to offer an excellent service to patients and referring colleagues in Hampshire.

What is specialist gum care?

Specialist gum care or periodontal treatment is the branch of dentistry concerned with inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues surrounding and supporting teeth and is more commonly known as gum disease.

Private Dentist Hampshire

Some forms of gum disease are reversible but periodontal disease, which is caused by complex interaction between the bacteria and the body’s immune response that leads to destruction of the bone and tissues around the tooth is not curable. It is however possible to stabilise the disease process for a patient’s lifetime. Advanced cases require expert care and periodontists are able to offer procedures that are generally outside the scope and expertise of most dentists and hygienists.

Our specialist gum care service

Amir can offer:

  • Non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy including grafting and guided tissue regeneration.
  • A friendly, motivational approach to engage patients and encourage ownership of their periodontal problems.
  • Comprehensive treatment planning and reports to both the patient and referring practitioner, with follow up letters after every review.
  • A convenient local service with minimal travelling time for patients.
  • Regular informal contact with your specialist via CPD accredited lecture evenings.

Why choose Hook Dental for periodontal treatment?

Amir graduated from Edinburgh University in 1992 and his specialist training was undertaken at the Eastman Dental Institute in 2004 achieving the MClinDent in Periodontology and MRD from the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh in 2007.

Amir was appointed as the Clinical Director of the Military School of Dental Training in 2007 and served as an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh). He now works exclusively in private practice as a specialist periodontist.

What should I expect?

Initial consultations and treatment planning cost £140 and take 45-60 minutes. During this appointment, Amir will carry out a full periodontal examination including pocket charting, plaque and bleeding indexes. X-rays may also be required.

Following this visit you, or your referred patient, will understand the nature of their problems and will be given a plan of treatment both verbally and in writing.

A typical course of non-surgical treatment will involve fees in the region of £600 - £900. This initial treatment phase usually consists of 2 or 3 1-hour appointments, which will be followed by a maintenance phase of 3 monthly hygienist appointments. Patients are then usually reviewed annually to assess their progress. At this point, further specific treatment may be recommended.

Periodontal treatment is a team discipline requiring commitments from you and your clinician. We offer the very best in care and service, and want to work closely with you and referring dentists to ensure they get the maximum benefit from the treatment they receive from Amir.
