Description of the Location

The clinic is located over 3 floors. There is step-free access but the premises are quite small and would be difficult to navigate for patients in a wheelchair. We do have downstairs surgery which helps patients who find stairs challenging. The clinic is located in a central location in the old town. There is easy access to many public transport links, busses and a few train stations.

DIAGNOSTIC AND SCREENING PROCEDURES

At Mulberry Dental Clinic we are committed and dedicated to providing the highest standards of care and clinical excellence.

We offer a good range of complex specialist dentistry and cosmetic services for adults.

Our specially trained clinicians will carry out diagnostic imaging using Cone Beam CT scans on request through a referral or as required to support treatment planning and will provide interpreting and reporting of images.

We will carry out diagnostic procedures for patients referred for specialist dentistry, and oral cancer screening and communicate the outcomes or diagnosis back to the referring clinicians in a timely manner.

A comprehensive dental health assessment at each examination appointment, assessing and evaluating soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity using diagnostic aids such as x-rays, and intra-oral photographs as and when required.

Our clinical examinations will ensure full medical and social history will be taken, a comprehensive assessment of teeth, and soft and hard tissues using diagnostic aids such as x-rays, and intra-oral photographs as and when required. This will enable us carefully plan and put together a comprehensive report with the proposed treatment care plan, associated costs, risks, benefits and alternatives for each individual patient.

Oral cancer screening will help us in detecting and diagnosing lumps, bumps and lesions. Where any abnormalities will be detected, our highly skilled consultants and surgeons will take biopsies and arrange laboratory testing. Where necessary and agreed with patients, early intervention and surgical removal will be carried out in a timely manner to ensure the best outcome for the patient. 

Clinical Notes and patient records are digital and will be kept securely on dental software.

TREATMENT OF DISEASE, DISORDER, OR INJURY

Same day emergency appointments and treatments will be offered to patients in pain.

Our clinic will offer complex treatments relating to oral surgery, implants, preventative care, restorative cosmetic work, orthodontics, endodontics, prosthetics and treatment of periodontal disease. 

Patients will always be provided with a written treatment plan detailing all costs, risks and benefits and will be encouraged to take time to consider the options.

Timely communications will be maintained with referring clinicians about the proposed treatments and final outcomes before discharging patients back to their care.

Incoming and outcoming referrals will be logged and tracked to ensure timely access to patients and prompt arrangements for treatment refereed.

Our dedicated team will ensure patients are contacted before they are due to attend for treatment and followed post-operatively to ensure safe and full recovery and overall wellbeing.

SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Complex Oral Surgery procedures will be carried out such as impacted wisdom teeth removal, buried roots, removal of lesions, lumps and bumps and biopsies, and complex dental implants.

We will always ensure patients are provided with detailed information and explanations to patients where a surgical procedure is necessary including risks, likely outcomes, procedure, etc.

We will ensure patients have all the information they require to fully understand the procedure and provide informed consent to the treatment proposed. Consent is always reconfirmed on the day of their treatment to ensure it remains valid.

Our dedicated team will ensure patients are contacted before they are due to attend for treatment and followed post-operatively to ensure safe and full recovery and overall wellbeing
