About your treatment

The tailored treatment plans given to the patients are valid for 3 months from issue. Should a fee increase occur, we will honor the quoted amount if you have started your treatment within the 3-month period.

Treatment plans and costs can be subject to change if necessary, for your dental health or treatment outcome. Should this happen, we will inform you at the earliest opportunity.

You must comply with all reasonable requirements, set out by the dental practitioners at Art of Dental Care in order to improve and maintain your dental health. Failing to do so may compromise your treatment plan.

Consent forms are a requirement prior to any treatment. You may be required to sign a consent form for every part/visit of your treatment journey. We are great at explaining treatment and our clinicians will always make you aware of the risks, benefits and give ample time to discuss or answer any questions you have. Actual insurance benefits will be determined by the insurance carrier if applicable. Before your treatment begins, it will be necessary to have a thorough dental examination including radiographs and any other necessary diagnostic aids. You will be expected to complete the designed treatment plan provided by your dentist and comply with all the aftercare instructions provided by your clinician to achieve the best outcome of your treatment. Routine dental care after the course of treatment will help ensure the best possible results.
