‘Information is power’ and Sam will impart information to you through video, photographs of past cases and publications so you are fully informed.

After explaining what is actually happening in your mouth, using photo’s of your teeth, digital radiography & plain English, all your treatment options will then be discussed. Sam will then provide you with pragmatic tailored dental solutions and all to your choice of music.
