2. You will receive a phone call from one of our friendly team who will book your appointment at a time to suit you. You will then receive an email which will confirm your appointment time, give you some additional information and contain the link you need to join the video consultation.

3. Please complete the optional online smile questionnaire (you will also receive a link to this in your email) prior to your video consultation. This is to help us identify the best options for your smile (it should take less than 2 minutes).

Dr Prashar, or one of our dentists, will be in a private room and we recommend that you do the same to ensure the call is completely confidential.
