Patient Testimonials

"Many thanks to all in the team for making my recent root canal treatment such a stress-free experience with each stage of treatment being clearly explained by Mr Goria in terms easy to understand. All members of his team from receptionist to nurse made me feel welcome and relaxed as soon as I arrived and throughout each visit. A friendly and professional practice I would certainly recommend." M.H.


"Receiving treatment from Mr Goria and the team at The Chequers has been a very reassuring experience: Professional, highly competent, clean, kindly and excellent at explaining every aspect of the procedure. I have felt myself, intuitively, to be in the most trustworthy and decent of hands. I would recommend The Chequers to anyone requiring root canal treatment. With thanks, R.G." 


"Root canal is not something to look forward to, but if anyone can minimise worry and discomfort, it is Rahul. His professionalism makes one feel completely safe and at ease. I shall be forever grateful. His advice about anaesthesia was equally useful....and saved me a great deal of money!" S.Z.


"I had experienced tooth pain for 3 months and was advised I would need root canal treatment. I was recommended to The Chequers Endodontic Practice by my dentist. I received fantastic reassurance during the whole procedure, and Rahul explained in detail each part of the procedure and what to expect. I received total reassurance and instantly felt relief from pain. All very professional and would never worry about having root canal treatment here again." S.S.


"Thank you so much for the expert care and attention I have received at The Chequers Endodontic Practice. I am impressed by the friendliness and patience shown by everyone I came into contact with and by Mr Goria's expertise in dealing with such an involved tooth problem. He always took the utmost care to make sure I was comfortable and in no pain. Many thanks, R.T.


 
How to make an appointment.

Before we can help you we need a referral  from your own dentist. This can be sent via the website, by email, post or fax and will give a brief outline of your problem. We communicate with our referring dentists regularly so that they know our referral system. Once we have received the referral, Rachel Stagg, our Practice Manager, will contact you by your preferred method and book an appointment for a consultation. Once the appointment is made, a 'welcome pack' will be forwarded with all details including a medical history form, fee structure and methods of payment. Directions to the practice can be found on this website. Access to the practice is at the back of the building where there is a car park.  

A consultation would be carried out to assess the problem, arrive at a diagnosis and confirm the treatment required. In most cases this is a separate appointment. Very occasionally we may  need  an extended consultation appointment to open the tooth and examine it under the micrscope if a fracture is suspected or there are acute symptoms. 

Fees

The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the tooth involved and the extent of treatment  necessary. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Endodontic fees range from £760.00 for a front tooth to £1075.00 for a molar tooth. The consultation fee, which may include a CBCT scan, is £190.00. Following the consultation appointment a treatment plan and detailed estimate of costs will be forwarded to you. It is our policy that your care is paid for at the time of treatment. We accept most credit  and debit cards, as well as cheques and cash. Due to the nature of our practice and the complexity of the cases we treat, it is not possible for us to accept insurance in lieu of payment. We will, however, provide you with all the information required by your insurance company so that you may obtain any reimbursements due you.

Following completion of treatment, a full report, including copies of digital images, will be sent  to your own dentist. This will inform him or her of the treatment carried out, the prognosis and any recommendations for restoration. As some root filled teeth, particularly molars and premolars, are susceptible to fracture we usually recommend  your dentist constructs a crown or onlay to protect the tooth from chewing forces. This may be carried out following a delay of usually 4 weeks to assess initial healing.

In most cases we review healing with a follow-up radiograph - usually one year after completion of treatment. There is no charge for this appointment.

However, in cases following trauma, it may not be necessary to carry out root canal treatment immediately, or at all, as sometimes the damaged pulp can recover and continue to function.  Review at regular intervals, involving retesting of multiple teeth, would then be advised so that we can intervene should treatment  become necessary. The fee for trauma review appointments is £85.00.
