New Patients

We are welcoming new private patients to Hartley Dental Practice, which is in Hartley near Longfield, Kent.  

Booking your New Patient Appointment

To book an appointment, please call us on 01474 703484 or you can email us at and we will contact you at your earliest convenience.  Before you visit us, we will need to take your personal details and information on any problems or issues you would like to discuss with your new dentist. We will also send you a New Patient Pack, letting you know some information about us and our services. If your first appointment is imminent, we will give it to you when you arrive for your New Patient Examination. There is no need to arrange transfer of your old dental notes because your dentist will create new ones.

What will happen when I arrive for my first appointment?

Please let Reception know when you arrive and then we will invite you to take a seat and relax in the waiting area.

What will happen at my first appointment

Our new patient examinations are for 30 minutes. You will meet your new dentist and dental nurse, who will begin by discussing your past dental history and any current problems or concerns you have. Your dentist will then conduct an extensive dental examination which includes an oral cancer screening, a gum health check and the taking of X-rays before then discussing any treatment you may need. A clear treatment plan will be provided to you. If you have any questions, at any time, simply ask and your treatment options will be explained to you by the team.
