We would like to offer free access to a wealth of information on dental subjects for all patients, not just those we treat.
At the bottom of our website front page see our Quick Links where Patient Information can be found.
Find an extensive list of categories of dental problems and treatment options with detailed explanations in clear everyday language, free of medical jargon!
Here at NQ Surgical Dentistry we want to de-mystify the whole dental picture for you and offer you clear information and an understanding of dentistry like never before.
If you’re well informed you can have a far more meaningful discussion with your dentist and make better-informed treatment choices.
I hope you enjoy reading these leaflets.
