Factors to consider when choosing a dentist in Colchester

Whether you have just moved into Colchester or are simply looking for a new dentist for your ongoing dental treatment, there are several factors to take into consideration.

  • Location


When considering a new dentist, it is important to take into account the location of the surgery. This should be considered in relation to home, work and if necessary your children’s school. It is much more likely you will attend for your routine dental appointments if you regularly drive past the dental practice. If you need to go out of your way for appointments this not only increases the time involved with any appointment, but will also make attending seem more of a chore!

Located in the heart of Colchester, The Dental Studio is easily accessible and with parking onsite, we endeavour to ensure that your visit is as stress free as possible.

  • Hours

With people’s ever more busy schedules and longer working hours, The Dental Studio is now able to offer early morning and evening appointments. This will ensure that you can attend at a time suitable for you. We are also able to offer appointments for the whole family to attend together, reducing the need for multiple trips. The Dental Studio is part of an emergency rota of local dentists who ensure that should you have a dental emergency out of hours you can receive swift and effective treatment.

  • Infection Control


All dental practices are governed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in the same way hospitals are and are required to adhere to the rules of the Health Technical Memorandum 01-05. The Dental Studio was inspected by the CQC in February 2014 and met all the necessary standards for infection control. By ensuring all instruments are sterilised in a dedicated decontamination room, the team ensures that there is no risk of cross contamination.

  • Services

At The Dental Studio our focus in on preventative dentistry, finding problems early and treating them to reduce the need for complex and expensive treatment. We are able to offer a wide range of cosmetic services including dental implants, Invisalign teeth straightening, teeth whitening, crowns and veneers. We are also able to offer facial aesthetic treatments for lines and wrinkles.

  • Fees


The fees charged at a dental practice should be the last factor to consider. Although private dental fees may seem expensive, the above factors such as appointments at a time to suit you at an easy location, with all services available under one roof may well outweigh the additional costs of treatment. Here at The Dental Studio we are also able to offer dental payment plans to enable you to spread the cost of routine treatment into easily manageable monthly payments and 0% finance for more expensive treatment plans.

By using these key factors, you will be able to assess what is of most importance to you when you are looking for a new dentist and you can be sure to find one that is right for you and your family for the years to come.
