We love meeting new people! Come and visit our relaxed and friendly dental practice in Cookstown.

Everyone in our team at Loy Dental Care is committed to providing the highest level of customer service and clinical excellence that exceeds our patient’s expectations in a relaxed, caring and friendly environment.

One of the many benefits of being a small private practice is that we can make all of our patients feel at home from the moment they enter our practice.

When you walk in, you will meet Denise and Patricia on reception. Both have been with us for years and are warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about all things dental!

You will have been told on the phone what to expect when you call to schedule your appointment. If you have any more questions, Denise and Patricia will be happy to answer them.

When you have checked in you can take advantage of the comprehensive range of magazines as well as various pamphlets outlining the many services we offer. We also have children’s books to make sure our younger patients feel at home too!

A New Patient Examination

When you arrive at the practice we will invite you to complete a medical and information questionnaire. This will allow us to gain an initial understanding of your treatment needs. During your first appointment your dentist will carry out a comprehensive examination of your mouth, discuss any problems or concerns you may have and gain an understanding of your expectations.

This will include:

  • A thorough dental examination of your mouth for signs of disease including tooth decay and gum disease using our intra-oral camera to gain a full view of your oral health.
  • Diagnostic digital X-rays to achieve a full view of tooth and root positions, and to detect decay, cysts, tumours, bone loss and signs of gum disease.
  • Intra-oral photographs if required will help your dentist to explain any observations made and allow any areas of concern to be monitored.
  • Oral cancer screening - a thorough examination of the mouth, face and neck for any signs of oral cancer

Your dentist will explain the findings from your examination and discuss options with you if any future treatment is needed.

If no follow-up treatment is required, you will be booked in for another check-up in six months, which includes a scale, polish and clean.

Treatment Planning

Once we have discussed the dental issues, we will then explain the treatment options available to you.

We appreciate that this can take some consideration therefore we are happy for patients to take time to ask questions and ensure that their expectations and budgets are met.
