Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we aim to protect our patients and staff to reduce the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
Please see our BLOG for the changes we have made to our practice post COVID:
What is the cost of endodontic treatment?
For information about our fees, please visit our fee guide page.
Is there parking?
We have a carpark with limited spaces. If there is not a space available, there is a carpark opposite with no restrictions.
Do I need to bring someone with me?
At present we are asking patients to attend their appointments on their own, due to COVID-19. This is to reduce the amount of people within the practice to enable us to stay safe and keep apart. Please see our new COVID patient guide.
Any accompanying persons should ideally wait in their car for the duration of the visit.
Will it hurt?
The aim of endodontic treatment is to relieve pain which is caused by either infection or inflammation of the pulp. We use local anaesthetics and modern techniques in order to make patients comfortable during their treatment.
You may experience some discomfort the first few days after your treatment. If this occurs, Dr Bhanderi will recommend appropriate pain relief if necessary.
If you do experience severe pain that lasts more than a few days, please do not hesitate to contact us and we can give you further advice.
I’ve had a bad experience in the past, will it be the same?
We aim to make patients feel as comfortable as possible from the moment we contact them to leaving the practice after their treatment.
We use the most up-to-date equipment and with Dr Bhanderi’s and Dr Jacobs’ expertise and gentle manner, your treatment should be pain-free and comfortable.
Why do you need to take a deposit?
We take a deposit in order to secure your appointment as each treatment will take over an hour. The deposit taken will be deducted from your total invoice at the end of your appointment.
Please note that deposits are non-refundable if you are to miss or cancel within 48 hours before your appointment.
Why have I been referred?
Your general dentist has referred you to ENDO61 as Dr Bhanderi and Dr Jacobs are GDC – registered Specialists and only deal with the more complex and challenging cases by referral from general dentists. This can include patients who are extremely nervous.
What happens at the appointment?

Can I eat after treatment?
As you will be numb for a couple of hours after your treatment we would advise you to avoid eating any hot food or drinks.
It is fine to eat as normal before your treatment.
Can I drive after treatment?
As you will just receive a local anaesthetic that will numb the area being treated, you will be fine to drive immediately your treatment.
Do you have payment plans?
We do not offer payment plans. We take a deposit at the time of booking the appointment and this is then deducted off the total invoice.
At present we are taking the full balance of the treatment the day before the appointment to minimise the contact and waiting time within the practice.
How many X-rays need to be taken?
We usually take around three to four radiographs. All radiographs that we take are absolutely necessary and justified. We use digital X-ray technology that have a lower dose than conventional film X-rays.
