Once your treatment plan has been agreed with the dentist, we will provide printed details of your plan, which we ask that you read through and sign to say they have been clearly explained regarding the treatment options. If this plan changes due to radiographic or clinical findings, we will inform you and discuss this with you. Treatment plans are valid for the next 30 days from the date the treatment was prescribed.
Certain medical treatments require completion of a written consent form. We work to strict governing guidelines in order to ensure that the patient and/or legal guardian is fully aware of the treatment, aftercare and any risk before treatment is carried out.
Fees & late cancellations
We require a card pre-payment and deposits to secure the booking of the treatment. American Smile clinic reserves the right to make a charge for any debt passed to a debt collection agency.
Late cancellations and failure to attend appointments have a negative impact on our service and regular patients. For a deposit to be refunded American Smile clinic requires at least 48 hours notice of cancellation. Cancellations made within this timeframe, or failures to attend, are not subject to refund.
Being late for appointments
Sometimes being late for appointments is unavoidable. Please let us know if you are going to be late but please also be aware that if you are going to be more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late without our prior agreement we may consider that you have failed to attend, in which case you will not be eligible for a refund.
At American Smile clinic, our ceramic veneers, ceramic crowns, implant crowns and permanent fillings are guaranteed for a period of 12 months following placement, provided that the following conditions are met:

No treatment is guaranteed for more than 1 year
Some treatments may have a guarantee of less than 1 year. In this instance, the treating clinician will inform you.
It is important you provide a full medical history and details of any medications that you take. It is also a requirement that we have your correct contact details on file. Should these change, it is very important for you to tell your dentist. While we try to keep all information updated on each routine visit, it is the patient’s responsibility to inform the clinic of any changes in either personal details and/or their medical history. All records are kept in accordance with strict Data Protection guidelines.
