5. Our Commitment to Our Patients

Dental implant treatment is an elective procedure, and as with all medical treatment it is essential that You have sufficient information to understand fully before You give Your consent and commence treatment. As such, the Evo team will question You to ensure that Your treatment expectations and wishes are understood, so that We can guide You appropriately.

Clinical Assessment appointments are provided free of charge. We will, however, on scheduling the appointment, require Your credit card details to pre-authorise the appointment slot.

If You are going to be late for Your appointment.

Phone (not email) the clinic to let us know at least 1 hour before Your appointment. If the phone is engaged, leave a voicemail and We will return Your call. If You are late for Your appointment and have not let us know within this time period, We reserve the right to offer the appointment to another patient.

A Treatment Plan will be agreed between You and Evo. You will be required to sign to give Your consent to the treatment before Your treatment commences. You have right to withdraw Your consent at any time.

All Evo clinicians are registered with the General Dental Council (the “GDC”) and are fully indemnified to undertake the treatment associated with Your treatment. Evo are responsible for ensuring that Your treatment is carried out appropriately, safely and in line with the best evidence currently available.

At each stage of Your treatment We will give You detailed verbal and written aftercare instructions. It is imperative for the short, medium and long term success of Your implants that You follow these instructions. If there is anything You do not understand, just ask – and We will provide You with the necessary support and information.

At each stage of Your treatment, Evo will seek Your ongoing consent to move to the next stage. If during Your treatment, Your Evo clinician feels that You need further or alternative or supporting treatment due to unforeseen circumstances, he or she will explain the reasons for this and seek Your consent prior to commencing any treatment not detailed in Your treatment plan.

6. Email and SMS appointment reminders

Email & SMS appointment reminders are sent as a courtesy. As with all forms of electronic communication, email & SMS is not always reliable. In the event that an email or SMS is not received and You miss Your appointment, a missed appointment fee may still be payable if You have not given us appropriate notice that You are unable to keep Your appointment.

Evo use email as Our main means of communication with patients, since it is the most effective means of communication. With Your email appointment reminders, it is important that you:

  • Provide us with a working email address;
  • Save Evo as a ‘trusted’ sender (i.e. do not black-list us); and
  • Check Your email frequently.

7. Appointment rescheduling and cancellations

To allow us a reasonable amount of time to rebook the scheduled time with another patient:

  • If a non-surgical appointment needs to be rescheduled or cancelled, phone (not email or text) the clinic between 9am and 6pm a minimum of TWO working days’ notice before Your appointment.
  • If Your Reset Day (surgical) appointment needs to be rescheduled or cancelled, phone (not email or text) the clinic between 9am and 6pm a minimum of TEN days’ notice before Your appointment

We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee if You do not notify us within this time period. If You give us this appropriate notice that You wish to reschedule or cancel, We will not charge You a cancellation fee.

Due to their critical nature and timing, the 6 Month Sign-off, Advanced, Essential or Ultimate bridge fits, and Annual Maintenance appointments cannot be cancelled. They can, however, be rescheduled within a month of their allocated schedule.

Please do not arrive unannounced at the clinic, as it is possible We may not be able to see you.

Clinical Assessment Appointment rescheduling or cancellation

Phone (not email) the clinic to let us know at least 1 hour before Your appointment. If the phone is engaged, leave a voicemail and We will return Your call. If You are late for Your appointment and have not let us know within this time period, We reserve the right to offer the appointment to another patient.

If You need an emergency appointment, please phone the clinic so that We can try to find a time that suits You and does not clash with other booked appointments. Please do not arrive unannounced at the clinic, as it is possible We may not be able to see you.

8. Treatment Plan timeframe

Every care is taken by Evo to ensure We provide the best possible treatment for you. The provision of complex dental treatment is always, by its very nature, subject to individual variances. We always try to predict how long treatment rehabilitation will take so You can plan other aspects of Your life with some degree of certainty.

The treatment timeframe is an estimated treatment time, not a definitive timeframe. Your treatment may take longer than We estimate or You may need additional appointments to achieve the best possible result. We do not compensate in circumstances where additional appointments are required.

Let us know if You have any important dates in Your diary (travel, holiday, wedding, work), so We can plan appropriately.

9. Discontinuing an Evo Package of Care

A full jaw or full mouth dental implant Treatment Plan requires a very good two-way professional and communicative relationship between the Evo team members and You. Both Patient and the Evo clinician / team have the right to discontinue treatment at any time if there is a breakdown in communication or trust. You will not be entitled to a refund.

10. Problems or urgent queries

Phone (not email) the clinic if You have any questions, concerns or queries – or if You have pain, discomfort, or have signs of infection such as redness or swelling. If the phone is engaged, leave a voicemail and We will return Your call.

In clinical cases, You will be sent an email template to reply to, in order that We can receive the details of Your problem in the most thorough way possible.

Please do not contact Your own general dentist or a dentist from another clinic, as he/she will not have the appropriate knowledge or access to Your clinical records.
