Have you booked an appointment at Franksmile’s flagship store, or are you wondering what to expect? Here’s all you need to know.
58 Blandford St, Marylebone, London, W1U 7JB
Be sure to set aside 45 minutes and please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled 20-minute appointment so we can ensure you are fully prepared for your scans.
Here’s a breakdown of the approximate timings:
You can pre-book your appointment directly on our website here - https://www.franksmile.co.uk/locations
Having got to this point, we assume you already know a fair amount about Franksmile and what we do. As you arrive you’ll be welcomed by one of our wonderful Smile Associates and have the opportunity to ask any specific questions or raise any personal concerns that you may have about the upcoming scanning procedure.
You’ll be asked to complete our dental anamnesis and consent form, before using your very own Franksmile toothbrush (don’t worry they’re made from bamboo so are completely sustainable) to prepare your smile for scanning.
All clean and clued up, you’re now ready for your appointment.
Digital 3D Scanning
You will then be escorted to one of our 2 scanning suites in-store, both have been carefully designed to optimise your comfort and privacy.
Don’t worry you're in great hands - all of our scanning staff are qualified dental practitioners who will ensure your scans and photos are great quality. This enables us to design your personalised treatment plan with the utmost attention to detail, ensuring that you are left with the perfect smile after treatment.
Our Smile Associates will swiftly take a complete digital 3D scan of your mouth, allowing us to produce the digital before and after models of your teeth and your custom aligners.
Next up, our practitioners need to take some photos of your teeth and gums, so give us your best shot! Expect them to take 5 photos in total including:
You’ll be given a smile stretcher to wear and you’ll be talked through the whole process. Just like your scans, these images will be automatically uploaded to your customer portal ready for our qualified orthodontists to create your unique treatment plan.
In most cases, with your scans and photos completed, you will now have the option to pre-purchase your treatment plan. However, if our in-store practitioners believe that your eligibility for treatment might be an edge case due to initial concerns with the scans, then we advise you holding off ordering before receiving your official treatment plan over email.
Your individual treatment plan will show you your personal timeline and how your smile will be transformed. Expect this to arrive in your inbox within 5 working days.
The wait is over and your journey to a confident new smile is about to begin…
