Are you new to our practice?
What can you expect on your first visit?
When you first visit our practice, our receptionist will ask you to complete a personal and medical history form. These details will assist us in providing you with an appropriate treatment plan as some complications such as a history of osteoporosis or allergies should be taken into consideration. All information that is collected is confidential and will not be shared with any third party without your permission.
During your initial visit, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the current health of your teeth and gums, will chart any existing fillings and fixtures, and may take x-rays, inter-oral photographs and conduct a routine cleaning of your mouth. Another extremely important, and often under-reported role of your dental examination is the screening of more serious dental conditions such as oral cancer, gum disease (periodontitis) and any infections that may be present. At our practice, preventative care is a priority so we suggest that your routine incorporates regular hygiene visits. Our hygienists will guide you through how to keep your mouth healthy on a daily basis and can recommend techniques and products suitable for your needs.
We encourage our patients to openly discuss their dental queries and expectations with us. Your dental visit is a good opportunity to ask your dentist about any dental treatments, concerns or questions you may have. During your visit your dentist will discuss your personalised treatment plan.
Creating a positive dental experience
We are experienced and sympathetic in dealing with each patient’s anxieties and pride ourselves on developing a personal relationship with our patients. If you are nervous about treatment, or have had any previous difficulty with dental treatment, we encourage you to communicate this to us at your visit. We endeavor to create a friendly and relaxing environment to help deliver a positive dental experience for all our patients.
