On arrival to your first appointment we will request that you complete a Medical History Questionnaire. This will assist your Dentist understand your medical history prior to commencing any dental treatment.
When your Dentist is ready, your Dental Assistant will call your name and lead you from the waiting room through to the dental surgery. The Dentist and Dental Assistant will introduce themselves and ask if you have any specific concerns or issues with your teeth, gums or appearance of your smile.
With the help of the Dental Assistant, your Dentist will then assess the current condition of your teeth and gums.
The Dentist may request that digital dental x-rays be taken of your teeth and gums during your check-up. A dental x-ray is the only accurate way that the dentist can ‘see’ between the teeth and under fillings. Your Dentist may also offer you a scale and clean to remove tartar build-ups.
At the end of your check-up, your Dentist will discuss the condition of your teeth and gums and outline any suggested treatment options with you. They will provide you with all the information required for you to make a decision if treatment is required. Prior to any future appointments or commencement of work, your Dentist will provide you with a personalised treatment plan outlining treatment options, necessary appointments and fees.
