Your initial visit includes an informal consultation to discover if you have any dental concerns and understand how best we can help you. Then, we carry out a comprehensive dental examination and will take digital dental x-rays if appropriate.
When you attend our practice for the first time, we ask that you fill in a Personal Records form. You can complete the form when you arrive, or it is downloadable from our website. Our dentists need to review your dental and medical history, including any medications currently used. Sometimes, certain medical conditions or medications might affect the treatments we recommend, so we want to ensure that any procedure we suggest is safe.
During your initial visit, we will professionally clean your teeth. A professional dental cleaning is non-invasive and is an excellent preventive dental care treatment, removing harmful plaque and calculus (tartar) buildup from your teeth, helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums more easily.
If necessary, we will provide a treatment plan to address any current dental problems, using up-to-date techniques and materials. Sometimes there might be a choice of treatments, depending on the exact technique or materials chosen. We carefully explain each possible option in detail, and of course, the costs.
