To get things started we ask approximately 1.5 hours of your time for an initial new patient consultation. At this in-depth examination Andrew will take his time to get to know you and your mouth, your dental history, any problems or concerns you may have, and get an idea of any goals you may like to achieve with your smile. He will thoroughly check all your teeth and gums, take full dental x-rays and take digital photos of inside your mouth to highlight any areas that need looking at further.
A long appointment with our Dental Hygienist is usually advised at this point to carry out further assessments of your gums and to manage and treat any gum disease.
You will then be given a detailed treatment plan and cost estimate of any treatment that may be needed and we go from there.
What to expect at your first appointment:
- A friendly and welcoming atmosphere to put you at ease
- A full examination of teeth and gums
- A listening ear for any concerns you have
- Full set of x-rays included
- A no obligation quote for any treatment that may be needed
If you have been seeing a Dentist or Hygienist regularly we can arrange for your dental notes and x-rays to be sent to us prior to your appointment, this gives Andrew a good insight into your dental history and requirements.
