Your First Visit

Unless you have an emergency, your first appointment will be for us to get to know each other. Records will be established & you will receive a thorough 10 point examination including any necessary digital x-rays & clinical photographs. We check:

  • medical history;
  • past dental history;
  • face & neck for abnormalities;
  • gums;
  • teeth;
  • inside of the mouth,
  • ¬†oral cancer check;
  • jaw;
  • xrays;
  • bone condition;

Finally there is a discussion about any treatment needed or any measures necessary to keep healthy.

All patients receive a comprehensive written treatment plan & estimate of costs.

Please allow 1 hour for your 1st visit. We also use a digital intra oral camera as part of the discussion & diagnosis sessions that follow the examination.
