What Happens During Your First Dental Visit

To ensure that we can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile, the first step in your first dental visit includes conducting a comprehensive dental examination so that we may fully understand your expectations. We can then design a solution that is ideal for you. This may take a variety of forms:

Comprehensive Dental Examination

Ideally, your first visit will be for 1 hour and will allow us to:

  • Discuss your concerns, goals and expectations.
  • Examine your jaw joints and muscles.
  • Examine your mouth’s soft tissues and screen for oral cancer.
  • Examine your gums for signs of disease.
  • Examine your teeth for signs of abnormal wear, decay or broken fillings.
  • Assess your current and future risk of dental disease.
  • Take comprehensive records including xrays and photographs if necessary.
  • Establish a comprehensive baseline record of your dental health.
  • Thoroughly clean and polish your teeth so you can leave with a sparkling smile!
  • This may be with either your dentist or with our dental hygienist.

Routine Examination, Second Opinion or Specific Concern

If you have been seeing a dentist regularly and are just after a second opinion, or only need a routine examination we are happy to cater to you. We can see you for 30 minutes and address your specific concern or carry out a routine examination and clean.

Pain Relief or Dental Emergency

Obviously if you are in pain we will see you as a priority and do everything we can to ensure you are pain free as soon as possible. Further examinations can be organised at a later date as there is not always time to carry out a comprehensive examination at the same time.
