Your First Visit
When you step foot into our spacious and modern practice, you’ll be warmly greeted by our receptionist before being invited to take a seat in our comfortable waiting room. We advise that all new patients arrive about 10 minutes early to their appointment, as you will need to complete necessary paperwork and medical forms prior to seeing your dentist.
We also ask that you please bring any recent x-rays or scans along with a letter from your referring dentist, as this will allow our dental professionals to obtain all of the relevant information about your condition, as quickly as possible. We will also appreciate if you can bring a list of current medications you are currently taking, to further assist your treatment.
What to Expect During Your Initial Consultation
Once your dentist is ready to see you, you’ll be invited into the consultation room. You can expect your initial consultation to last approximately 30 minutes, during which we’ll will carry out a comprehensive periodontal exam, take any necessary x-rays to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, abnormal bite, and other signs of periodontal disease.
Once you have been thoroughly assessed, your dentist will discuss your options with you, before providing a detailed treatment plan.
