My first visit to the dentist in Sydney CBD
You may have some questions regarding the initial consultation that you will have with us after you have booked an appointment with the dentist in Sydney CBD. Perhaps you are simply weighing up options right now and are unsure whether you want to come in and see us or not, either because you have limited time on your hands or you are one of many people who suffer from dental phobia to some degree.
Maybe you have just booked online or on the phone and are wondering what you might come to expect. If you should bring any documentation with you or how long the appointment might be.
Although we cannot give you exact details as each consultation takes on a life of its own, we are able to give you some kind of general overview so that you are prepared. Our dentists like to have an organic approach to getting to know their patients, so this might mean several minutes of conversation about past issues and future hopes and wishes, or a gentle chat about the weather to alleviate unnecessary fears.
How would a typical first visit with us play out?
We believe that a thorough and comprehensive first examination by the dentist in Sydney CBD is the best way to determine what it is we can do for you in order to achieve a healthy smile that you can be happy with.
It is important that we do not rush any of our appointments in order to give you the necessary time to feel comfortable in talking about any ideas or concerns that you have and for us to gain the information that we need from you in order to give you an accurate diagnosis and inform you in the best possible way about what options you have and what you can do to improve your oral health.
In order to do this, the first step that we take is to sit down and listen to you. We want to get to know your dental desires and to know you personally so that we can work together to get exactly what you need from this relationship that we are starting together.
At Spa Dental Sydney CBD, we gather a range of information from your medical and dental history, to your oral hygiene habits and information regarding your diet. We perform both an extra oral and intra oral examination of you face, mouth and neck so that we can identify the health of your jaw joints, lymph nodes and detect any swelling as well as check your teeth, gums and soft tissues.
Radiographs or scans may be necessary in order for us to have a more detailed examination if we need to inspect the condition of your oral health more closely.
In order to make the initial process go as smoothly as possible, you can feel free to fill out a confidential questionnaire that you can either bring in with you or email back to us. This questionnaire is available on our website to download.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
