New Patients

New Patients

We’ll begin by getting to know you — your concerns, any difficulties you’re dealing with right now, if and how you would like to change something about your smile, as well as your cleaning and lifestyle habits. 

What does a dental check-up include?

Before we look inside your mouth, where we will conduct an oral health screening, we’ll examine the head, face, and neck. This includes examinations of your teeth and gums as well as for oral cancer and other oral medical issues. We’ll also take photographs and/or x-rays in order to gather data. 

An overall assessment will include:

  • Analysis of your soft tissues (oral cancer screening)
  • An examination of your teeth and gums
  • An assessment of your bite and jaw joints
  • Recording of x-rays, if required

Your appointments are all about you. If you have any concerns, please let us know and we will advise and discuss accordingly. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about all the treatment options that are recommended for you. We endeavour to make your experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

The health of your teeth is invaluable, and prevention is better than receiving dental treatment in the future. Attending regular check-ups will give your dentist the opportunity to see any signs of gum disease or tooth decay, and work with you to keep your smile fresh and bright.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unless you’ve had X-rays taken within the last six months or so, we will want to take some new images during your new patient appointment. Although we can tell a lot about your oral health with a visual examination, seeing what’s going on under your gums and within your tooth structure is crucial. If we spot a possible issue while taking your X-rays, we will often take a few extra so we can have a clear picture of your oral health.

You may assume you should have a dental check-up every 6 months, but some people may not need to go so often and others may need more frequent checks. It really does depend on how good your oral health is.

The time between check-ups can vary from 3 months to 18 months, depending on how healthy your teeth and gums are and your risk of future problems.

General new patient consultation is 45 minutes.

You will be informed on this when you book your consultation.
