If you have not attended the clinic previously, we would like to take the time to get to know you and what your dental problems are, as well as what you would like to change about your dental health and appearance. This takes time to do effectively and accurately, and so we allow an hour with our dentist at this initial consultation.
At your initial consultation you will be introduced to our dentists, Dr Barnes, and shown to the consulting area. Here you can discuss your hopes, fears, past medical and dental history and anything else that you have always wanted to know, but haven’t been given the time to ask previously.
Following a very thorough and gentle examination including digital x-rays and clinical photographs of your teeth if necessary, the dentist will discuss his findings with you in a very positive and non-judgmental way. You will be provided with treatment options and all of the facts so that the choices that you make are the best ones for you.
During your first visit, you will also be provided with a printed treatment plan and itemised treatment costs along with further information, timing and sequencing of treatments.
We will warmly welcome you and do all that we can to make you comfortable and at ease. We will be on hand at any time during or after your visit to answer any questions you may have.
