Planning for Your Appointment

Typically, the initial new patient appointment takes about 45 minutes to complete. After we’ve reviewed your paperwork, one of our dentists will conduct a comprehensive examination, address any urgent or emergency needs and take any necessary x-rays.

Next, we will discuss any findings and treatment recommendations. We want you to understand which options are available, in particular, those related to your personal concerns or goals.

When treatment is required, we will create an individualised plan that outlines the procedures and appointments necessary for them to be completed.We are always happy to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have, please feel free to ask us anything.
