- Dental records from your previous dentist, ideally organized before your appointment

- Your private health care card
Get comfortable and relax.
DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT
Our goal is to find out the condition of your mouth, give you options to improve the situation, and explain these options to you including risks and cost.
One of our friendly dentists will examine your teeth, soft tissues, jaw joints and other structures, and perform necessary testing. These tests can include low dose digital x-rays, digital photos, intraoral photos, etc. to check for any problems.
You will be able to see with your own eyes the problem areas. We will discuss these problems with you and work out the most suitable treatment plan for you. This process is all about providing you with the information you need to make an informed choice.
