How We Start
Your first appointment will often include the “New Patient Special”. We’ll ask you to fill out a form first which will help us assess the level of your health and any work you may have had already.
Our special includes the following:
A full examination from one of our experienced and caring dentists. - A thorough dental exmaination is carried out which includes a gum check and a full mouth/teeth check.
Full mouth digital photographs and assessment. - The reason we take full mouth digital photographs is it gives us a much better understanding of your teeth & gum health. Many patients have never had digital photo’s taken of their mouth, so they also provide us with a way of showing you what is going on.
2 Bitewing X Rays - “Bitewing X-rays show the upper and lower back teeth in a single view. These X-rays are used to check for decay between the teeth and to show how well the upper and lower teeth line up. They also show bone loss when severe gum disease or a dental infection is present.”
A Panoramic X Ray - “Panoramic X-rays show a broad view of the jaws, teeth, sinuses, nasal area, and temporomandibular (jaw) joints. These X-rays show problems such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, solid growths (tumors), infections, and fractures.”
Plus a 45 minute hygiene appointment with our hygienist. - This includes a routine clean. Removal of hard and soft deposits above the gum-line and between the teeth using an ultra sonic scaler, hand instruments and then touch free Prophyflex.
It is called "routine" as it is not for the treatment of periodontitis as this would be separate treatment that has additional charges.
Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible. That is why we have state state of the art facilities and you can even watch tv while your dentist works.
"As you can see our “New Patient Special” is in depth. This is because we want to we want to give you a truly unique experience."
