New Patient - what to expect
Welcome to First Choice Dental! We’re so glad you’ve chosen us and can’t wait to meet you.
We understand that visiting a new dentist (or any dentist!) can be daunting which is why we’ve put together a helpful video of what you can expect on your first visit with us.
From the moment you walk in the door we want you to feel at ease as though you’re amongst friends, because you are!
One of our friendly staff members will greet you and then help you to check in and fill out a medical history form so we can get to know you a little better.
Once you’re all done, our hygienist and therapist Hadel will take you through to the first stage of your appointment where you’ll have both large and small x-rays taken so we can get a better view of what’s going on inside your mouth, with your teeth and jaw.
After that, we’re going to take a few photos of your teeth that we will look at together. This is when you can point out any concerns you might already have and discuss them with Hadel before we move onto your clean.
Once your clean is finished, you’ll be ready to meet our principal dentist Dr Henry. He’ll have a good look at your teeth, x-rays and photos and let you know what’s going on inside your mouth.
We may find that we only need to see you for your regular 6 monthly check up and clean. If however there are any issues that need to be addressed sooner than that, Dr Henry will let you know.
If this is the case, we don’t expect you to take everything in on your first visit. We’d love to invite you back for a complimentary consultation with Dr Henry to discuss your options in more detail so you can make the decision that’s right for you.
So now that you know what to expect when you visit First Choice Dental, give us a call and come and meet our team. We’d love to have you here, because at First Choice Dental, you come first.
