Initial Consultation

The following information may be helpful to you prior to your first visit. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Your first appointment will be for a structured consultation. Included in this consultation is: a comprehensive medical/dental history review, an oral examination, assessment of growth and development, oral hygiene assessment and instruction, and a dietary assessment and advice as related to oral health. Due to the complex nature of this consultation, it will be necessary for at least one carer to attend with the patient. No treatment will be provided at this visit. It may be necessary to take radiographs (x-rays) in order to finalise a treatment plan, and where possible this will be done at the consultation appointment. The patient will be carefully assessed, and a strategy devised which best suits their individual needs.
