We require basic information to learn more about your teeth.
New patients are always welcome at our friendly Lake Haven dental practice on the Central Coast. To prepare for your first visit, please fill out the online Medical History form prior to your appointment and bring details of any medications you are currently using with you to your appointment. It is essential that we are aware of all medications and medical conditions so that we can take steps to prevent any medical conditions being aggravated by our dental treatment.
What happens during your first appointment?
We’ll thoroughly assess your dental health during your first appointment. This will begin with a visual examination of your mouth and oral tissues. Your dentist may then choose to order digital x-rays to assess the condition of your teeth, gums and jaw.
Our on-site x-ray machines utilise the latest technology and emit extremely low levels of radiation to ensure very safe use.
What happens after the initial examination?
Your dentist will discuss their findings with you and if necessary create a treatment plan that will detail any procedures that you may require. All our dentists take an unhurried approach to patient care and will take the time to answer your questions and discuss any concerns you may have.
We are also happy to work within the constraints of your budget and will consult with you to come up with a solution that offers the best possible outcome for your dental health.
What if I don’t require a dental procedure?
If you are in good dental health, all that may be required is a simple teeth cleaning.
We also offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments for children and adults. We can also offer dietary analysis and advice to help protect you from developing tooth decay or gum disease in the future.
If no other underlying dental issues are present, we recommend that you return for a routine check-up every six months. Book an appointment now by calling (02) 4392 9911.
