Yes! We are currently welcoming new patients to our friendly, holistic and advanced dental practice. We take pride in the efforts that we take that go above and beyond regular patient care and welcome new patients.
As a new patient you’re free to come in and discuss the range of options that we have available and see what sets us apart from other dental practices. We ensure that we set aside appropriate time for you, making your first appointment a thorough one, so that we can get to know you, your medical history and your oral health needs and desires.
It is important to us that you feel able to establish a good relationship with your dentist in Alexandria. That is why we always make it a priority for you to be assigned the same dentist every time you book an appointment with us. We know how frustrating it can be to be placed with different dentists every time. Your comfort is important to us and we want you to feel a part of this positive family that we have built over the years
What can I expect from my first appointment as a new patient?
Our holistic consultation goes further than a simple checkup of your teeth, gums and jaw. This thorough consultation involves us through a series of investigations and checks where you can discuss your previous dental and medical history so that we can holistically understand your dental history and your current overall health.
You will have the opportunity to discuss with your dentist in Alexandria your hopes for your smile and dental health and any worries that you might have. Your dentist will provide you with detailed options appropriate to you after they have done a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, assessed your natural bite and inspect the quality of the surrounding muscles and jaw.
The functionality and mobility of your jaw is important, especially is there is some degree of pain or limitation in movement. The muscles of your head and neck, including your posture will also contribute to any issues you may have.
Previous work on your teeth will be assessed, checking for strength and longevity. The current state of your teeth such as the positioning, any cracks, decay or weakening will be identified and explained to you. Your gum vitality will also be examined, checking for stability and how well they are able to support your teeth.
Your diet says a lot about the condition of your teeth. Please feel free to comment on any concerns you may have regarding your diet in an open, friendly and non-judgemental environment at your consultation. We only seek to help you help yourself in any way that you can. We do not intend to make anyone feel guilty about their lifestyle choices, only to inform you of the effects that this may have and to supply you with some alternative steps to help you to improve the quality of your health and the health of your mouth.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
