Dental Visit

Table of contents

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you might not be aware of the services your dentist can provide. When you come in for a new patient consultation, we can talk through your dental needs and discuss which service will be most suited to you.

First dental visit

It’s important to keep up with your regular dental visits. If you’ve been putting off seeing a dentist, it’s time to get in there! A regular check-up can ensure your teeth and gums are healthy and well-maintained.

Having a first dental visit can give you an opportunity to get any issues fixed before they become bigger problems. A new patient consultation gives you the chance to ask any questions you might have about your dental care. It’s a great time to find out what your dentist recommends and what services you can benefit from.

What does a first dental visit involve?

During your first dental visit, we’ll talk through the following:

What happens during a first dental visit?

A first dental visit usually involves filling out a questionnaire. This helps us to tailor your dental care to meet your needs. You may need to fill out a consent form to complete the questionnaire.

After the questionnaire is filled out, we’ll assess your oral health and make recommendations based on the findings.

You may be given advice about improving your oral hygiene and eating habits. You may also be given a home-care program that includes things like toothbrushes and mouthwash.

We’ll discuss any potential procedures. For example, you may be asked to remove your temporary filling. You might also be asked to have a tooth extracted.

A first dental visit usually takes around an hour to an hour and a half. You’ll receive a comprehensive report about your oral health and recommendations on ways to improve your oral hygiene.

What to do before your first dental visit?

Before your first dental visit, it’s important to get to know your dentist and make sure you have all the necessary information. Ask your dentist any questions you might have about your upcoming visit.

Here are some things to think about:

  • How long have you been a dentist?
  • Where do you work?
  • What services do you offer?
  • What are your hours?
  • Do you offer emergency care?
  • How many staff members do you employ?
  • What kind of insurance do you accept?
  • What is your payment plan?
  • What are your fees?
  • Are you a general dentist or a specialist?
  • Who are your recommended suppliers?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Is there anything else I should know about your dental practice?
  • What happens during a first dental visit?

After your consultation, we’ll talk through your dental needs and what services you can benefit from. We may recommend a procedure to fix a particular problem.

We’ll also recommend a home-care program that includes things like toothbrushes and mouthwash. We’ll advise you about the cost of any proposed treatment. You’ll be able to ask us any questions you might have about the treatment options.

Your first dental visit usually involves some type of treatment, such as:

  • Fillings
  • Gum grafts
  • Root canal therapy
  • Bleaching
  • Extractions
  • Injections
  • Root scaling
  • Prophylaxis (gum disease prevention)

What to do after your first dental visit?

It’s important to regularly visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Your first visit might not be the end of your dental journey. We’ll keep an eye on your oral health to make sure it stays in top shape. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Having your first dental visit can be one of the most important things you’ll do for your teeth and your mouth.

A new dentist is very different to an old one. A good dentist will care about your comfort, safety and happiness – just as much as your teeth.

This is why we’ve created the First Visit Checklist. It helps you to prepare for your first visit to a new dentist. It will give you an idea of what to expect, and how to make your visit the best experience it can be.

It’s designed to help you make sure that you’re ready for your first dental visit. Once you’ve completed the checklist you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your first dental visit.

The checklist includes:

  • What to bring
  • What to ask
  • What to wear
  • Getting ready

Before visiting a new dentist

Have you ever had a bad experience with your previous dentist? Has it made you wary about seeing another one?

If so, it might be worth speaking to the dental practice that you’ve had a bad experience with. We want to help you feel comfortable when you visit us.

You’ll notice that all of our clinics have a First Visit Checklist – you’ll find them near the reception area.

Are you worried about the cost of your dental care?

There are some ways to make sure that your visit to the dentist doesn’t break the bank.

  1. Book a check up before you start treatment.
  2. See if you can get a discount for booking more than 6 months in advance.
  3. See if you can get a price match on an identical treatment elsewhere.
