PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT

One of our friendly staff will ask you to fill out a New Patient Form. This provides us with a valuable snapshot of your medical history which often impacts your dental health. If you like to be extra organised, download our New Patient Form today and either bring it to your next appointment or email it back to us..

YOU’LL BE GREETED

One of our dentists will greet you in the waiting room and escort you to our state-of-the-art consult rooms. Before we lay you back, we will take the time to discuss your dental and medical history, as well as your dental concerns or aspirations for your smile.

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION

Our aim is to provide all patients with a thorough examination, including screening for oral cancer, jaw joint abnormalities, gum disease, tooth decay and bite abnormalities. Low dose x-rays of your teeth may be suggested to rule out any issues that can’t be seen by the eye. If a previous dentist has taken x-rays within the past 2 years, we are happy to request them for you. Please email info@collaroydental.com.au or call us to start this process, which may take some time.

PATIENT EDUCATION

Our dentists will often take photos of your mouth to assist them in educating you on how to maintain your teeth and explain any problems they see. If any treatment is recommended, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan outlining the time and costs involved, so there are no surprises. We also have creative payment options to make your treatment as affordable as possible.

PROFESSIONAL CLEAN AND POLISH

A professional clean is recommended every 6 months to remove the plaque and tartar build up that irritates your gums. We have a variety of techniques to make this as comfortable as possible for you. Drown out your surrounds and tune into your favourite TV show with our ceiling mounted TV.

STILL ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR FIRST VISIT?

If you’re anxious about your first dental appointment with us, don’t be. Our friendly and empathetic dentists come across anxious patients on a daily basis and are very accommodating. To ensure you feel comfortable and fully informed, they will take the time to explain and discuss any procedures prior to any treatment. They are also happy for you to set the pace for treatment.

If you need a little help to achieve your dental goals, talk to us about our range of options to make the experience more comfortable. Whether it may be noise cancelling headphones, a stress ball, oral sedation medication or happy gas (nitrous oxide) we will happily accommodate you. Who knows, you might have a cracker of a time!
