New Patients

Each new patient appointment is approximately 30-minutes long. We tailor your experience around the primary concerns you have at the time of scheduling the visit.

When you arrive, we’ll have a few forms for you to complete (such as basic contact information and a medical history). Then, one of our dentists will personally greet you and escort you back to our clinical area.

Because our ultimate goal is to help you feel comfortable and relaxed, we customise the new patient visit by taking time to get to know you and discuss specific concerns you may have. But if you’re in a hurry, we can accommodate busy schedules as well!

After discussing your oral health and any questions you have, we perform a complete exam followed by a review of our findings and any recommendations regarding treatment needs.

The second phase of the appointment involves a scale and clean with one of our dentists, hygienists or oral health therapists.

What to Bring with You

Be sure to bring a copy of your dental insurance or health fund card with you. All claims are filed on-the-spot through HICAPS. We also bulk bill with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule and Veterans’ Affairs. Flexible payment options allow for convenient financing on all services.

What if You Need Treatment?

At the end of your exam, our dentists will discuss their findings and advise any specific procedures needed to correct conditions like decay, missing teeth, etc.

During check-out, our receptionist will receive a list of recommended treatments and arrange your next visit. It’s up to you how quickly or spread out you want to complete the phases of care, if multiple procedures are needed.

Putting Patients First

It’s our policy that each team member puts patients first. As a practice, we work as carefully and kindly as possible, never pressuring a patient into treatment they do not want. It’s up to the individual and their family to decide the best options for their smile. Open late 3 nights per week.
