What to Bring to Your First Appointment
At your first appointment, it is important that we have all the information necessary to plan and discuss your treatment.
When we contact you to confirm your appointment (via telephone or SMS), we will remind you of some of the things you need to bring.
The following things are important for your first visit:
- Referral from your dentist/doctor. Although it is not required to have a referral to see us. If you have been provided with a referral please bring it to your appointment. Sometimes this has been sent to us already. If you are unsure, please contact us, and we will let you know if it has been received.
- X-rays. If you have been given any xrays, please bring them with you. If not, we have a specialized 3D Scanner at the surgery and xrays can be taken during your consultation (and bulk billed with no cost).
- List of medications. If you have an extensive medical history, it may be a good idea to obtain a health summary printout from your GP doctor to bring to your appointment.
- Medicare and private health insurance cards.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
When you arrive, you will be checked in by the reception staff and requested to confirm your details and take your Medicare card number and private health insurance details. You will also be asked to complete a personal and medical history.
At your consultation, a full medical history will be taken and, if necessary, an examination will be carried out. If any further X-rays or tests are needed, they will be scheduled during this visit.
Once a treatment plan has been formulated, an itemised quotation of all surgical costs will be provided.
Following the consultation, the reception staff will organise any further appointments for you. This includes surgical appointments, referrals for further tests, and any further appointments with your dentist/doctor.
The time to ask any questions you may have is during this visit. Remember, you can contact us at any time to discuss your treatment.
