It Starts With a Smile.

New Patient Examination

What to Expect

We allow one hour for our new patient examination.

This extra time does not add to the normal cost of a quicker check up - we simply spend this time getting to know you and to ensure our service is thorough and world class.

During this appointment, our dentist will spend time making a thorough assessment of your 

-       medical and dental history

-       dental goals and main concerns

-       jaw joints

-       teeth and surrounding soft tissues

-       oral cancer screen

-       digital xrays

-       gum and bone charting

-       photographic records

After this examination, our dentist will put together a comprehensive treatment plan, tailored specifically to your needs. This plan will be discussed with you, to ensure that you understand any existing conditions you may have, as well as all the options available to help you achieve dental health.

INFORMATION & MEDICAL HISTORY FORM

If you have not visited us here at Concord Dental Practice before, we would like you to fill out a new patient information form.  You are able to print and complete this form, and bring this along with you to your appointment. A copy of the form can be downloaded here.

If you are unable to print out this form prior to your appointment, it is also possible for you to complete this form when you present at Concord Dental Practice for your appointment. Please arrive 5 minutes earlier to allow time to complete this form.

TRANSFERRING YOUR DENTAL FILES

If you are moving from a dentist in Australia where you have existing records such as xrays, charts and treatment history, it will be beneficial to have those files transferred to us so that we can better understand your dental history.

We ask you to sign a 'release of records' form, granting us permission to seek a copy of your dental records from your previous dentist. Alternatively, you can request your previous dentist to forward them on to us.
