What to expect when visiting a dentist in Sydney
When you are finally ready to visit your local dentist and you have decided what treatment you would like, if it is your first time visiting the practice, a practice coordinator will be in contact with you. The purpose of this initial conversation with the practice coordinator is so that they can get to know you better as well as finding out your expectations regarding the treatment you would like.
You will then be invited into the dental practice for an initial appointment. At this appointment, you will be given the opportunity to explain in detail to one of the dental professionals your current situation and how you would like to improve your teeth. You will also be required to fill out a medical questionnaire. After providing the practice with your medical history via the medical questionnaire, the practice will invite you to have a consultation with one of the treatment coordinators.
The purpose of this consultation with one of the treatment coordinators based in the practice, is to give them a chance to obtain initial records from you in the form of x-rays and photographs of your teeth, face and smile, along with other important information. Once this information has been collated, you will be matched with an experienced dentist in Sydney who will carry out an oral examination of your teeth and a smile assessment. You will then have the chance to discuss suitable treatment options.
The treatment discussion
The treatment discussion is considered a vital part of the dental experience as it allows the dental professional to explain to you in detail the available treatment options, what treatment is suitable for you, and the necessary treatment steps. This will also give you the chance to voice any concerns you may have about any treatment plans and you will also be given details about the cost of the treatment and any available payment plans.
