What happens at the first dental visit?

At your first visit to Mona Vale Dental you will be greeted by one of our team who will welcome you and take your completed health history form. Don’t worry if you haven’t had a chance to fill it in, as we can take your details during this time as well.

​During your first appointment we will thoroughly assess you by clinical examination and using a combination of digital dental x-rays and photography to record our findings.

We also do an oral cancer check. According to WHO statistics it is the 11th most common cancer worldwide and has the same incidence worldwide as thyroid cancer and melanoma, it makes sense that as we are the people looking in your mouth every 6 months, we keep a close eye on this.

No treatment will be carried out at this appointment, unless previously arranged, such as in the case of emergency appointments. A significant amount of time will be dedicated to understanding your dental concerns and to discuss the results of our findings. Should any treatment be required we will present you with all your options for you to consider. We will support you with whatever treatment option you choose.
