First Visit Experience

Are you a new patient?

Our team will do their best to ensure your first visit to our North Sydney dental practice is a comfortable and positive experience. Patients arriving early are welcome to relax in our modern reception area with a variety of reading material and a flat screen television.

New patients will be asked to fill in a short questionnaire regarding past medical and dental history which will help us accommodate any specific needs you may have. You won’t be waiting too long as our practitioners almost always run on time. In the event that there is a small wait, or you arrive early our modern reception area is equipped with sufficient reading material and Foxtel to ensure you remain entertained while you wait.

A member of our friendly team will then welcome you into one of our modern and spacious surgeries where you will be introduced to one of our gentle, caring and competent North Sydney dentists.

Your first appointment is scheduled with plenty of time to perform a comprehensive oral examination, which includes both hard and soft tissues - your gums and teeth. This appointment will include:

  •  A Comprehensive Examination
  •  Professional Clean and Fluoride Polish
  •  Diagnostic X-Rays (if required)
  •  Oral Cancer Screen
  •  Digital Imaging, Guided Tour of Your Mouth
  •  Intra-oral photographs

During this appointment, you will be given the opportunity to discuss any dental concerns you may have; from discomfort and treatment options to the appearance of your smile. Click here to see the new patient offer at North Sydney Dental Practice.

You will then be presented with an overview of the state of your oral health and if required, any options for treatment. We strive to educate our patients on their dental health and possible treatment options to ensure that they are able to make a final informed decision. Our priority is to devise a treatment plan that will ultimately provide the best outcome for you. We pride ourselves on a conservative approach to dental care.

We will always ensure that you are kept informed, making an educated, final decision regarding your dental treatment. After all, it’s your smile.

Our values and what else we offer?

Maintain your optimal level of oral health; we aim to minimise or prevent more complex treatment in the future by maintaining an optimal level of oral health for all our patients.

Be educated on your oral health and treatments required; we provide you with knowledge on dental treatments and recommended treatment plans so you as a patient can make an informed decision.

Special care for anxious patients; we offer treatment from gentle and understanding practitioners in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Our modern surgeries are equipped with mounted TV’s with Foxtel for your treatment as well as cordless headphones with a wide range of music available. In addition we offer Happy Gas and IV sedation for patients who may be particularly nervous in the chair or those undergoing lengthier procedures such as wisdom teeth removal. IV Sedation allows patients to have their treatment completed in a relaxed and anxiety-free state. It is a safe and less invasive option when compared to general anaesthesia.
