What to Expect at Your First Dental Appointment at Royal Park Dental
Your First Dental Appointment
Going to a new dentist for the first time can be a daunting experience. With so many Australians avoiding visiting their dentist due to fear and anxiety, and visiting a new dental practice could increase this stress.
At Royal Park Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with the most comfortable dental experience as possible. In order to help alleviate your worries and concerns, we have compiled a list of four things you can expect from your first dental appointment at Royal Park Dental.
1.You’ll Speak with Our Friendly Royal Park Dental Front of House Team
When you first enter our practice, you’ll meet with our friendly front practice manager Vandana, who will register you as a new patient. Here you will be asked to fill out a short medical history form in regards to your oral health as well as important contact details.
Our team will always strive to make you feel welcome. Vandana is a bubbly, cheerful and social person who loves to look after our patients and goes above and beyond to ensure they feel welcomed, while also taking the time to look after the well-being of our patients while creating a fun and caring environment. She can also answer any questions you may have regarding treatments and the payment methods we have available.
2.Our Friendly Dentists Will Get to Know You
At your first dental appointment, our friendly dentists will take time get to know you, your dental history and experiences, and your reasons for visit. They will also discuss your oral hygiene and address any concerns you may have.
Our dentists care about you as a person as much as they care about your oral health. They believe in building meaningful connections and trusting relationships with you as patient.
3.Examination of Your Oral Health
Next, our dentists will examine your oral health. There’s no need to worry; this is a simple and painless procedure that will only take a few minutes to complete.
During the evaluation, our dentists will carry out an inspection of your mouth, gums and teeth and will ask if you have encountered any problems with your oral health recently. We do this to gain a better understanding of your dental care regime and try to locate any oral health issues that may require immediate attention.
After that, our dentists will inspect your teeth and count the number of fillings you may have. Here is when our dental assistant will complete dental charting. We use dental charting to form part of your dental records, making the information easily accessible ready for your next visit.
4.We Will Schedule You a Follow-Up Appointment
After you first examination and checkup, Vandana will schedule you a follow-up appointment. It is
highly important that you see your dentist regularly in order to prevent things such as gum disease, tooth decay and ensure that your oral hygiene is fighting fit!
Your first appointment at Royal Park Dental won’t take long and is nothing to worry about. If you’re looking for a friendly, caring and inviting dental environment look no further than the Royal Park Dental team. Call and make your first appointment today!
