First Visit Experience
Our professional team will help make your new patient experience a comfortable and positive one. On your first visit to Wellard Village Dental, you can expect the following once you arrive:
- A friendly welcome at reception where you will be asked to complete ‘pre-treatment details’ which will provide us with important information to be able to better care for you. You can also download the new patient form here, complete it at your leisure and bring it with you to your first appointment.
- Patients arriving early can relax in our modern patient lounge with a variety of reading material, dental service information pages, toys for children and a flat screen TV.
- A member of our team will then show you into one of our modern, comfortable treatment rooms and you will be introduced to your experienced and friendly dentist.
- Your dentist will conduct a comprehensive oral health check. Which includes a thorough review of both soft (gums) and hard (teeth) tissues and your dentist will discuss the findings with you and hear about any specific concerns you may have. Your comprehensive oral examination will include;
- A guided tour of your mouth with our special intra- oral camera allowing you to get a clear view of your current oral health.
- Radiographs (dental films) as required.
- Your dentist will provide an overview of findings with tailored treatment options suited to your specific treatment needs and desires. Our goal is to partner with you in achieving a lifetime of oral health.
