Before you even visit Hazelwood Dental Practice, you have the reassurance of knowing you will be treated by one of our highly experienced dental surgeons, together with the team of fully qualified dental nurses, in a relaxed, professional and caring environment, with the latest technology.
Your assessment and discussing your treatment.
We initially invite you to come for a new patient assessment. This is normally at least a 30 minute consultation appointment with one of our dentists, and is a two way process allowing plenty of time for you to address your dental concerns, and talk about how we can help you. At the first appointment you will be asked to complete a medical history form. This helps ensure that before your dentist examines your mouth, they are aware of any important medical factors that could affect your treatment. The dentist will then carry out a gentle extensive examination of your teeth, gums, and soft tissues, including cancer screening along with any clinically necessary photographs. Based on this and your concerns we will do a treatment planning and radiographs (X-rays) session. All of this gives us an accurate picture of your oral health, and allows us to discuss the examination, findings, and all possible treatment options with you, including treatment costs.
If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, implants or orthodontics to improve the appearance of your teeth this can also be discussed and the dentist’s expert opinion of the options available will be given. It is our philosophy to ensure that patients only receive the treatment or services that they want and need.
