YOUR FIRST VISIT
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The first appointment will always involve a consultation first. We will thoroughly go through your reason for attendance, medical history, and discuss your treatment options including the advantages of each. If it is an emergency or a minor procedure, treatment may be carried out on the same day. Or, we may reschedule you for treatment under local anaesthetic (at the clinic) or general anaesthetic (private hospital setting) to ensure the least amount of disruption to your life in the recovery period.
WHAT TO BRING?
Feel free to bring a close friend or relative to the appointment.
Please bring (if applicable):
Current list of medical conditions and medications from your medical GP or Medical Specialists
Radiographs (x-rays) that you have had taken by your dentist/doctor
Other test results e.g. blood results, biopsy reports, photographs
DISCLOSING YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY
FOR ANXIOUS PATIENTS
It is completely normal to have some nerves when it comes to having surgery especially in your mouth. However, many horror experiences and myths do circulate that do not reflect what should occur. Some anxiety may stem from treatment being carried out in an inappropriate setting. If you are anxious, it is advisable to book for a consult first and talk through your concerns with the surgeon. Options including carrying out treatment under general anaesthetic (asleep in a private hospital). Oral Surgeons are specialists who have had years of rigorous formal surgery training after their primary dental qualification. It is guaranteed that knees will be nowhere near your chest!
