Comprehensive New Patient Exam
Getting To Know Our Patients, Not Just Their Mouths

It is the best way to allow our dentists to help all our patients achieve and maintain good oral health and tailor treatment and preventive care to an individual’s needs, budget and wishes.
Please allow an hour for the best oral health care. This allows our team to get to know our patients individually, not just their mouths and teeth! It is the best way to allow our dentists to help all our patients achieve and maintain good oral health and tailor treatment and preventive care to an individual’s needs, budget and wishes.
A Comprehensive Dentist Appointment With Leichhardt Dental Is More Than a Quick Check-up.
It is a thorough examination of the teeth, gums, soft tissues and the muscles and structures surrounding the mouth. Included in our comprehensive exam is an oral cancer screening. In order to properly assess all these structures our dentists will normally need to gather additional information through the use of x-rays and photographs.
Many dental issues are silent, not causing any problem or pain until they are quite advanced, our comprehensive examination allows our dentists time to show our patients any issues that may exist in their mouth
Our Dentists Listen To All Your Concerns.
- life is too busy to fit a dentist appointment into your already tight schedule
- a bad experience in the past
- hating the sound of the drill
- worried that treatment will be too expensive
- or whatever your particular concern may be.
It is important that these issues are fully understood by our dentists so we can best meet our patients’ needs.
We Believe Everyone Should Have Choice And Control Over Their Own Oral Health
Depending on each patients case, the initial dentist appointment may be spent discussing issues, their treatment options, pros, cons and treatment costs. Usually, no treatment will commence during this first dentist appointment visit.
All procedures, treatments and fees are discussed with our patients and a printed quote is provided.
Whether you choose the most affordable or most expensive treatment, our dentists support the patient’s choice and will offer the highest quality of care.
Patient Information Form
So we can provide our patients with the best-tailored care, we ask all patients to fill out a private information form when they arrive for their first dentist appointment. This may be emailed prior to an appointment so it can be completed at our patient’s own convenience.
