Initial Consultation

The following information may be helpful to you prior to your child’s first visit. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Your child’s first appointment will be for a structured consultation. Included in this consultation is: a comprehensive medical/dental history review, an oral examination (including a chalky teeth check), assessment of growth and development, oral hygiene assessment and instruction, and a dietary assessment and advice as related to oral health. Due to the complex nature of this consultation, it will be necessary for at least one parent, or ideally both, to attend with the child. No treatment will be provided at this visit. It may be necessary to take radiographs (x-rays) in order to finalise a treatment plan, and where possible this will be done at the consultation appointment. Your child will be carefully assessed, and a strategy devised which best suits his or her individual needs.
