New Patient Appointments at Smile Artistry
Smile Artistry's services are tailored for high quality and personalised dental care. From the start of your New Patient Appointment we want to take the time so you can make the right decisions about your Dental Health and Dental Treatment Options. Your New Patient Experience should set-off in the right direction and build for a relationship of trust and respect for optimal Dental Health.
For these reasons, Smile Artistry has a complete system for New Patient Appointments, not rushed, not by emergency, it is an appropriate starting point for our New Patients who will come to trust Smile Artistry and benefit from our high-quality Dental Care.
New Patient Appointments
Your New Patient Appointment includes a Comprehensive Dental Exam and Assessment for capped cost of $299* for a 60 minute appointment.
(Total appointment value is $900).
During your New Patient Appointment your Dentist will review your previous dental care, medical history and diagnostic forms and complete a comprehensive exam and assessment of your gums, teeth, bite and smile. Necessary X-Rays, Digital X-Ray CBCT Scans and a Digital Mouth Scan will be taken.
(From August 2015) The Digital Mouth Scan is the most exciting diagnostic tool in Dentistry in the recent years. In just a few minutes a pen camera can scan your mouth and take a digital 3D copy of your mouth, all without impressions. This Digital Mouth Scan provides invaluable information and recordings of your entire mouth, recording what is changing over time, what teeth are wearing down, what teeth are moving, what gum levels are changing over time. Even in emergencies it allows the Dentist to revert back to get an older shape of your teeth if need be.
Once your New Patient Appointment is completed you will be presented with a Detailed Dental Report covering the health of your mouth, Recommended Treatments, Alternative Treatments, Necessary Appointments and the Dental Costs involved.
At Smile Artistry we recognise the importance of healthy teeth and gums through Preventive Dental Care. Our Dental Hygienists are responsible for your Preventive Dental Care and your Dental Appointments will be scheduled as necessary following your New Patient Appointment.
