Initial assessment will take between one and two hours. Your views are first heard. That is followed by a thorough dental examination complemented with clinical pictures and dental radiographs (if necessary). Impressions are also taken so that the teeth can be studied in the laboratory.
The various options available are discussed and a provisional treatment plan may be made. In many cases, a second visit (a week or so later) is arranged so that the laboratory findings can be presented to the patient and a definitive course of therapy can then be decided upon.
Following assessment and discussion all patients receive a written and signed “report” of the proposed treatment. This includes written information of our findings, a detailed account of the proposed treatment and in addition to that a full breakdown of all our costs. Once the patient is fully informed and gives their consent then treatment can begin.
Many courses of treatment require considerable investment in time both for planning and actual “chair-time”. This is often spread over a number of weeks or months. Many times, we are called upon to “fast track” our treatment (e.g. for overseas visitors) and this is something that can be facilitated with some planning and prior arrangement.
Knowledge in empowerment. You are the architect of your own aesthetic dental makeover. That is why we invest considerable time in preparing your report and asking you to return a signed consent form informing us that you are in possession of and understand all the relevant facts.
