New Patients First Visit
When you first arrive at Natureza Dental Practice our team will ask you to complete a confidential Medical and Dental History Form and enter your details onto our practice computer system. To give us more information about your specific concern you can fill out the most appropriate questionnaire to you from the list below. It is not necessary for us to have access to your previous dental records, however you can bring copies of any recent x-rays or treatment plans. You will then be able to relax in our waiting area whilst enjoying a complimentary tea, coffee or water and a variety of nice magazines. A member of staff will then collect you and take you to your new dentist.
At the first visit we feel it is more important to get to know you and establish a good relationship, therefore unless there is any emergency treatment necessary we confine our first visit to discussion of your Dental needs (if any), the taking of a history and a thorough Dental examination together with any necessary x-rays, photos and scans. Your dentist will then explain any findings and discuss with you treatment options and recommendations identified during the examination.
By explaining the options fully, we enable you to make an informed decision about the procedure which is right for you. You will be given a written treatment plan, including an estimate of costs. After your treatment is complete we will agree together how often your routine examination and hygienist appointments will be. For most patients this will be every six months.
Your health and comfort are our primary concerns. Please let us know of any conditions requiring special attention or of any changes in your health during treatment. If any problems should arise, at any time, please inform the Dentist, Practice Manager, or an appropriate staff member so we may have the opportunity to resolve the matter.
Our patients can expect from us a high degree of professional skill and ability, a comprehensive examination, diagnosis and explanation of our findings. It is important that you understand your needs as well as your treatment options, including the costs and benefits of each so you can make an informed decision in selecting treatment that is most appropriate to your individual needs, means, and desires. We promise integrity to perform all services to the best of our knowledge and ability.
