Visiting LARA dental for the first time? Here is what you can expect.
At LARA dental, we provide high-quality dental care and believe that “there’s no such thing as a typical patient”. We pride ourselves on tailoring care and services to meet our patient’s individual needs.
As a whole team, we believe in taking time; before, during and after visits to discuss important influencing factors and help to understand any special circumstances so we can deliver optimal dental care.
The First Visit
On arrival, you will be welcomed by one of our experienced Front Office Coordinators who will make sure all your medical history as well as contact information and any health fund details are correct and answer any questions you may have.
The New Patient Consultation
Often patients describe our initial consultation as a “never-before” experience. We usually allocate 90 minutes, which may seem lengthy, but it allows us to spend the time to get to know you, your dental history (we can also request any relevant previous dental records to help with this) and better understand what has bought you to us and discuss any concerns and wishes you may have. We will undertake a painless clinical exam where we thoroughly assess your teeth and gums, we will take photos and radiographs (X-rays) with your permission, to better diagnose any issues. We will then discuss the results and any implications of the comprehensive examination. If treatment is required, we will provide you with all of your treatment options and fees to enable you to make an informed decision about any future treatment you may require (no procedures are completed on this first visit).
At LARA dental, we believe in open communication and provide a compassionate and safe environment respecting the rights and dignity of all our patients. With an emphasis on comfort, desired outcome, and longevity, our patients are making an educated decision about their treatment options. We strive to achieve outstanding results for all our patients and love that we can provide these services under the one roof with our highly trained, professional and caring LARA dental team.
