At Family Dental Care, we pride ourselves on delivering a warm, professional and educated service to every patient. Our competent dental team will do their best to ensure your visit to our practice is a comfortable and positive one.
If you’re undergoing a first-time dental assessment, you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire outlining your dental and medical history so we can provide a personalised service and accommodate any individual needs you may have.
Our proficient team of dentists will carefully inspect your mouth, teeth and gums when performing a comprehensive oral examination. Your dentist will be looking for any signs of tooth decay and cavities, loose or broken teeth, damaged tooth fillings or gum disease. This is why a regular dental visit is a necessary part of preventative dental care coupled with flossing, brushing and a healthy diet.
Sometimes X-ray images will be used to facilitate an oral diagnosis. Patients also have the opportunity to discuss any dental concerns and treatment options to gain a better understanding of dental practices and make informed decisions.
