Your first appointment will be for a structured consultation. Included in this consultation is:

  • a comprehensive medical/dental history review
  • an oral examination
  • oral hygiene assessment and instruction
  • a dietary assessment
  • advice as related to oral health

At this appointment, the patient will be carefully assessed, and a strategy devised which best suits their individual needs. It may be necessary to take radiographs (x-rays) in order to finalise a treatment plan, and where possible this will be done at the consultation appointment. The complex nature of this consultation means a carer and/or guardian should attend the appointment with the patient.

Please note that no treatment will be provided at this visit.
