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.
