At Anastasia Dental, we are committed to staying abreast of best practice dental procedures via a program of continuing education, professional group membership and regular attendance at industry seminars and conferences.
Your first visit
Our reception staff will ask you to complete a new patient questionnaire and medical form, which will form the basis of a long-term dental preventative program which addresses your individual needs and circumstances. If possible, you should also bring the following items to your first appointment:
- A list of any medications and supplements you are currently taking
- If a member, your private health fund card
- Your Veterans Affairs card or Medicare card (child benefits scheme) if eligible
- Any information about your teeth from a referring practitioner or existing dental x-rays that you may have.
If you are in any way anxious about your first visit, we urge you to openly discuss this with us and we will try to alleviate any concerns you have. At the first visit we will also talk to you openly about your needs and expectations in relation to ongoing dental care and oral hygiene.
Following your examination and this discussion, we will provide an overview of your current dental health and what, if any, follow-up treatments are suggested, along with a broad outline of the costs and time involved. In many instances there will be a range of treatment options available to you, and again, these will be fully discussed, along with the outcomes each provides.
Updating your details
If you are a regular patient and your personal details (e.g. phone number, email, home address etc.) have changed since your last visit, for your convenience you can complete and email a New Patient Questionnaire to our office.
