Are you new to Dentists of Dandenong?

Our team cares about all our patients, including those who are new to us! We provide a comprehensive examination of your entire chewing system, which usually includes:

  • A review of dental and medical history prior to performing the oral examination
  • Full diagnostic photographs
  • An oral cancer examination
  • An assessment of all teeth and gum tissue
  • X-rays to detect pathology
  • A full bite analysis
  • The checking of jaw joints for any abnormalities or signs of TMJ dysfunction
  • An in-depth explanation and discussion of all findings

This comprehensive assessment usually takes about an hour without a cleaning. It is important to allocate enough time for your first appointment.

What to expect at your first visit

Our friendly and attentive reception staff will greet you as soon as you walk through our doors. We treat others the way we want to be treated, and we see you as our guest. For new patients, we will provide you with a medical history form. This helps us in diagnosing or pinpointing any dental issues. It is important you fill this form in while you wait and once finished hand it to our reception staff.

Meeting our dental team

Our dentist listens to any concerns you may have and conducts a comprehensive assessment of the structure, health, and function of your smile. This allows us to identify key issues and recommend a treatment plan that will benefit your oral health.

We discuss any recommended treatments in depth, including all associated costs, risks, potential complications, and the expected results. This way, you can make a well-informed decision about whether it is something you want to pursue.

After identifying your concerns, we work together to formulate a unique treatment plan that meets your desired results and dental needs. We then schedule further appointments or perform your treatment immediately.”

Our treatment coordinators are available at the end of your appointment to discuss the dentist’s recommendations in more detail, answer any questions you may have, provide information on the available financial options, and assist you in scheduling your next appointments.
