Your Initial Visit

Your Initial Visit at Ballina Coast Dental

When you arrive at your first appointment, our reception staff will ask you to complete a medical history form so that your health professional will have an understanding of your personal health requirements. You might like to print a copy (button below) to complete at your leisure and bring it to your first appointment. We encourage you to ask if you are uncertain of any of the questions.

Your initial oral examination may include a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We may also take x-rays or photos of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth for proper diagnosis of dental decay or disease. We will spend time discussing your options and oral health plans, specifically tailored to your needs.
