Your first appointment with Coastal Smiles will include a comprehensive examination so we can obtain a clear picture of your current dental health and of course it is a chance for you to get to know us and to become more familiar with our dental practice. We will need to know your medical history as this could affect any treatment recommended and you will find our medical history form on our website. Alternatively, you can choose to arrive a little bit early to fill it in just before your appointment. Please bring details of any payment plans you participate in.
During this initial examination, we will want to take a set of x-rays. If you have recently had dental x-rays at another dentist, it is worth bringing these with you. Your examination will include a screening for oral cancer which is very quick and non-invasive. After thoroughly examining your teeth, gums and oral tissues, we’ll sit down with you to discuss our findings and if necessary any possible treatments using photos from our intra oral camera to explain things more fully.
We hope you find your first appointment a positive and comfortable experience. We are all very friendly here so please ask any questions you might have about your dental health. We are here to help you. You can call us on (02) 9971 8992 or visit Coastal Smiles Dee Why at Suite 1, 5 Dee Why Parade, Dee Why NSW 2099.
