Your first appointment at the practice is very important. You can expect to be with us for 45-60 minutes. It is a chance for you to meet the team and for us to get to know you. Naturally, you will receive a warm welcome and be able to relax in the elegant waiting lounge before meeting Dr Bashir.
This is a great time to tell Dr Bashir of any concerns you have about treatment and talk about what you are hoping for. Once you are ready he will carry out a detailed 7 point oral health assessment including:
- Your Jaw joint
- Soft tissue of your tongue, cheek and palate including an oral cancer screening
- Your bite and the alignment of your teeth
- The amount of wear of the teeth
- An electronic record of any previous dental treatment
- Gum health
- Digital X-rays
Dr Bashir will then discuss his findings with you in clear, non-dental language and you will of course be able to ask any questions, so that you understand your current level of dental health. Following this you will be given a written treatment plan and financial estimate for future treatment, which will be explained in detail.
You can then book any future appointments back at reception and begin your journey to a healthy great looking smile!
