Your First Visit
Welcome to our Adelaide, SA dental clinic. The experienced team at Plaza Dental Care looks forward to providing you and your family with quality, compassionate dental care.
Lives today are busier than ever, and we know it can be tough to fit dental appointments into hectic schedules. We offer convenient appointments so your family can get the treatment they need—when they need it.
If you are planning to book your first dental appointment with us, this is what you can expect during your time with us.
- One of our dentists will conduct a tooth-by-tooth oral examination.
- We will evaluate the health of your gums.
- We will examine the soft tissues of your mouth, looking for any abnormalities.
- After a discussion of your oral health, we will make any needed treatment recommendations.
If arrangements have been made ahead of time, we might also do a professional teeth clean during this time.
The Reason for Your Appointment
Many times, a first visit with us is because it’s been a while since patients have had a professional dental examination. People avoid going to the dentist for a number of reasons. Some people had a bad experience at the dental clinic as children, so they have anxiety about it as adults. Others don’t feel a visit to the dentist is necessary if they aren’t having any oral health issues. There are also those who just get too busy and don’t take the time out of their schedules to make a booking.
If it’s been a while since your last visit to the dentist, for whatever reason, rest assured that we are a judgment-free dental clinic. We cannot change your past, but we can help ensure your future includes good oral health.
If you have come to us because you are experiencing a dental emergency, we will do what we can to ensure that you are comfortable, then schedule follow-up treatment, if needed.
We might ask to take dental x-rays at your appointment.
