What to Expect

Step-by-step to a Healthy Smile

Group of people smilingYour first visit to Eaton Dental Centre involves gathering your medical history and finding out what brought you to see us on this particular occasion. We work with you to identify your primary problem or chief complaint so that we can address that first, and then we look into your overall dental health, checking all teeth to see if there are any other concerns.

Next we provide a treatment plan with all your options for what needs to be done and an estimate of the cost of each treatment. After openly discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment on the plan, you can then make an informed decision, with budgeting and long-term effects clearly communicated.

What to Bring

Please bring your Medicare card, Western Australian government-sponsored voucher (if you have one), and any private health fund cards so that we are able to claim rebates for you on the spot. You can even download the new patient medical form and submit it online to streamline the process further.

We only take x-rays when necessary. For new patients who haven’t had x-rays in the past two years, we recommend having them done, but it’s your choice.

How long does the first visit take?

Just 45 minutes! We won’t do any procedures on your first visit unless you request it or need emergency repair work done. Instead we take the time to talk and listen to you, understand any problems you are having, address them and ease any concerns. We also give the option of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to ensure any anxiety is reduced.

What Next?

After your first visit, we follow through on what you have decided according to your treatment plan. If you are in any pain, our primary focus is to make you comfortable. Then we look at eliminating any active disease such as decay or gum disease. We use the second visit to stabilise the mouth, for fillings as required. Then if a third visit is necessary, we go into rehabilitation mode, for any repairs such as tooth replacement, dentures or to implant a bridge. Our plan aims to:

1) Address any pain
2) Eliminate active disease
3) Identify dysfunction
4) Rehabilitate.
