New Patients

What can I expect during my first appointment?

At Renmore Dental, we are always delighted to welcome new patients to our practice. We understand that for some, visiting the dentist is not always associated with a pleasant experience – that’s what we hope to change, by ensuring that our patients have an exceptional experience with us from the moment they enter our practice right throughout their treatment journey.

10 Point Dental Examination

A new patient exam is a 30 minute appointment which involves a comprehensive 10-step oral health assessment. Digital photographs and digital x-rays may be taken if required. On completion of the examination, your dentist will discuss the findings and explain any dental issues discovered during the examination that need addressing.

Proceeding with Treatment
Once you have agreed on a treatment plan with your dentist, we can then proceed with treatment. Treatment may start on the first appointment if time permits, with priority given to addressing any teeth causing immediate issues.

We understand that everyone’s financial obligations are unique, and at Renmore Dental we are committed to formulating a treatment plan that suits you and your budget. For certain treatments, we allow staged payment options where costs can be spread out over the course of treatment, with the final payment due before completion of work.

At Renmore Dental, our high standard of patient care does not finish when your treatment journey is complete. We place a strong emphasis on well structured and customised recall programs for our patients. As your dentist, we cannot understate the importance of regular hygiene and dental appointments to maintain your dental health. We will place you on a customised text-reminder service, and also offer pre-booking for dental hygienist visits to help you maintain your oral health.

A: If you have fractured your tooth, call us to organise an appointment as soon as possible. Depending on the size of the fracture, the dentist should be able to add a small piece of white composite filling in order to restore the tooth shape. However, this may only provide a temporary solution, and the tooth may eventually need a crown in order to protect it long-term.
A: Time is of the essence with this type of injury. Every effort should be made to retrieve the tooth and provided it is clean, re-insert the tooth into the socket in its original position and immediately attend our practice. If this is not possible, place the tooth in cold milk and attend the practice as soon as possible. Please note that this applies to adult teeth only, and we do not recommend the reinsertion of baby teeth.
A: If you have lost a filling, ensure to call us as soon as possible to arrange to have it replaced. If your filling has loosened but has not fully dislodged from the tooth, ensure to remove it from the mouth to avoid accidentally swallowing it. Until it is replaced, ensure to avoid chewing on the affected side of the mouth, and brush your teeth gently. In the event that you cannot attend the dentist immediately, temporary filling material kits are available from your local pharmacy, however this is only a short-term solution.
A: A facial swelling can be a potentially serious emergency if left unattended. We recommend attending our practice as soon as possible. The clinician may have to prescribe a course of antibiotics in order to reduce the swelling. If you are experiencing any breathing difficulties due to the size or location of a swelling, go straight to the nearest accident and emergency department.
A: If your crown has dislodged, ensure to remove it from the mouth to avoid accidentally swallowing it, and attend our practice as soon as possible with the crown. In the event that you cannot attend the dentist immediately, temporary cement kits can be purchased from your local pharmacy, however these are only a short-term solution.
