It is vitally important to obtain as much relevant information about you as possible when we initially meet, so we can build an accurate picture of you, your mouth, your needs and wishes, when it comes to good oral health.

We ask that you complete a detailed medical history form before your initial examination. Often the information gained from this form leads us to alter the way in which we carry out your dental treatment or requires us to speak with other health professionals involved in your health care so as best to manage your oral health needs.

We thoroughly examine your mouth and surrounding anatomical structures, take as many in-mouth digital x-rays as required, perform other diagnostic tests as needed and conduct an oral cancer screen.

We then engage in a discussion and explanation with you so that you clearly understand all aspects of your oral health condition. Only then can we customize a dental treatment plan that best meets your needs overall.

This comprehensive initial oral consultation usually requires one hour at Dentists on Starkey.

Please note: oral hygiene (cleaning) is generally NOT carried out at this initial appointment.

Please download and complete the medical history form prior to arriving at the practice for your first appointment.
