When you first enter our Mount Gravatt, QLD dental clinic, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly team members. We will ask that you come a few minutes early to complete your new patient paperwork while you are here. Alternatively, you can complete the paperwork ahead of time. In that case, you’ll simply check-in to reception on arrival and wait a few moments until one of our team members brings you to the treatment area. We run appointments quite promptly, so you’ll seldom have to wait for more than a moment or two.
Dr Paul Trembath will go over your oral health, reviewing your medical history and finding out if you have any questions or issues you would like to discuss. Then he’ll conduct a tooth-by-tooth examination to assess your teeth and gums. Also included is an examination of the soft tissues of the mouth, looking for anything that looks outside of the norm.
Dr Trembath may recommend x-rays to see beyond what he can see in a visual exam. An x-ray will enable him to spot issues while they are still small and easy to treat.
In most cases, you will also be scheduled for a dental clean, so we will provide a scale and polish. If, however, Dr Trembath has detected signs of gum disease, he may recommend you come in at a later time for a deep cleaning.
If you have questions, or if you feel anxious, we welcome your call to our Mount Gravatt, QLD dental practice. We look forward to seeing you.
