Why do I need a consultation appointment?
A consultation appointment allows both the dentist and the patient to discuss the existing issues and concerns for the patient, as well as be informed of all potential treatment options. This is something that varies due to what the patient would like done and what the possibilities actually are. This appointment is to have a clear understanding of the patient's next steps enabling reception to book adequate time needed for their appointments or to speak to the necessary specialists if required. As we cannot quote treatment costs over the phone this is also an ideal time to get a full treatment plan with items and costing for the sake of the patient.
