Your First Visit
Don't be nervous, your first visit is a breeze!
At Northside Orthodontics, our patients are like family. On your first visit, we just want to get to know you a little better. We'll talk to you about your smile and what you want to achieve. Every smile is unique so we want to ensure we're giving you the best treatment advice and a personalised plan that will tick all your boxes.
Our practice is always open to new patients. No referrals are needed, just get in touch with the team to book an appointment.
At Northside Orthodontics, our consultation appointment will give us the chance to get acquainted with you and answer any questions you may have regarding your orthodontic needs.
Your Medical History
A full medical and dental history will be taken during the first stage of your visit. Certain medical conditions and medications can affect/complicate treatment; therefore, it is imperative that we have an accurate account of your health.
Getting Records Taken
If a course of treatment is indicated by our initial exam, we will then organize to take orthodontic records (consisting of study models, photographs and a soft tissue analysis) either on the day or at your earliest convenience. Our doctors may also issue an x-ray referral to be taken at one of our local radiography clinics. These records are necessary in order to provide an accurate diagnosis and to make a definitive treatment plan for you.
Your Next Appointment
The next time we see you, your dental condition is discussed and a treatment plan is developed in accordance with your individual needs. The exact cost and an estimate of treatment time are also discussed with you. If you are happy with this, appointments are made.
