First Appointment FAQs
Do I need to arrive early for my first appointment?
Arriving 5-10minutes prior to your appointment will give you sufficient time to fill in our new patient form, if you haven't already filled it in prior.
What should I do if I want to transfer my x-rays and records from a previous dentist?
If you would like to transfer your records you can fill in and sign a 'Release of Records' form that we will send to your previous provider. This can be done via email. There is no fee associated with this service, and it is very common. If you'd like your records to be available for your appointment, please allow a couple of days for the transfer to occur.
You definitely don't need to transfer your records for us to provide you with dental care.
What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
a current list of your medications
your private health insurance physical card (if you have one and would like us to claim your rebate at the time of your treatment) or the downloaded app
