Your First Visit
Welcome to the Maroubra Junction, NSW dental clinic of Dr Emmanuel Pertsoulis. Our commitment to your family’s oral care begins with your very first visit to our dental surgery.
Before Your First Visit
To save you time, we’ve included new patient forms on our website; just follow the link. If you decide to fill them out at your first appointment, be sure to arrive about 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
We’ll need to see your ID and healthfund card to check you in at your first visit.
Please also bring the following information:
- A list of medications, including the dosages (Please bring information on both prescription and over-the-counter medications.)
- A list of allergies as well as any medical conditions
If you have x-rays from a previous dentist or specialist, please ask them to send us a copy or bring one along to your appointment.
Your First Dental Examination with Us
At Maroubra Family Dental, we place a high value on patient education, and our patients find that we allow plenty of time for discussion when you are here. You’ll never feel rushed, and you’ll have ample time to ask any questions about your oral health. As your partner in oral health, we want you to be as informed as possible so you can make the best decisions possible for your oral health.
If you have specific goals for your smile, Dr Emmanuel Pertsoulis wants to hear about them.
Here’s what you can expect with your first examination:
- A visual examination of your entire mouth, including teeth and gums
- A gum evaluation to identify—or rule out—gum infection
- An oral cancer screening to check for any abnormalities in the soft tissues
Many of our patients will have their teeth cleaned at this time as well. If it’s been a while since your last dental appointment, or if you have gum disease, we might recommend follow-up cleans sooner than the typical six-month schedule.
For Our Anxious Dental Patients
We realise that most patients are a bit nervous about coming to a new dentist, but if you are particularly anxious, we appreciate you letting us know ahead of time. We want to do what we can to ensure your time with us is as comfortable as possible. Our entire team will help put you at ease.
Our entire dental clinic was designed to be relaxing to help calm patients as soon as they walk through the doors.
If you have questions that haven’t been answered here, we welcome your call to our Maroubra Junction, NSW dental clinic.
We warmly welcome new patients.
