Getting to know you
We place strong emphasis on spending time building rapport with our patients and completing comprehensive oral exams to ensure holistic care.
A thorough medical, family and social history is critical to any dental examination. Dentistry focuses on oral health but the mouth is often the window into the state of health of the rest of our bodies. Cavities aside, the mouth can present symptoms associated with many systemic conditions such as diabetes mellitus, immunosuppression, mental health disease, cancer, gastro-esophageal reflux disease and HIV. By looking into the mouth it is possible to get insight into our patients’ diet, stress levels and lifestyle.
We ensure strict compliance with infection control protocols set by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. This is part of our duty of care as dental professionals.
