What to expect at your 1st appointment

At our practice, all new patients are scheduled for a comprehensive New Patient Examination, during which no treatment will be administered unless it has been previously arranged, for instance, in the case of emergency appointments. Our team will dedicate a considerable amount of time to carefully understanding your dental concerns and discussing our findings with you.

If any treatment is deemed necessary, we will provide you with a thorough presentation of all the available options, giving you the freedom to choose the treatment that suits you best. We are committed to supporting you throughout the entire process.

What is involved in a New Patient Examination?

The New Patient Examination is a one-off hour long appointment with one of our caring dentists which includes the following:

We will check your mouth for signs of tooth decay and dental disease. As well as examining your teeth, we also look at your gums, tongue, lips and cheeks. Our screening process also includes a check of your joints to see how your teeth bite together.
Digital X-ray technology offered at Wahroonga Dental helps support the long-term health of our patients. Compared to traditional X-ray technology, digital X-rays reduce a patient’s exposure to radiation by up to 70-80% and allows dental records to be easily stored and shared between health care professionals. Additionally, this technology does not require any chemical processing, effectively making it a far more environmentally friendly option.

Both oral health and oral cancer screenings are crucial as they can exist without showing noticeable symptoms. By conducting regular oral health screenings, we can evaluate the state of your mouth and detect early warning signs of disease, allowing us to take preventative measures promptly.


The World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that oral cancer is the 11th most common cancer worldwide, with an incidence rate similar to thyroid cancer and melanoma. As your trusted dental professionals, we understand the importance of closely monitoring your oral health, which is why we conduct annual oral cancer screenings that involve a comprehensive visual examination of your entire mouth.

We utilise small digital cameras to provide us with an up-close view of the edges of your fillings and other dental structures within your mouth. These images enable us to gain a better understanding of your dental anatomy, allowing us to identify areas where you may benefit from alternative treatment options.

A smile analysis is a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s smile to assess its overall aesthetic appearance and function, including the teeth, gums, and lips. It involves a detailed examination of various factors, such as tooth color, shape, size, alignment, and symmetry, as well as the contours of the gums and lips.


We use our knowledge and experience to provide recommendations for improving the your smile based on your unique needs and goals. The goal of a smile analysis is to help you achieve a smile that is both attractive and functional.

Having a complete understanding of your medical history and the medications you are currently taking is critical for maintaining your dental health. We prioritise the confidentiality and security of your personal information, ensuring that all details you provide are held in the strictest confidence.

After collecting all the necessary information, we will provide you with a comprehensive presentation of all the available treatment options for you to consider. We are committed to supporting you throughout the decision-making process and will assist you in selecting the treatment option that best suits your needs.
