New Patient Centre

Welcome to The Smile Factory! We look forward to meeting you and appreciate the trust you place in us when you become a patient at our office. We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to your appointment to complete your paperwork.
Please bring in your health fund membership card and if you have a complex medical history, a list of your medications.

Your First Visit

We’ll have you fill out paperwork on an iPad, which is uploaded directly to your patient file. You’ll meet your dentist, who will sit down to have a chat with you. We’ll discuss your dental history and what’s brought you in, then start on a comprehensive examination. We check your entire mouth, taking pictures of your teeth with an intraoral camera, and take X-rays with our OPG machine.

Then, we’ll go through all results with you, explaining so that you understand the state of your oral health. If further treatment needs to be done, we’ll detail your options. Your dentist will also advise you on your oral hygiene. If there is no further treatment required, we’ll proceed with a cleaning. Otherwise, we’ll set you up with any more necessary appointments and do a cleaning on a follow-up appointment.

Sit Back and Relax

We have a television in the ceiling above your chair playing Netflix, so you can pick something to watch during your treatment. We want you to be comfortable in our spacious rooms and offer nitrous oxide sedation. We can also arrange treatment at an area hospital if you prefer general anaesthetic.
