#1 Confirm your appointment.
Even if it isn’t your first dental visit, checking in and confirming your appointment at least 24 hours before your schedule can do wonders. Confirm the date and time and you’ll surely avoid mix-ups.
#2 Arrive on time.
Arrive on time or, better yet, arrive before time! You can spend the extra minutes taking in the environment so you’ll be more relaxed.
#3 A bit nervous?
Dental anxiety is a common condition, one experienced by 5% of the Australian population. You are not alone! So don’t be afraid to tell your dentist if you’re feeling nervous or afraid of the dental equipment. Your dentist can help you relax. At True Dental Care Preston, we employ anxiety management techniques including happy gas.
#4 Discuss dental problems.
Your dentist is highly trained and experienced in the field, but your dentist cannot read your mind. So tell your dentist all your dental concerns. This way your dentist can explain things and help you better.
#5 Schedule follow-ups.
Having bright and healthy pearly whites is a lifetime process that involves your full commitment. Schedule a follow-up appointment as you leave. This way your dentist can monitor your progress. A regular dental check-up is scheduled twice a year.
Whether you’re having a regular dental visit or having a dental operation, it is important to come prepared. Your preparation plays a big part in your overall dental experience. Just follow our 5 quick and easy steps to prepare for a dental visit and we promise you a stress-free dental experience!
