Your First Visit
Your First Visit – Personalised Orthodontic Examination and Consultation in a Relaxed Setting
We understand that for many people, the idea of visiting a dentist can be a stressful experience. But at Swords Orthodontics, our goal is to help make every visit to our office enjoyable and completely stress-free. Dr Murray and our friendly professional team work hard to help you feel at ease from the moment you first arrive at our office.
During this visit, we will spend time getting to know you and learning about your goals for treatment. Working together, we will develop an individualised treatment plan that best fits your needs.
Your First Visit
- Meet the orthodontist and their treatment coordinator
- Explain to us why you don't like your teeth
- Explain your ideal smile
- Basic orthodontic exam
- Discussion on the types of treatment suitable for you
- Fee consultation, including payment options and discounts
The First Step to a Beautiful, Healthy Smile
The first step is to contact us to organise a free initial appointment.
It is crucial for us to get a view of your overall physical and dental health, so we will have you fill out a medical history form. We will be happy to send out a new patient form so that you can have the information ready when you arrive at our office. Alternatively, you can fill out the form at home by downloading it from our website and printing it out.
Next, you will meet with one of our orthodontists and a member of our clinical team.
During the initial visit, we will gather important information that helps us work out an appropriate treatment plan for you:
- What is it about your teeth/your child’s teeth that makes you unhappy?
- Have you received a referral from a dentist?
- What kind of results would you like to see with orthodontic treatment?
- What sort of orthodontic treatments do you prefer?
Once we have all the necessary initial information, we will arrange for you to spend some time speaking to our treatment coordinator in a quiet, private room. This meeting is just one more way for us to ensure that we have answered your questions and provided all the information you need to make an informed decision about your treatment.
- We will show you examples of orthodontic treatment plan options.
- Explain treatment prices, including tax relief that applies to orthodontic treatment.
- We can find out what times and days are most convenient to arrange your visits.
Before beginning orthodontic treatment, it’s usually necessary to arrange a follow-up visit that allows us time to collect other relevant information like clinical records, tooth measurements, x-rays, photographs, and models of your teeth. The more details we have, the better equipped we are to develop a precise approach to treatment that fits your specific needs.
Our practice is located on Main Street in Swords and is easily accessible by bus or car. If you’re driving, you have several easy options for parking near the practice with Pay and Display out front and an off-street car park behind the practice. Parking is also available at nearby Swords Plaza and Pavilions Shopping Centre.
