For your first appointment, please arrive few minutes earlier. You may enJOY a lovely cup of herbal tea or coffee while our caring staff will help you to fill New Patient Form. In a reception area you get to relax in comfortable chairs and listen to soothing melodies and smell healing aromatherapy. We love lemongrass essential oil! Inhaling the scent of the oil is thought to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety symptoms. If you are worried about/ scared of the first appointment with us for whichever reason, please do not hesitate to let us know. We would like to help and so get in touch with our lovely staff and they will try their best to help you. They will share some of DUO SMILE's tricks agains "nervousness" with you.
We will come to meet you, greet you and introduce us to you. We are mostly women team, except our surgeon specialist Dr Jakub Bojko. After the introduction, we will invite you to the dental office where you and your dentist would sit down in comfortable chairs and we will listen to your concerns, worries, expectations. We may have few questions regarding your health/ lifestyle. After this we suggest the best plan for your first visit. Usually after a quick look to your mouth we start with X-ray examination. We use so called "bitewings" revealing us whether all is good in between your teeth where we can not see, panoramic X-Ray for assessment of upper and lower jaw and jaw joint. In cases where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient we may suggest to produce a cone beam computed tomography which gives three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
Expect thorough check of your teeth, gums, soft tissues under dental magnifying loupes. We also take professional dental photographs to document your journey.
The last part of your appoitment involves thorough explanation of our findings. We often times explain and show needed while examining on a monitor in front of you and or in your mouth e.g. why we recommend amalgam fillings to be replaced and what are the risks for you to keep them. We will explain to you your current situation and suggest the best treatment for you and the best step to start with to achieve oral health. We also may recommend complex treatment such as anti-clenching or anti-snoring guard or hair mineral analysis involving diet plan. We will explain to you how the next visit would look like for you and will explain the procedure for you. Your dentist will also discuss with you the financial costs and options how to pay and the time your visit is likely for you to consume. There's also a plenty of room for your questions.
