At your first visit, your dentist will check your medical history and will ask you about any medicines that you are taking.
They will ask you about any concerns that you have and will want to know your expectations. After carrying out a thorough examination of your mouth, they will discuss their findings with you.
If you need treatment, your dentist will explain the options and the benefits and costs of each. They will be happy to answer any questions and will give you plenty of time to consider these options. When you have decided, your dentist will give you a written plan of what will happen and confirm the cost.
