What to expect on your first visit

  1. A thorough one hour examination which includes a medical and dental history. A discussion of dental goals or issues, an assessment of the jaw joint, the muscles, the tissues and the teeth and an oral cancer check. An in-depth bone, gum exam and full dental charting is also performed. We also take digital X-rays, photos of teeth and the mouth.
  2. A comprehensive treatment plan and discussion based on information above.
  3. Hygiene care.

Get ready to smile, laugh, listen to some great music, watch a show on TV, maybe have some NuCalm and oh… yeah get some dental work done. Still have questions?

Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies don’t run on a schedule, and at Deakin Dental we understand that. When these problems arise, we will make the time for you by staying late, shifting appointments and focusing on getting you out of pain!

Whatever the dental emergency, you should be seen as soon as possible! Call our office in Deakin and we’ll do our very best to get you in that day to be treated and feeling better in no time.

Dental emergencies are no joke. Let’s review what is and what isn’t a dental emergency.
