We take your Dental Examination seriously!
Firstly you will be asked by the receptionist to complete a medical history. Please make sure that you give us all the details about current and past medical conditions as well as your current medication.

You will be seen by Dr Nelz personally and not by a treatment coordinator (usually a nurse). If you have any special requirements, please let the receptionist know at the time of the booking.
Your Dentist will check your extra-oral tissues as well as the teeth thoroughly. We will look out for signs of tooth wear as well as TMJ problems (Temporo-Mandibular-Joint). A mouth cancer screening is part of every examination. Most of the time we’ll take X-rays and intra-oral photos. If you require complex treatment, study models might be required.
If you require treatment, we will discuss this in great detail with you. In many cases, further discussion will take place to find the best possible treatment option for you. And, of course, we will provide a written treatment plan for more complex procedures.
