New Patient Consultation
We are always happy to welcome new patients to Blue Sky Dentistry. If you are looking for the right dentist, why not take advantage of one of our free initial new patient consultations with our treatment co-ordinator to find out more? You can come along to the practice and experience our warm and welcoming atmosphere first hand. During this appointment, we will discuss your dental history and individual needs in more detail and explain how Blue Sky Dentistry can meet those needs.Our 8-point clinical assessment
When you become a patient at Blue Sky Dentistry, we will typically ask you to attend for an examination depending on your level of risk. These vital appointments are more than just 'check-ups' in the traditional sense of the word. We believe that by focusing on prevention and being proactive, we can identify problems at the earliest stages or even stop them occurring altogether. Our 8-point clinical assessment give you added peace of mind about your oral health, and can prevent unnecessary discomfort and expenditure in the future.Your 8-point clinical assessment includes:
Where necessary, we will take x-rays of your teeth so we can assess the health of the foundations of your current smile. We may also decide to take an OPG x-ray, which gives us a great overall view of what's going on in your mouth as a whole.
- Tooth Check
A thorough assessment of the health, function and appearance of your teeth and any existing restorations.
- Gum Health
We will carry out an extensive gum assessment to assess again the foundation of your teeth. We may recommend a Hygienist programme after this and/or bespoke home care products.
- Jaw Joint
We assess your external jaw joints because the regular occurrence of headaches and migraines is often closely related to 'bite' issues.
- Internal Soft Tissue
We assess the health of tongue, cheeks and palate, and carry out a comprehensive Oral Cancer Screening at each consultation.
- External Soft Tissue
We assess the glands around your neck and lips, noting facial profile and skin shade.
We will discuss your existing diet and lifestyle, including factors such as smoking and alcohol consumption, which can affect the health of your teeth. We will also ask you about your general health and medication.
We always promise to listen to and understand your wants and needs. We believe that it's important to get to know you, to build a sense of trust, in order to give you the care you need. These consultations give you plenty of time to relax and chat without feeling as though you're on a conveyor belt.
