New patients – what to expect during your first visit

Denticare

Your Dental Appointment

Make an appointment prior to your visit via our E-Appointment page or call our appointment hotline (+65 6336 6222). We suggest that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time for registration. Please bring along your identification card or passport to your appointment. You will need to fill in the registration form with your personal particulars and medical history (e.g. drug allergies) for our records. All the information provided will be kept confidential.

Consultation with our Dentist

Our dental nurse will lead you to the treatment room to meet our dentist. Our dentist will recommend the appropriate treatment options for your dental condition after the diagnosis. Depending on the procedures involved, our dental team can start most treatments at the same visit. Our dentist will also advise you on the cost for complex treatments.

Taking of Digital Radiographs (x-rays)

If this is your first time visiting the clinic, we may recommend that you have an x-ray taken to enable a thorough and detailed diagnosis. An x-ray offers more information when compared with visual inspection and shows the overall teeth and gum structure which may not be seen with oral examination alone. This will assist our dentist in providing the best possible treatment options for you.

If you have an x-ray taken within six months, bring it along with you to the dental appointment. Do note that your clinical condition may change with time and a new radiograph may be needed. For female patients who are pregnant, please inform the front desk and dental nurse about your condition.
