First visit

First Visit

To prepare you for your first visit at our office, here is some pertinent information.

If your health requires that you take a prophylactic antibiotic before your dental procedures, it would be preferable to advise us before hand. Dr Audet will be able to write you’re a prescription, if needed.

Firstly, if you take medication regularly, please bring your medication list with you. If you have reading glasses, bring them with you because you will have a medical questionnaire to fill out.

To make your first visit more complete, our protocol includes :

- Inscription and opening of your file :

  • Medical questionnaire
  • Review
  • Dental care history
  • Identifying your needs

- Data collection by the dental hygienist :

  • Intra-oral digital radiography
  • Intra-oral digital photography
  • Gum and bone survey

- Examination and diagnosis by the dentist :

  • Examination of the temporomandibular joint
  • Functional analysis of occlusion
  • Aesthetic evaluation
  • Smile analysis
  • Extra-oral examination of the head and neck
  • Intra-oral examination of the soft tissues, gums, tongue, palate and throat
  • Cleaning and polishing of your teeth
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Teeth and supporting bone examination
  • Treatment planning tailored for your needs
  • Making your next appointment
Please note that your cleaning and scaling will be done with the remaining time. If appropriate, we will give you another appointment to clean your teeth.
