If you have never been to the candlewood dental centre since your mum made you go in fifth class, you might not even remember what it was like. If you are now an adult, it is well past time you went and had your teeth checked out and the sooner the better. It will ensure any decays are stopped in their tracks and you will have better overall health.
But what can you expect to have done on that first visit? Unless you have a bad toothache, it is not likely to be a visit where any major work is done. Time has to be spent in examining and advising. So here is what you can expect.
- First off, the receptionist will want you to fill out some forms to get all your details.
- Once you are called into the surgery, the dentist will welcome you and ask what the problem is with your teeth. If there isn’t one, you’ll inform them that you just want a check-up.
- They will then inspect your teeth using a few of their instruments to poke into the crevices and see whether there are any decays.
