Your journey to a great smile starts here.
Once you’ve made an appointment, we’ll send you a welcome email introducing ourselves and asking you to bring the following to your first appointment:
If you have a recent OPG and Lat Ceph xray - you're ready.
If not, the welcome email has a form at the bottom which you can take to your local xray clinic.
These xrays are usually Bulk Billed to Medicare
If you are not covered by Medicare, these xrays cost approximately $60-$100
Dr. Carolyn will go through your concerns, assess your xrays and photos and discuss your objectives and review any risks and concerns for treatment.
She will then go through the various treatment options that best suit you.
You are now ready to embark on your journey to a great smile.
At this appointment, your appliance will be fitted.
It is usually a painless experience, but it can feel different as you get used to the new feelings.
You will be shown how to look after your new appliance.
Your teeth are now undergoing their movement towards a great smile.
The plan for moving your teeth involves a series of small steps where Dr. Carolyn will assess progress and make any necessary adjustments.
