Your first visit as a new patient to Downtown Sleep Dentistry and Oral Surgery will either be for a consultation or for a simple procedure. Our doctors and experienced staff members will help you clearly understand the details of your procedure and what to expect upon returning home.
When having an initial consultation separately from your scheduled treatment, it allows our highly-trained and experienced dental professionals the opportunity to assess your general health, the complexity of your specific case and review other treatment options.
It also gives you an opportunity to get comfortable with our Hamilton dental office, choose between and prepare for treatment options as well as sedation levels. This consultation helps decrease anxiety in many of our concerned new patients.
At this initial appointment, patients know that it is a getting to know you visit, that no treatment will be performed and they can have all their questions answered.
It is our goal for our patients and parents to leave the consultation appointment more relaxed and at ease compared to how they felt when they first arrived.
