It’s helpful if you can arrive around 10 minutes early for your appointment to complete these details so that you can have the maximum time with the dentist. Also, if you have a list of medications, please remember to bring that with you too.

Once completed, you’ll be asked to take a seat in the waiting room and a team member will personally collect you when it is time for your appointment.
