When you first visit our practice our friendly staff will greet you and ask you to complete a patient information form if you have not already done so. You do not require a referral to be able to see an orthodontist, but if you do have one please bring it with you together with any x-rays or diagnostic records that may relate to your management.
At your initial consultation, Dr Brooks will discuss your primary concerns, perform a thorough orthodontic examination and summarise the relevant findings for you. Treatment possibilities will be outlined and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions relating to your management.
If orthodontic treatment is warranted and you wish to proceed further, diagnostic records would be obtained and we would arrange a subsequent treatment planning consultation for you.
Not all patients will require treatment immediately. If Dr Brooks anticipates that you or your child will require orthodontic treatment in the future, we will place you on an appropriate recall program so that we may closely monitor your facial, skeletal and dental development to establish the most appropriate time to commence treatment.
