Oral Exam / Consultation
A patient’s initial visit to GCDC can be composed of 2 options.
“I only want this tooth ache gone or filling restored on my front tooth.”
“I have a broken denture and just want it repaired.”
Patients will be seen for treatment of request only and item codes for health fund claimed.
Patients may ask:
“I would like a thorough check-up whilst you are treating me for my concern.”
In this case, impressions will be taken and study models will be provided for review. A more thorough appointment will be booked to discuss options and a proposal of treatment and cost will be given to the patient, helping the patient establish the health fund rebate and out of pocket costs.
During a thorough examination, patients can be given the flexibility of seeing the Dentist, Hygienist and Prosthetist during a scheduled appointment for the one consultation fee. This enables patients to receive the correct diagnosis for their desired treatment under the one location.
