First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation, where you will meet with the doctor and have a discussion related to your dental condition. Should you have a dental problem that needs immediate attention, we will make every effort to provide you with the appropriate care during your first visit. Our staff will listen carefully and respond promptly to your questions and concerns. Once we fully understand your goals, we can start collecting the information we need to develop a plan for your dental needs.


Your initial appointment will include a very thorough examination; in most cases requiring a full hour of time.  We will collect and review information relating to your medical history and past dental history as well as all pertinent information relating to the problem or reason that prompted your visit. In addition, you will receive a comprehensive examination that includes an analysis of your existing restorations, your soft tissues to detect any pathological lesions present, a periodontal charting (a gum and bone support assessment), the cosmetic appearance of your smile and an evaluation of your occlusion (bite). Additionally, we will evaluate any X-rays and/or models that you have brought, or if necessary, we will take Digital Radiographs and Digital Images (intraoral pictures) that will supplement your records. Depending on the problems that a patient presents with, new models of the teeth may also be needed to help create a plan of treatment.

Occasionally, as in the case of relatively healthy individuals, certain treatment can often be accomplished at this initial consultation visit.  However, in the case of persons with either a complex medical history or those requiring a comprehensive treatment plan a second appointment will be required. After we study the situation, we will come up with some options and present the proposed treatment plans with you, focusing on advantages/disadvantages of different treatments, as well as cost and time estimated for completing treatment. It is our mentality to educate you about your problem and provide you with treatment options that meet your needs. The key to creating an outstanding final result is taking the time to carefully diagnose a patients problems, so that nothing is left to chance. 


To save time in our office, please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

dont-forget
  • Your referral slip
  • X-rays (if available)
  • A list of medications you are currently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary policy information with you. This will save time and allow us to help submit any claims on your behalf


IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 at the consultation visit.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)

X-Rays

If you have recently had radiographs taken by your previous dentist you may request that they forward them to our office.  If there is not enough time for them to arrive by mail,  if possible, please pick them up and bring them with you for your first appointment.  If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office. We can accept digital x-ray's in JPEG or DICOM format via the internet at info@euroclinic.com.cy. We are very sensitive to a patient’s desire to avoid as much radiation as possible.  We will only request those radiographs necessary to provide you the optimal dental care we are known for.  Further, to reduce the radiation exposure to patients we have fully digitized our radiographic equipment and are able to take images at significantly reduced exposure levels (generally one-tenth of those in the vast majority of facilities)


In Preparation for your visit:

  • Eat breakfast or lunch before your appointment to ensure normal blood glucose level
  • Take your routine medications.
  • If you require prophylactic antibiotics before dental appointments for prosthetic heart valve or orthopedic prosthesis (artificial hip, knee, elbow, etc) please call our office for instructions.
