Your First Visit

We want your first appointment to be a happy one!

Mark Brown will examine your mouth thoroughly after taking a comprehensive history. This will include details of any health conditions, medications, allergies, family history etc. If at all possible we would ask you to download our medical history form from the website and complete it to bring to the appointment with you. Alternatively, ask us to post out to you an information pack and complete the enclosed medical/dental /social history and return it to us. Please rest assured that all information given to Porthmadog Dental Centre remains strictly confidential – it will not be shared with anyone without your permission.

During the oral examination, Mark will take a detailed dental history including information about your past attendance at a dental practice, your home routine of oral hygiene maintenance (brushing, flossing etc), any concerns you may have, and your desires for future care and outcomes. The initial appointment will last approximately 45 minutes but more time can be made available if necessary. Please do not hesitate to ask as many questions as you would like – we welcome the opportunity to discuss everything to do with dentistry!

Mark may use an intra-oral camera during your appointment – this will only be used after gaining your permission – it is a wonderful tool to aid discussion and provide information.

It would be very helpful to us if you could arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment due to the various formalities which need to be completed.

We look forward to meeting you!
