The New Patient Experience at DesignDentistry

sidebar-ask-dr-maratosYour First Visit with Dr Maratos

Your first visit with us is an extremely important one. It helps us to get to know you as a person, so that we can serve you better.

After you call or email to arrange an appointment, our receptionists will assist you in the new patient paperwork process. Typically we only need one short health history form completed, but patients seeing us for more complex problems like sleep apnea or facial pain may need to complete an additional form.

Your Comprehensive Exam

Please reserve approximately one hour for your first visit at DesignDentistry. During this visit, Dr Maratos will perform a comprehensive examination. This exam assesses your teeth and existing restorations, screens for oral cancer and covers any concerns that you may currently have. These concerns may include sleep problems, pain or cosmetics.

Your Comfort Is Key

We want your visit to our office to be as comfortable as possible. You may notice that we provide extra time for appointments, so that neither our patients nor Dr Maratos have to feel rushed or bombarded by constant interruptions. Aromatic essential oils drift through the air and we have a television screen on the ceiling so you can switch-off and relax. Our warm, friendly staff will help to answer any questions that you may have.

We look forward to helping you have a great new patient experience! Contact us if you have any questions for us. (03) 9570 3128
