Your First Visit to Whites Dental Care

Accepting New Patients in Neutral Bay

We’re thrilled that you have chosen our practice to provide you and your family with quality, affordable dental care. No matter how long it’s been since your last check up, we’ll tailor your visit to help you get your oral health back on track. Upon arrival, our friendly staff member will welcome you and make you feel comfortable in the waiting room. We suggest that you arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out the relevant paperwork.

What to Expect

Generally, your new patient appointment will consist of a comprehensive examination, professional clean and polish, fluoride treatment and any necessary x-rays. These x-rays will help your dentist screen for tooth decay and other conditions such as gum disease, impacted teeth or cysts which aren’t visible to the naked eye. Following your examination, our dentists Dr Peter MarinovicDr Anthony Lazarou and Dr Cassandra Wee will always take the time to thoroughly discuss your oral health and explain any particular treatments that they may recommend for you.
Your appointment will take approximately 45 minutes.

Your dentist will prepare a detailed treatment plan which outlines the recommended treatments for you in order of priority. It will include the costing and number of appointments required, so that there are no surprises. Your dentist will discuss this recommended plan as well as offer alternative treatment options to suit your needs.

Be sure to bring your health fund card to your appointment so we can process all health fund claims instantly using our HICAPs machine for your convenience. If you have had any recent dental x-rays (less than two years old) we can assist you in transferring them to our practice from your previous dental provider. Please contact us via phone or email to commence this process. 

To find out exactly how much your health fund will reimburse you on each of your upcoming visits we can simply swipe your health fund card through our HICAPS terminal. We like our patients to be informed!

We understand that for many people dental anxiety or fear of the dentist can prevent them from receiving the dental treatment they need. Our dentists and staff will strive to create a relationship with you to put you at ease and make you feel more comfortable whilst at the practice. 

Having a dentist and staff that you can trust is one of the most important keys to putting your mind at ease. Our office has noise-cancelling headphones if you prefer to tune out the sounds around you. Or, you can listen to music or your favourite podcast to keep you distracted. There’s even a television on the ceiling for you to watch. The more relaxed you feel, the more efficiently we can complete your dental treatment. To ensure your comfort, we also offer oral sedatives for anxious patients to ease your mind for a few hours. Or you can choose to have happy gas (nitrous oxide) which wears off quite quickly so you can drive yourself home afterwards. For more complex treatments we can even bring in a specialist sedationist to administer an IV sedative so that you feel like you’re sleeping throughout the entire appointment.
