Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first visit at Image Dental, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff, who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need.

After that, we’ll have you complete a thorough medical history. This is one of the most important parts of your care process, as it helps us understand how your dental conditions may impact other health concerns.

Understanding the Big Picture

Dr Michael Chong (Dentist) will sit down with you to review your information one-on-one. Your medical history helps us paint the full picture of what’s going on in your mouth and body. We also ask that you bring a list of all supplements or medications you are currently taking.

During your exam, we will discuss other aspects of your health, including dental conditions, TMJ disorders, sleep disturbances, chronic health problems, diet, and more. Rather than simply telling you which medications or procedures to avoid, we’ll talk with you in detail about everything we’re finding, so you understand your own health. You’ll leave empowered with the knowledge you need to make the best dental and medical decisions.

Patience and Attention to Detail

  • Dr Michael will then look over your teeth, gums, and mouth to assess your oral health.
  • We may do X-rays if needed. We use low-radiation digital X-rays to maximise the safety of your visit. We also recommend a CBCT (cone beam image) on patients with complex needs for a more detailed and informative assessment.
  • Please reserve approximately 45 minutes for this first visit, as we take all the time you need to answer your questions so we can work together as a team.
  • We will also cover any financial questions during this initial appointment. We offer an on-site HICAPS machine, and we accept Openpay.
