New Patient Centre

At our warm and friendly practice, you can expect to receive the highest quality of dental care from Dr Rangi Perera (Dentist) and her team of dental professionals. When you first come in, you will be asked to fill out some paperwork. Next, you will be taken back to the surgery by one of our team members to begin your exam.

The Examination Process

At Full Smile Dental, our initial comprehensive dental exam includes the following:

  • Obtaining a written record that details your medical/dental history, including a listing of all current medications.
  • Providing a thorough oral cancer screening, checking all of your lymph nodes, lips, tongue and the insides of your mouth and cheeks.
  • A series of diagnostic X-rays that provide a comprehensive view of your teeth and condition of your bones.
  • A periodontal examination, which includes a thorough screening and assessment of your gums, to check for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • An occlusal exam, to check for bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite), worn teeth, and jaw problems, such as TMJ.

Additionally, Dr Rangi will perform a meticulous tooth-by-tooth check to identify cavities, examine prior treatment and restorations and the current condition of each. We will locate any chipped, cracked or missing teeth, or identify any work that needs to be performed such as protective sealants or fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth. During the exam, if we discover a problem or cavity that may need a filling we will address this and provide you with a treatment plan.
