Typical treatment journey

1 appointment


The team will take a full set of diagnostic records so you and Dr Rick can get a clear picture of your unique oral environment. By the end of this appointment, Dr Rick will be able to give you the most complete understanding of your dental situation, allowing for open and honest discussion and tailoring of your treatment plan to achieve your smile goals. You will receive a professional clean to start your dental journey with a hygienic and healthy environment.


A check-up and clean appointment will be scheduled biannually for the maintenance of your dental health and identification and diagnosis of potential problems before they affect your quality of life. During these appointments, your dental records will be updated, oral cancer and systemic diseases are screened for, dental disease is diagnosed and recorded if present and treatment planning is completed. A clean will also be completed to break-up and remove hard build-up that your toothbrush cannot, the teeth will then be polished to remove plaque and surface stains, and fluoride will be applied to to boost their strength and acid resistance.
