The art of listening is fundamental to achieving a correct diagnosis.
With new patients we will ask you to tell us about your dental and medical history, and from what you tell us we can also determine risk factors, such as smoking or diabetes. Listening is also essential in ensuring that we understand what you want to achieve by visiting a Holistic Dentist Melbourne practice. Some people are solely focussed on functionality – for example being able to enjoy eating a steak because they can bite and chew properly – while for others the concern is about looks, appearances and gaining the self-confidence that comes from having a big bright smile. And of course there are those patients who are concerned about issues such as snoring and sleep apnoea, or problems that relate to temporomandibular joint disorder.
