Your First Consultation
Your first appointment at Kooringal Dental in Wagga Wagga may take around 40 50 minutes. During your appointment you will be greeted by your dentist, where all your concerns will be discussed carefully. Your dentist will run through your full history and get an understanding of your dental issues. During this time, a full oral examination will take place to assess your mouth, gums and teeth for any signs of concern. Your dentist may recommend taking x-rays of your teeth/mouth and may take some photographs and moulds of your teeth in some occasions where necessary.
This will be followed by a discussion of your treatment options and full estimates of the cost of treatment. We do offer flexible payment plans for larger treatments to make our services accessible for all patients.
