Welcome to our warm and homely Wangaratta dental practice located in a beautiful heritage building. Michelson’s Dental Surgery wants to make your first visit with us as smooth and relaxing as possible. Here’s what you should expect:

Making Your Appointment

What to expect at Michelson's Dental Surgery

Our waiting area features a separate children’s playroom

We ask that you reserve approximately 30 to 45 minutes for your first appointment. If possible, please bring a copy of previous dental records, including x-rays. Your records will assist our dentists in evaluating your oral health and planning appropriate care in the future.

Once you arrive, our receptionist will provide you with a new patient form to complete. This allows us to gather information regarding your medical history in relation to your dental care.

Our reception area includes a separate children’s playroom, magazines and a flat screen television to keep your entire family entertained throughout your visit with us.

Meeting the Dentist

After you’ve been taken through to the clinical area, one of our dentists will meet with you to discuss any problems or concerns you had regarding your previous dental care. Then, a thorough examination will be performed, depending on the reason for your appointment.

If you are seeing us for emergency treatment, we will endeavour to correct your dental problem at that time. Should additional treatment be required, we will provide you with a full quotation and treatment plan. This allows you time to decide which treatment option you would like to go ahead with. Another appointment will then be scheduled for you to complete the treatment.

Our Ultimate Goal

The dentists at Michelson’s Dental Surgery want you to enjoy every visit with us. Please be sure to let us know what we can do to assist you at the time of scheduling your appointment. Contact us today and be sure to ask about our general anaesthetic options. (03) 5721 8033
