Your First Visit
You have probably been referred to us by your general dentist. This could be for a variety of reasons. You might be experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease (gum disease) or you could require dental implants.
What to bring with you
Please bring your referral letter and any x-rays you have.
What to expect
Your first visit will be a consultation with one of our periodontists. They will examine you and discuss the appropriate treatment. They will then help establish a treatment schedule for you.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment. This will allow time to complete additional paperwork.
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, we do appreciate 24 hours notice.
How To Find Us
Due to one way streets we can be a little difficult to get to for the first time.
If you are travelling along Northbourne Avenue it is best to turn into Gould Street, follow it to the end and turn left into Watson street. The second street on the left is McKay Gardens.
If you are travelling towards the city on Barry Drive, the easiest way to find us is to turn off Barry Drive onto Watson Street. Take the third right-hand turn, which will take you into McKay Gardens. The McKay Gardens Professional Centre is located on the left-hand side.
Paid parking is available at the Professional Centre. Please remember to bring coins for the pay machines.
