ServicesDr Mark Peddey offers a premium dental service in Elwood which includes comprehensive general and cosmetic care.
My PhilosophyI believe that I have a professional responsibility to deliver the very best that dentistry has to offer.
Dr Mark Peddey and the team at Dentistry in Elwood welcome New Patients. We invite you to refer your friends and family to our care.
At your first visit you can expect:
- an introduction to our team
- a thorough dental examination requiring participation from you
- a discussion of your expectations
- an explanation of your diagnosis and treatment options
Normally an initial appointment is about us getting to know each other and performing a comprehensive oral health examination. We sometimes arrange in advance for you to arrive at this appointment with a set of current dental records. We can arrange for you to have some of these taken before coming to see us.
A complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. So that we can care for you responsibly please assist us if you have a medical condition (i.e diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy etc). We will require a brief medical history from you and a list of your current medical prescriptions. We will also require the contact details of your cardiologist and other relevant medical specialists.
Usually treatment will not be performed at your first visit unless you have made an appointment for urgent dental attention or to have a specific procedure managed.
If you need urgent dental attention before your scheduled appointment time please call us at Dentistry in Elwood on 03 9531 0011. Dr. Mark Peddey can be contacted after hours at 04-1850-5438. He is always available to his patients and their friends and family.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18, at the consultation visit.
