Collection of Personal Information
It is very important and mandatory that a medical history is taken prior to having any dental treatment done. It also allows adequate record of current and past medications, possible future medications. Many medications can interact with each other, and allergic reactions can occur with medications that can be prescribed by a dentist. This information is used to allow us to treat you best.

Access to your personal information
Some people wish to access their dental records, particularly if they are choosing to see another dentist, for example if they move away from the area, or just find someone they are more comfortable with. In this instance, I am happy to forward a copy of your records to your next dentist, after a “patient request for treatment records to be sent to another dentist” is signed and filled out.
Correction to your Personal Information
If you need to update your personal information, I am happy to do this at your next dental visit in person.
7to7dentist.com offers a unique service to our patients, to allow their payment for dental treatment to be spread over a period of time.
NONE of this information is stored or is visible to ANYONE at 7to7dentist.com, it is entirely handled by eWay and AfterPay.
We use eWay and AfterPay that collects and encrypts credit card numbers, so they can then be billed each month, allowing small payments to be made.
It is the policy of 7to7dentist.com not to issue refunds. In the case of treatment that has failed, a credit may occasionally be offered towards future treatment as an act of goodwill. For example, a tooth may have a large amalgam restoration placed. The tooth or the restoration may fail soon after it is placed, which now requires a crown. In some situations, the cost of the crown will be discounted by the cost of the initial restoration.
