Travelling Patients

Patients from all over Australia as well as overseas have come to us to be treated by Dr Berera. As Dr Berera only operates in Sydney, we have prepared the following guidelines for patients who are thinking of coming to Sydney for their operation.

Contact our staff to organise a phone or Skype Consultation

During your consultation, Dr Berera will assess your requirements and discuss which procedure is most suitable for you. This preliminary assessment will form part of your overall assessment procedure.

A phone consultation fee of $150 is charged and your booking is secured upon receipt of this payment.

To arrange a phone consultation please call the following numbers:

  • NSW and Interstate patients: 1300 26 77 26 ( local call rate)
  • International: +612 9572 7727 (international rates apply)

 

In order to plan your dental treatment and be able to give you an opinion of your options, we require you to send us some photos of yourself . Please take these photos with multiple views – front, sides and oblique – and either email them to us or load them up via our website contact us page. Our receptionist will be happy to guide you if you have any concerns.

Fill out and return a registration form that we will email to you.

 

First Consultation in Sydney

At your first appointment in the dental rooms, you will need to see Dr Berera in person to determine the final touches necessary regarding your dental treatment. At this time records will be taken such as photos, X-rays and study models. This consult is crucial for your dental treatment plan and is the continuation of your phone consult. You will be unable to proceed for your treatment without this consult.

 

Book and Confirm your Appointment Date

Once you have booked in for your dental treatment, we will advise you on when you should travel to Sydney and how long you should plan to stay after the dental. This will vary depending on the type of dental work you are having done, if you require lab work and if you have had sedation dentistry. We suggest that you have someone accompany you for your treatment as you may need them to take you home as well as potentially help look after you if you have had sedation. This support person can be a family member or a good friend.

When you book a date for your dental treatment, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit. Once this is done, an information pack will be sent through to you which contains all information in detail about your upcoming procedure.

When you book a date for the surgery, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit. Once this is done, a surgical information pack will be sent through to you which contains all information in detail about your upcoming procedure.

 

Arrange your Accommodation in Sydney

Hotel accommodation is available, at a discounted rate, at The Sydney Boulevard Hotel. If you are interested in staying here please call the hospital reception on (02) 9001 2000 and ask for a discount code.

Day of treatment

This will all depend on what procedure you are booked in for and if you are having sedation dentistry. Dr Berera and her staff will give you all details you need to plan your trip and your stay. A comprehensive package of post-operative instructions will also be given and discussed with you as well as any medications that you may require.

After your treatment

The dental treatment that you have chosen to proceed with may require only one visit, or perhaps several over a period of time.

However once your treatment has been completed, our staff will schedule a review after 2-4 weeks to make any small adjustments as required.

After this point, Dr Berera advises regular check ups and cleans every 6 months, to ensure that your new dental work is maintained and will last as long as possible.
