What happens during my free denture consultation?
Our Winnipeg denture specialists are here to educate you on your treatment options. This free education will help you make a decision that is best for you. There is no obligation to proceed with treatment. During this consultation, our staff will do a brief (non-invasive) examination of your mouth and then go over the various options that are available to you. At this time you can ask any questions you may have, and go over costs and timelines. If you have a photograph of the smile you would like, this is a good time to bring it along! If you decide you’d like to start treatment right away, we can begin it at this appointment as well.
