What to expect during your first visit
When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted by our front desk personnel who will check you in, notify the team of your arrival, verify insurance if applicable, and guide you through any necessary new patient paperwork.
New patient paperwork is also available on our website, Click Here.
Once we have all of your paperwork completed, one of our team members will bring you back to the treatment room where they will review your dental history, medical history, and any dental health concerns or issues.
X-rays are an important diagnostic tool and component of your dental exam. If we are unable to get recent x-rays from a previous office, expect to have new x-rays taken at your first visit to allow the doctor to accurately diagnose any areas of concern.
During your exam, your dentist will review your dental x-rays and complete an oral cancer screening which includes an examination of your jaw, neck, tongue and inside of your mouth. This screening is important and recommended one per year. The dentist or hygienist will also do a thorough evaluation of your gums. This will be important in determining the type of cleaning you will need.
This initial exam will take about an hour and a half, and is important so your dental team can identify any issues like gum disease or cavities. Based on your exam, your dentist will develop a personalized treatment plan and discuss options with you.
At your first visit, you may not receive a cleaning. A cleaning may be completed after the doctor ensures it is the appropriate treatment for your specific oral health and also determines the type of cleaning best suited for your situation.
Once you review your treatment plan with the dentist our front desk will help you to get scheduled for your next steps and also review payment options, and answer questions about insurance coverage of your recommended services.
