An Adult’s First Appointment- What to Expect
Typically, an hour and a half, your first appointment with us involves a thorough and comprehensive exam. We base our treatment recommendations off of our findings, so that your care is individualized to you and your needs. No judgement here- whether it has been 6 months, a few years or more, we are ready to help you achieve your dental needs and a healthy smile! Our receptionist can inform you on the length of stay with us so you can plan accordingly!
We begin all appointments with a detailed medical history, this provides pertinent information to us in how your health relates to your oral cavity and vice versa. There is a strong oral systemic link, to provide safe and thorough dental care a medical history including current medications/supplements is crucial.
Please remember to bring
- List of medications
- Insurance information if applicable
- Names and numbers of Doctors/Specialists
- Arrive 15 minutes early to complete the necessary paperwork
If you have current x-rays, we are happy to request them from your previous dental office on your behalf. Simply provide the office name and location to us or complete this form and email or fax it to us.
We then complete a head and neck assessment, an extra oral and intra oral examination. Update x-rays as required, utilize our intra oral camera to take pictures of our findings ie) fillings to monitor or replace and then we explain a detailed evaluation of our findings. We ensure enough time to review treatment options and to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Depending on the length of time between your last dental cleaning, a cleaning may be completed during this initial appointment. If unable to complete your cleaning within this first visit a subsequent cleaning appointment would be reviewed with you during our treatment planning.
For more information related to a first visit, please call the office! We look forward to meeting you.
