Before your first appointment you’ll need to fill out a new patient chart with your medical and dental information. It is important to be open about any medical conditions (including medications, supplements, use of tobacco products etc.) because this could affect your dental care. The chart is confidential.
Please also let us know about any concerns, for example, hot/cold sensitivity, pain, loose teeth.
What should I expect at my initial visit?
During your first visit a dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and jaws. Based on the exam we’ll make a diagnosis, if needed, and recommend a treatment plan. We’ll use visual aids such as intra-oral cameras, diagrams, and models to help you understand your treatment.
We encourage our patients to ask questions and express any concerns about their oral health at any time!
How should I prepare for my first dental appointment?
Bring any recent X-rays from your old dentist. You can also sign a release form for these X-rays and we can request them from your old dentist, if that’s more convenient.
Also bring a list of medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you use, a list of existing medical conditions and any oral health related questions or concerns you may have.
Please note that our office is a fragrance-free environment for the health of our staff and patients who have allergies and sensitivities to fragrances. Kindly do not use fragrances such as perfume, cologne, hairspray, aftershave, hand-scented lotion when you come to our office.
