DENTAL CARE FOR NEW PATIENTS: WHAT TO EXPECT
YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Generally, the first appointment for your dental care is a new patient examination to welcome you to the practice.
NEW PATIENT EXAM
This first appointment to the dentist is where we take the time to get to know you and your oral condition. We always work together to inform you about the state of your dental health, and what can be done to prevent future problems and how to treat current issues. Some of the things you can expect during your first visit include:
In all cases, we will carefully explain what our findings are, discuss options and work with you to make decisions about your treatment. We want to provide you with all the information needed to maintain and improve oral health. This is an important appointment for establishing a life-long and trusting relationship with the dentist and the dental team.
