Which Forms Are Required For New Patients?
When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms so that we can begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms, such as a patient registration form and medical history form.
Below are the links to our new patients forms. To save time during the initial visit, print out the forms, fill them in, and bring them with you to your first appointment.
What Does The Dental Exam Include?
The first visit helps our team become acquainted with each patient and learn about their goals and desires regarding dental treatment. This 90-minute examination does not include a teeth cleaning, but prior arrangements can be made to accommodate this, should additional care be needed. Oral hygiene instructions will also be provided along with suggestions to help the patient care for their teeth. Our comprehensive dental examination includes the following.
- Checking muscles & joints that support the mouth
- Oral cancer screening
- X-rays specific to your needs.
- Inspecting joint function and tooth arrangement
- Dental charting
- Assessing gum health and bone health (Periodontal Health Screening)
- Intra-oral pictures of the teeth & supporting structures
- Aesthetic evaluation/smile evaluation
We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. By working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal: keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums, and jaw joints healthy!
What If I Don’t Have Dental Insurance?
Without dental insurance, many patients are discouraged from obtaining proper diagnostic, preventive, and restorative dental care. We believe every individual should have adequate access to complete dental care, so we offer affordable dental membership payment plans to accommodate every budget.
