We want to make coming to the dentist quick, easy and comfortable. To make your first appointment quicker, fill out the new patient forms available on our website. This will ensure we have all the information we need to get you started when you arrive for your first visit as a new patient. Our reception staff will get any insurance or payment information before one of our dental hygienists brings you back to one of our comfortable treatment rooms.
During Your Appointment
For your first appointment, we will collect your medical and dental history before beginning your examination. We will take x-rays of your teeth and fully examine your teeth and gums. As part of your exam, we will perform a screening for oral cancer to complete our evaluation of your oral health. Once the physical exam is done, in most cases your teeth will be cleaned by our hygienist as part of your checkup.
Once your teeth have been examined and cleaned, you will meet with one of our caring dentists. Your dentist will go over any dental issues that were observed during the examination and offer treatment options. Feel free to ask any questions regarding your treatment plan, and voice any concerns. If you prefer sedation during dental treatments, this is a good time to talk to the dentist about our sedation dentistry options for future treatments.
Your first visit with us is just the beginning of our partnership in caring for your smile. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your visits with us. Contact our office today to schedule your first visit with Preston Sherry Dental Associates.
