WHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
 




What Happens On Your First Visit?

We need to gather all information about you in order to make proper diagnosis and treatment plan. These include: medical history, dental history, your main concern, a minimum of a panoramic x-ray and a few single x-rays.
It is a great idea to print out your health history and fill it out prior to appointment. That way, you can shorten your visit.
 
For new patient, who needs a check-up, we offer the following services:
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Soft Tissue Exam
- Hard Tissue Exam
- Cleaning with Fluoride Varnish (last up to 6mo)
 
1. HEALTH HISTORY FORM - X-RAY:
So, the first step is filling out the health history, then you will have some x-rays taken and the dental assistant will escort you to the examination room. The assistant will ask you a few questions regarding your dental health.
 
 
2. EXAMINATION:
Digital virtual charting allows the doctor to access your health history and x-ray from her computer. No waiting for x-ray to get processed. She will then enter the room to perform a visual oral examination.
 
The doctor will call out the tooth number and ask the assistant to document in your chart (on the computer screen).
 - If  it is a simple case, the doctor will make a diagnosis and treatment plan on the same day.
 - If it is a complex case, we will need intra-oral photograph and diagnostic cast (a model of your teeth) to make proper diagnosis. Then you will come back for a treatment plan options.
 
The doctor will go over the x-ray and treatment plan with you. We will help you choose the best treatment option within your budget. Our goal is to help you achieve optinum oral health and maintain it for life.
 
 
3. FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENT:
The next step is financial arrangement. Either Penny or Christie will help you with everything you need, from no interest payment plan to getting the most benefit from your insurance plan. Please do not make assumption that insurance will cover everything. We will make every effort to help you recover your portion from the insurance.
