What to Expect as a New Patient
As a new patient to our office, your first visit will consist of a very thorough comprehensive exam of your teeth and gums. The entire appointment typically lasts about 2 hours. During this time, a set of bitewing x-rays and a panoramic x-ray will be taken to ensure a complete diagnosis of your oral health. We will pay extra attention to any special areas of concern you may have, as well as any issues of concern we identify during the physical exam.
After completing our assessment of your oral health, we develop a personalized treatment plan and discuss the options with you in detail. We use this time to answer any questions you may have, while making sure you understand all of your options.
From there, our staff will work with you to schedule one or more follow-up visits with a dental hygenist, as well as appointments for any other dental work you may wish to have us provide.
Please remember, if you have any questions or concerns at any time during this process, you’re always welcome and encouraged to call our office at 615.591.0294 or eMail us for assistance.
We’re looking forward to having you as a patient!
