Your First Visit
At Dental Solutions our goal is to provide you and your family with first class dental care in a comfortable setting. Your first visit with us is where that all begins. Even before you walk in the door, we begin working to ensure your appointment a breeze. You can download and fill out the new patient packet prior to your visit, or you can do it when you arrive. If you have dental insurance, we will also get that information before your appointment so that we may promptly file your insurance for you.
When you arrive, we’ll greet you with a smiling face. For most people, a first visit is a comprehensive exam with one of our dentists. This will include any necessary dental x-rays, allowing us to establish a baseline of your dental health and recommend any treatment based on your specific needs. For most patients, one of our wonderful hygienists can also perform your periodic cleaning at this visit.
If you require any restorative or periodontal care, we will go over all treatment options with you. Using intraoral cameras and state of the art digital x rays, we are able to show you the conditions in your mouth on an iPad in your treatment room. We both welcome and encourage questions about your treatment. Because our main goal is prevention of dental problems, not just repairing them, more information and greater knowledge of your dental health will lead to significantly fewer problems in the future.
Once a treatment plan has been agreed upon, you will meet with a scheduling coordinator to coordinate future appointments. She will find a convenient time to schedule you for treatment. If you have dental insurance benefits, we will do our best to estimate the copayment from insurance and will file your insurance claims for you. If you have any questions about the treatment cost, financing options, or treatment time please feel free to ask.
If you have a toothache, broken tooth or another type of problem that needs to be addressed your first visit with us may be a bit different. In that case, we will prioritize getting your problem and pain under control first. Once the emergent need has been properly treated, then we will do our comprehensive examination and establish a baseline of dental health.
In all cases we want your first visit with us to be comfortable and efficient. If there is anything we can do to better accommodate your specific needs before or during the appointment, please let us know. We look forward to meeting you. Welcome to our dental family.
