Your First Dental Appointment At All About Smiles Dentistry
As a courtesy to you, we will contact you before the appointment to remind you of the date and time. Since this is your first visit to our office please arrive at least 5 to 10 minutes early to complete the new patient kiosk. You also do have the option to complete these pages on our website.
You will be greeted by our patient care coordinator who will verify the information received and advise the staff of your arrival.
Once arriving in the patient treatment room our assistants will ask many questions to familiarize ourselves with the patient. We will inquire about your medical history, your dental concerns, as well as your dental visions. Your first appointment usually consists of a thorough oral examination accompanied by digital radiographs. The Hygienist or Doctor will also take measurements of your gingival margins (gum tissue) and photographs will be taken.
As the data is assimilated you will meet with Dr. Van Liew or Dr. Hoover. You will be advised you of your dental treatment plan that has been developed specifically for you. The patient care coordinator will then be happy to discuss your insurance benefits and co-payments with you.
