Your comfort and satisfaction are important from the get-go—and that starts here, with an explanation of what you can expect at your first dental visit to Smile Practice Family Dentistry. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your first dentist visit! Just call us at 754-222-4874
In the waiting room, you will be greeted by your Patient Service Representative who will get you started on your new patient paperwork.
You will meet with your dentist to talk about your medical history. If you have any oral health worries or fears, you can feel comfortable sharing them with the doctor—your comfort is most important, so we encourage you to ask questions.
Next, your dentist will likely examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, and take x-rays and/or panoramic radiographs. Panoramic radiographs help your dentist view unerupted or impacted teeth, as well as sinus conditions, and can detect lesions or fractures in the jaw.
Your dentist will discuss the comprehensive dental treatment plan he or she developed specifically for you. While your dentist will provide the expert guidance you deserve, your questions are always welcome and you always have the final say in your treatment.
After you’ve talked with your dentist, your office manager or administrator will answer any questions or concerns you might have, including the payment options available and how your dental insurance works.
After your first dental visit, you will receive a copy of your dental treatment plan, which includes the price quote for your recommended treatments.
Your Smile Practice Family Dentistry staff will provide a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of your treatment plan in writing so you know what to expect.
