First Visit In Our Dental Office?
You've come to the right place! Your initial appointment will consist of professional dental cleaning, Digital X-rays, and a comprehensive dental examination by your dentist. During this time you can ask any questions and we will explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on a different day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics, for pre-medication)
Our offices utilizes only digital x-rays. If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office (Record Transfer Form). If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact that we at Alliance Dental Center provide many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Please allow approximately one to one and half hours for your first dental visit.
In order to utilize our time and prevent unnecessary wait times for our patients, we do require 24-hour notice for appointment cancellations or rescheduling.
No problem, we are here to answer any question you may have.
