Your First Visit
YOUR FIRST VISIT TO OUR RICHMOND HILL DENTAL CLINIC
Your time in our office, especially your first visit, is about more than just your teeth – it’s about you. We provide all new patients with a free smile evaluation and discuss your goals. We also collect basic medical information to make sure that we offer the best treatment options. When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform your doctor if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell the doctor the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform the doctor of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help the doctor to select the most safe and effective method of treatment for you.
During your first visit, Doctor’s will hear your chief concerns and conduct a complete examination. This will take about one hour and may contain an update of X-rays, digital photographs, and initial diagnostic models of your teeth. It is very important that all the necessary information regarding the health of your joints, periodontal tissues (gums), dentition (teeth), and muscles be gathered. This will allow us to provide you with proper treatment options that will optimize your oral health and aesthetic needs. We will then discuss these options with you along with the fees associated with each treatment option.
Our administrative staff is very knowledgeable and can assist you with any financial or insurance inquiries that you may have.
