First Visit Expectations
Below is an overview of what you can expect during your first visit to Tooth Fairy Pediatric Dentistry or Next Gen Dental.
First Visit Expectations for Adults
Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make your care as individual as you are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of your medications and their dosages (including vitamins and supplements).
A comprehensive oral exam and x-rays, if necessary, will be performed including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
Once your exam is complete, our doctors will talk to you about their findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
We want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well.
First Visit Expectations for Children
To ensure your kids grow up with a healthy respect for their teeth and a solid foundation in preventative dental care, we recommend bringing them in for an exam within six months of their first tooth appearing — or no later than their first birthday.
Early initial visits are essential because they can prevent a lot of bad oral habits and unnecessary dental conditions.
During the exam, your child’s doctor examines their existing teeth, your child’s overall bite, gums, jaw, and oral tissues, looking for any potential problems.
After your child’s exam, their doctor will answer any questions you may have and discuss any treatment recommendations.
