What to Expect at Your First Visit
Your first visit will be a time for the doctors to get to know you better, become more familiar with your dental and general health history, and build a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve the smile you want. Your first visit will also be a time for you to complete initial medical and insurance forms, so please be prepared for a bit of paperwork!
To expedite the process, we ask that you bring, if possible, any dental panoramic X-rays taken within the past 6 months. Additionally, if you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card.
Your first visit will probably last around one hour. The visit will consist of a thorough exam, and in most cases, we’ll also clean your teeth. Your dentist will also probably take oral x-rays, which will allow him to examine your mouth for tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems, and any signs of oral cancer.
Having these diagnostic records will help your dentist evaluate any existing dental problems and tailor a treatment plan to fit your needs. We encourage you to ask questions! At Arizona Smile Designers, you are our first priority, so we want to discuss any concerns you have and do all we can to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
We firmly believe that good dental care relies on open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and treatment recommendations, outline possible alternative treatments, and discuss any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist. We want to work with you to achieve one goal – keeping your smile beautiful and keeping your teeth, gums, and jaw joints healthy!
