What can I expect at my first appointment?
When you arrive at our office, you can expect to be greeted promptly by a member of our friendly team. Before you see the doctor, you will need to fill out some forms so we can get the important information we need to make sound decisions about your dental care.
If you don’t have current x-rays, we will take a new set of detailed digital images so we can see the exact condition of your teeth. Next, Dr. Peters will perform a comprehensive visual exam and develop an appropriate treatment plan using the information he gathers. We may or may not do a dental cleaning since we don’t know what to anticipate until we understand the state of your oral health.
Once Dr. Peters has been able to review your x-rays, he will discuss your treatment needs with you. Whether you are in good shape, need a few fillings, or have some larger treatments ahead of you, our team will be able to help you through the process to ensure that you fully understand all of your options. We will always review costs and insurance coverage with you before any treatments are performed.
Throughout your first visit, we will ask you to share your concerns and goals for a healthy smile. Your treatment plan isn’t complete until we get to know a little bit about you and understand all your needs. We have been able to create a comprehensive list of services to help our patients with a wide array of dental concerns under one roof!
We know that after a few visits, you’ll see that we are a friendly team of professionals who have your best interest in mind. Please contact us today to make your first appointment at Mill District Dental. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
