NEW PATIENT EXPERIENCE
Your first visit to The Tooth Doc is the start of a close, long-term relationship with your dental team. On your first visit, you will receive a variety of assessments designed to help us get to know you and to get a complete picture of your dental and overall health, including digital X-rays, a periodontal evaluation, an oral cancer screening, an intraoral exam, and more. Afterward, you will receive a personal consultation that includes an overview of your treatment options. The Tooth Doc team will talk to you about your smile goals and answer any questions you may have.
Q: What can I expect from my first appointment?
A: During your first appointment, your overall dental and oral health will be assessed with a comprehensive oral evaluation. Upon completion of your medical / dental health form, we will ask you to tell us your goals regarding your smile, teeth, and gums. Digital photos and X-rays will be taken of your teeth to identify areas of decay, cracked teeth and malfunctioning restorations. Our goal is to preserve as much of your teeth as possible by catching decay in its earliest stages. We’ll also assess your gums and recommend the appropriate hygiene treatment for you.
Q: Do you accept new patient referrals?
A: Over the years, patients have given us the compliment of referring family and friends to our practice. The Tooth Doc’s reputation for excellent dental care depends on two things: our good work and your beautiful smile. Your confidence in our care motivates us to continue to strive for excellence. Thank you for your referrals. Your trust and support are greatly appreciated.
Q: I’m looking for an office that doesn’t refer me all over for specialty work. Do you offer all types of dentistry?
A: Our doctors at The Tooth Doc have experience in all areas of general dentistry and it is rare that a patient is referred to a specialist for any procedure. We know that once you have gained trust with us it is desirable to have us do all your dental work. However, patients always have the option to see a specialist if they choose to do so.
