If you are a new patient at our practice, your first step will be to schedule an initial consultation. During this visit, we will evaluate the current condition of your teeth to establish a baseline of your dental health and develop a treatment plan if necessary.
We understand that if you haven’t seen a dentist in a while, you may feel embarrassed or worried about the state of your teeth. Rest assured that our team is here to help, not to judge. We are committed to restoring your teeth to the best possible condition, improving your oral health and overall well-being.
Here’s what you can expect during your first visit to our office:
As with any new medical provider, you will be required to fill out some paperwork. We will ask for basic information such as your name and address, as well as your health and dental history. If you have dental insurance, be sure to bring your insurance card with you. If you are transferring from another dental office, we can assist you in requesting your records be sent to us.
You will be taken to an examination room where a dental hygienist will perform a basic examination and take notes for Dr. Scott. He will then perform a more thorough examination, evaluating your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw bone for any issues such as cavities, enamel erosion, and receding gums.
During your first visit, we will take x-rays of your teeth to gain more information about your dental health. The images will show us areas that can’t be seen by the naked eye, such as cavities or the health of your jawbone.
Conversation Between You and Dr. Scott
Dr. Scott will want to know what you hope to gain through dental treatment. Are you looking for better oral health or do you have cosmetic concerns such as teeth straightening or whitening? This conversation will help us understand your goals and develop a treatment plan that works for you.
Dr. Scott will formulate a treatment plan. This plan will outline the best course of action and necessary steps to get the desired results. If you require more in-depth dental procedures, we will schedule additional appointments.
If you are looking for a new dentist in the area, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Benjamin Scott at CU Dentists. We are committed to providing you with personalized and compassionate care. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
