First Visit Expectations
If you’re like most patients, you appreciate being informed before arriving at the dentist. Below is an overview of what you can expect during your first visit to Distinctive Dentistry.
Let’s get to know each other
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 and 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 full-mouth series of x-rays and a comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
You’re in great hands
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, please don’t worry. You’ve made an important decision and we’re glad that you’ve trusted Distinctive Dentistry with your care!
Once your initial exam is complete, Dr. Gemmell or Dr. Jaros will discuss their findings with you. With your goals and concerns in mind, together you can create and effective plan that best meets your dental needs. We can prioritize and stagger your treatment to give you the smile that you deserve in a timeframe that you can afford.
Our entire team goes above and beyond to keep you comfortable and smiling during your time with us. So come in, recline, and unwind – you’re in great hands.
