Seeing a Dentist for the First Time
Are you nervous because you will be seeing a dentist for the first time and don’t know what to expect? When you arrive for your first appointment, you will be greeted by our receptionist who will provide you with the new patient intake form. You can relax in our waiting room, watch TV, and enjoy a coffee while you fill out the paperwork.
Once you’ve completed the paperwork, the doctor will perform a thorough cleaning and evaluation of your x-rays. Your dental and medical history will be discussed and an oral exam will be performed to check the soft tissue, gums, teeth, and existing restorations for decay. If necessary, we will suggest a comprehensive Buffalo dental treatment plan that’s right for you.
Seeing a Dentist for the First Time | Meeting the Doctor
We always address immediate problems and provide recommendations for maintaining long-term oral health, so minor issues today don’t turn into larger issues in the future. As a dentist, I believe that good dental care begins with open communication, so your first visit will help us get acquainted with one another, and give me the opportunity to learn about your goals and desires for your Buffalo dental treatment.
Seeing a Dentist for the First Time | Questions
If you have questions about our Buffalo dental treatment options, I always encourage patients to make a list ahead of time so you don’t forget anything on the day of your appointment. Include any concerns you might have or any oral health problems you have been experiencing.
As an experienced Amherst dentist, my patients are my top priority, and I am happy to take as much time as needed to ensure I’ve addressed all your concerns. I look forward to meeting you at your first visit!
