Updated: Jun 22
Here's what you can expect at your first visit to Anchor Dental.
Although we think we're pretty friendly and welcoming, many new patients find themselves anxious at the prospect their first appointment with a new dentist.
To provide our patients with the best dental care we can provide, we've found it best to get to know our them, even before we get to know their teeth. It helps us understand each patient's goals, with the added bonus of helping our patients feel a bit more at ease.
Here's what you can expect at your first visit to Anchor Dental:
• You will begin by meeting with your new dentist. They will want to get to know you, and address any issues or anxieties you might be experiencing. You will also discuss your dental history and any goals you might have for your teeth. This is your first chance to ask any questions you might have.
• Next comes a comprehensive exam, which includes regular screening for signs of oral cancer and a standard set of x-rays.
• From here, you and your dentist will discuss what he has found in his initial exam. Together, you will determine what action - if any - they recommend and you choose to take. This is where you will discuss how often you should return for hygiene appointments and future dental exams.
We want to be your lifelong partners in dental health. We believe in relationships, ongoing education, prevention, and working out an individualized treatment plan for each patient – one that will help our patients' teeth last them a lifetime.
