LandMark Dentistry is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care in a relaxed atmosphere. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. It is our goal to make you feel comfortable during your appointments, while providing you with the best possible care. We also know that it is difficult to see a new dental provider. To help take some of the uncertainty out of your first visit we have some information on what you can expect.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, your hygienist and doctor will review your dental and medical history forms, take radiographs and photographs of your teeth and mouth, and do a comprehensive exam including an oral cancer screening and a periodontal health evaluation. The hygienist will typically complete an initial preventive therapy (cleaning) during this visit, but please note additional visits with the hygienist may be necessary depending on your diagnosis.
Once the hygienist has completed the initial phase of your visit, one of the doctors will meet with you to discuss the gathered information and work with you to create your own individual treatment plan. Of course, any questions you may have for the hygienist and/or doctor will be answered. It is our intent and goal, at the first visit, to welcome you to the practice and make you feel comfortable with our team.
In order for the team to provide you with the most individualized treatment plan and best possible care, we kindly ask that you allow 90-120 minutes for your fist visit.
Things to remember for your first appointment:
- Please arrive 15 minutes early to ensure all necessary paperwork and check-in procedures have been completed by the business team.
- Your new patient forms are available under the New Patient tab. Please print these and complete prior to your fist visit.
- If you have an extensive medication regimen, please bring a complete list of your medications.
- Please bring your insurance card and photo ID
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist a minimum of every six months for your preventive visit (cleaning and examination) in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Depending on your individual diagnosis the doctor may suggest that we see you more frequently throughout the year.
