Your first appointment will be set up as a dental cleaning which will include:
- – Soft tissue exam and oral cancer screening
- Charting of existing teeth & dental restorations
- Digital x-rays (may be transferred from your previous office)
- Consultation and treatment options presented as well as treatment plan established.
If the patient requires a more extensive type of cleaning after the evaluation is done an alternative treatment date may have to be scheduled.
A treatment plan will be established outlining necessary care with the number of appointments necessary, as well, financial options to cover any out-of-pocket investment. If dental insurance is being utilized, benefits will be incorporated and discussed. If the treatment plan is extensive, sometimes it is necessary to send a predetermination to your insurance company for an accurate cost estimate.
