How To Prepare for Your First Visit

Please plan to arrive about 15 to 20 minutes early for your first appointment so that we can take care of all the necessary paperwork before your dental appointment begins.  Be prepared to answer questions about your dental and medical history and plan to bring:
  • Your driver’s license or other official identification
  • Your dental health insurance card and your medical insurance card
  • Previous dental x-rays from another office (if applicable)
  • A current list of all medications and supplements you are taking
  • Completed new patient forms
To save a bit of time during your first visit, we invite you to download and fill out our new patient forms from our website before your appointment. However, we have these forms available in our office for you to complete at the time of your appointment. 

What To Expect During Your First Visit

Your first visit is all about getting acquainted and establishing your care. During your first appointment, our front desk team members are here to help you take care of all your new patient paperwork to ensure we have a thorough medical history, patient file, and everything necessary for a simplified billing process.  During your first dental exam, Dr. Zalesky and our team spend time getting to know you, talking with you about any concerns you might have with visiting the dentist, such as dental anxiety or fears, and discussing your dental health goals.  Our dentist then examines your teeth and gums to establish a baseline of your dental health. Depending on whether we received dental x-rays transferred from another dental clinic, we might also recommend taking a fresh set of dental x-rays to screen for signs of problems that might not be visible to the naked eye.  We then get you started with a treatment plan and at-home care regimen designed to help you stay healthy and achieve your smile goals.
