Our first appointments are quick and easy!
You'll be greeted warmly by our receptionist, and she will direct you to the new patient forms. Once you're checked in, a dental assistant will see you in an exam room to review your medical and dental history. You'll also receive X-rays to examine your teeth and jaw.
Then you will meet with your Douglasville dentist and discuss your oral health. Your dentist will evaluate your medical and dental history, check your x-rays, and ask you about any problems you are experiencing.
After the initial exam, your dentist will create a custom plan based on your needs. You will be able to book your next appointment to continue with your treatment.
The primary information to bring to your first visit to Douglas Dental Studios includes:
✔ A list of current medications
✔ Any valuable info concerning your medical and dental history
✔ Your insurance cards and ID
You can also reach out to your former dentist and ask for your past dental records to be sent to our office. This might be essential if you switched to our office after recent dental treatment.
We usually do not include a dental cleaning during the first appointment. Instead, we focus on a thorough exam of your teeth and oral health so that we can determine your custom dental treatment plan and help you get the services you need.
Specific dental problems, such as severe tooth decay, may need to be treated before getting a professional cleaning. Likewise, if we find you have any indications of early gum disease, we'll tailor your dental cleaning with periodontal treatment.
Once your first examination is finished, we can schedule your first cleaning at Douglas Dental Studio as soon as one of our hygienists is available.
Yes. Talking directly with your Douglasville dentist and asking questions can be reassuring for new patients, especially if you have anxiety when visiting the dentist.
If you'd like to talk with your Douglasville dentist and you do not have an appointment, please call us and leave a message with one of our staff. Although our dentists are frequently busy attending to their patients during business hours, they will do their best to call you back as soon as possible.
