At the Tisdale Dental Group, we want to ensure your visit is easy and enjoyable for everyone involved. We are always striving to provide the best treatment possible. Knowing what to expect on your first visit will help you understand how we can treat you better.
On your first visit to our clinic, one of our two receptionists will greet you upon arrival to the front desk. They will then assist you in filling out a personal health history questionnaire. This is a confidential history required by our office to better understand your personal information and your health history to provide you with the best treatment possible.
Many patients book a dental cleaning at this first appointment. If you have an appointment, one of our two hygienists would then take you into their treatment room to perform an oral health assessment and initial cleaning. Occasionally, a second cleaning appointment is required based on your dental needs.
Following the cleaning, you will be brought to the dentists' operatory where radiographs will be taken. In our office, the doctor will personally see you in one of their dental chairs for a thorough dental exam. The dentist will not only look at your teeth, but also your gums, tongue, soft and hard tissues. After the exam, treatment options, and treatment time will then be discussed as well as any questions or concerns you may have to allow you to make an informed decision regarding your oral care.
You will then proceed to the reception area where a financial estimate of the treatment plan is presented to you and discussion of insurance coverage and treatment options are reviewed. When you are happy with your treatment plan, appointments can be scheduled at your convenience. We are more than happy to you assist you every step of the way and look forward to providing you the best treatment possible.
