Your First Visit
It’s always such a pleasure for us to welcome new families to our dental practice. We enjoy getting to know each of our patients, and it all starts with your first visit to Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl.
We want you to get the most out of your first appointment with us, so here’s some helpful information to keep in mind.
Completing Your Paperwork
When you become a patient with us, we must first gather some information from you. You can visit our forms page to find everything you need, but don’t hesitate to call us if you have questions!
It’s best if you can download and fill out your forms before you arrive at our Pen Argyl dental office. That way, we’ll have your information available, and you can relax before your appointment.
If you can’t complete your paperwork, please plan to arrive 15 minutes early, so you have plenty of time before your appointment.
Meeting Your Dental Hygienist
Along with your dentist, your dental hygienist can help keep your smile healthy so you can avoid cavities and gum disease. When you first arrive, you’ll meet your hygienist who will get you settled in the dental chair.
Comprehensive Dental Exam and Cleaning
We start by checking the condition of your teeth and noting any areas of concern in your patient history. We’ll look at your gums for signs of infection because gum disease can develop without you being aware of it.
Next, we’ll perform comprehensive teeth cleaning to remove all the plaque and tartar from your teeth. The final step is to polish your teeth to remove surface stains and leaves you with a clean, fresh smile.
Reviewing Your Oral Health Needs
If we find any dental problems that are developing, we’ll work with you to set up a plan to resolve them and restore your oral health. We’ll decide together what treatment is right for all your needs, including your budget.
Before you leave our Pen Argyl, PA dental office, we’ll discuss how your dental insurance applies and explain our financing options.
Please call us to schedule your first dental visit with us. We look forward to welcoming your family to Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl!
