Welcome to our practice! We are excited you have chosen to visit us for a new patient consultation that typical involves a comprehensive oral evaluation, digital radiographs and/or dental cleaning. On behalf of the entire team here at Augusta Dental, we look forward to meeting you and would like to share some information with you prior to your visit.
At your first visit, you will be greeted by our front office team, who will gladly answer any questions you may have and help you fill out any uncompleted paperwork. Then, with the help of one of our experienced dental assistants, we will take and review necessary x-rays, examine your teeth, perform an oral cancer examination and evaluate the health of your gums. We will also perform a dental cleaning (if appropriate and scheduled). A complete treatment plan will be developed, and we will discuss the diagnosis with you in detail and all the treatment options that may be available to you.
Please allow approximately 1 hour for this first visit with the doctor (exam and x-rays) and an hour with the hygienist (scheduled the same day or another day/time).
If any dental treatment is diagnosed, a treatment plan and estimate will be prepared for you prior to beginning any procedures. We will check insurance benefits for you and discuss our practice’s comfortable financial options, if needed.
We encourage you to complete the new patient forms (5 total forms) online to save you the time of completing these forms at our office during your first appointment. Otherwise, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete the forms so you can be seen at your appointed time. We have iPads at the office for you to complete your forms.
We look forward to introducing you to our practice.
