What to Expect at Your First Visit
During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your current desires. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. You may download forms to printout and bring with you to your visit, submit them online, or arrive 15 minutes before you appointment to fill them out in the office.
Also, please assist us by providing the following information:
- Any bite-wing or panoramic X-ray taken within the past year.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card/information. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your payment responsibilities.
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Dr. Steinberg will perform a thorough exam. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth. Generally, X-rays will be taken, allowing Dr. Steinberg to examine your mouth for tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. These diagnostic records will help Dr. Steinberg provide an evaluation outlining any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. We encourage you to ask questions. We'll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.
We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
