At your first visit, it is very important to us that we get to know you better. It would be our pleasure to give you a tour of the clinic and show you the unique design features intended for your comfort. Our décor has been selected specifically to create a relaxing environment during your visits. We selected our equipment so that you receive the full benefits of the newest technologies that are available in dentistry.
During this visit, we will spend time with you to understand your specific dental needs. At Soho Dental, all our new patients benefit from a comprehensive examination. This examination includes a complete check of your chewing muscles, jaw joint, an oral cancer screen as well as a dental check of your gums and teeth.
We will usually take a full series of radiographs (x-rays) which is very valuable in giving us information about possible cavities that we cannot see just by looking in your mouth. Also, these radiographs tell us about the amount of bone surrounding each tooth which is important in diagnosing gum problems. We will also be taking digital photographs, which help us in diagnosis and treatment planning. These digital images will allow you to have a unique view of your teeth. In this way, our patients are truly partners with us in making the best decisions for their oral health.
After this initial comprehensive exam, we will be able to create a custom treatment plan for you, which will address your dental concerns and provide a time frame for treatment as well as approximate costs.
It would be helpful to us if you would bring a current list of your medications, and provide us with your updated health history. If you have dental benefits, please bring your insurance information so that we can assist you in understanding the details of your plan. We will also be able to submit your claims electronically so that you are reimbursed quickly.
We look forward to seeing you for your first visit with us and we intend to make your experience at Soho Dental truly exceptional.
