First Visit Experience
Your first visit at our East Harlem, Carroll Gardens, or Midtown dental office is one of our most important moments together.
It’s a chance for us to get to really know each other, build a relationship of comfortable trust, and establish a baseline from which we can plan the future of your smile.
Come right in (after a temperature check, and COVID questionnaire, of course) and grab a cup of coffee or tea. If you forgot to fill out your paperwork online, you can do it on one of our iPads while you listen to music.
Before you know it…
…we will be whisking you back to one of our comfortable chairs where your hygienist will begin your assessment including:
- A full series of x-rays & intra-oral photos
- Periodontal charting and home-care questions
- A complete and comprehensive exam of your teeth, soft tissues, head, and neck including a TMJ assessment, oral cancer screening, and sleep apnea evaluation
After the assessments are completed we do a thorough cleaning. Once your teeth are all shiny, the doctor completes the exam and we will sit down for a chat to discuss and review your assessment so you have a clear understanding of your overall dental health.
If there are issues, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan.
And don’t worry.
We will never rush you or dismiss your questions.
We want you to feel 100% confident as you move forward in your smile-health journey with Wellspring Dental.
