Your New Patient Appointment
Going to a new dentist for the first time can make some people feel nervous or uneasy. At Persimmon Dental Care, we want you to think of your first visit with us as meeting a new friend. We’re not just here to treat your teeth: we’re here to make dentistry something that’s tailored to your individual priorities.
Your very first appointment will be with our Dublin dentist. We’ll want to learn more about you, what dental concerns you may have, and your goals for your smile.
After reviewing your medical and dental history, we’ll take a series of low-radiation digital x-rays to evaluate all areas of your smile. Next, our dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and their condition… including your periodontal health.
Co-Plan and Co-Diagnose Your Treatments
We will use a high resolution intraoral camera to show you specific teeth and any findings that we’ve noted. This information, along with your x-rays, allows you to partner with our dentist to plan out any necessary treatments. This entire appointment will usually take about an hour.
Let us know what your long-term goals are – whether it’s what you want your dream smile to look like, or if you want to address a few problem teeth that have always been a burden. We’ll tailor your long range oral health plan to meet your concerns on the timeline and budget of your choosing.
Planning for Follow Up Visits
Should you require any treatments, our front office manager will coordinate scheduling and financing information (including insurance benefits) to create a detailed plan estimate. With this information, you can phase treatments out according to your needs and timelines… not ours.
Persimmon Dental Care is happy to discuss a diverse array of treatment solutions with you, so that you can select the best one for your needs. If you struggle with dental anxiety, ask about our sedation options. Call us today to schedule your initial visit!
