Consultation Appointment vs. New Patient Appointment
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your teeth or oral health and would like to speak to a doctor before getting any form of exam done, then you would book a consultation appointment.
If you would like a complete oral exam you would book a new patient appointment. At your new patient visit, the hygienist or dental assistant will take digital photographs of your teeth and smile, as well as any necessary x-rays. Then the doctor will evaluate these images and will take a thorough exam of your teeth and mouth. Your doctor will let you know of all the findings and will create a treatment plan based on what you will need. Here you have the opportunity to discuss your questions and concerns.
The treatment coordinator will then discuss fees and financial options for you. We offer a few financial options such as Care Credit, GreenSky, and Lending Club. We are currently in the process of customizing our own dental membership to help those without insurance.
Then you will schedule your treatment as planned. If you would like, you can have your cleaning done the same day as your new patient visit. Depending on the doctor's finding, we will let you know which type of cleaning you will need.
