What to Expect from Your First Visit
We all know that going to a doctor, especially for the first visit, can be a little intimidating and make us a bit nervous. At Family Dentistry in Mason City, Iowa, we want to alleviate that stress and anxiety you may be feeling by providing you with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. When you visit our office, you are like family, so we strive to create a relaxing environment for you and your family.
When you arrive at our Mason City dentist office, we will ask you to take some time to fill out our new patient questionnaire. For your convenience, we have the new patient forms (adult and child) available online for you to download and fill out prior to your appointment. Because we need to make sure we have a thorough understanding of your medical history and any allergies to medications, these forms are extremely important. Having a full picture of your overall health will help our team provide you with the best possible dental treatment.
We will also need to have your up-to-date insurance information on file, so we ask that you bring a copy of your dental insurance card with you to your appointment. If anything changes, be sure to give us an update once you’ve become an established patient with us.
For your first exam, we want to be as complete as possible so that our Mason City, Iowa, dentists can give you the best possible treatment for all of your oral health needs. This examination will take approximately one hour and will include an assessment of your teeth, gum, jaw alignment and soft tissue. We will also take x-rays to identify any areas of infection that may need treatment and hard cast models of your bite may need to be made. A blood pressure check and oral cancer analysis will also be included in the exam. We are dedicated to making sure that we have a full picture of your dental health.
