Your First Dental Visit – New Patient Information
Your comfort and satisfaction are important to us from the get-go—and that starts here, with an explanation of what you can expect at your first dental visit to Dentistry at East Piedmont.
Life is busy, so we think dental care should be easy! But more importantly, we are committed to getting to know you as a person and not just a patient.
What to Expect
On your first visit, you will meet with our patient coordinator to discuss how we can best serve you. We will also take digital photographs of your teeth and smile, along with any necessary x-rays. From there, you’ll go on to a serene, relaxing treatment room to start your new patient experience where:
- One of our expert hygienists will perform a complete periodontal exam
- Either Dr. Buxton or Dr. Patel will perform a comprehensive exam, complimentary oral cancer screening and spend time with you reviewing the findings
By the time you are finished with your new patient visit, you will already be a part of our family of patients. You will also have an assistant who you know on a first-name basis to walk you through treatment and be available for any on-going questions you may have.
We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your first dentist visit—just call (770) 321-5558, write, or ask your dentist.
We look forward to meeting you!
