Your first visit to a new dentist can be a little bit overwhelming. Let us put your concerns to rest. Our goal is to make your first visit — and every visit after that — pleasant, positive, and comfortable.
What to Expect
Dr. Mantena will perform a thorough oral examination to identify any conditions that may be present including tooth decay and periodontal disease. At El Dorado Town Center Dental, we also take the time to perform an oral cancer screening at every visit. This exam will be followed by a consultation about the findings and any treatment recommendations.
We may also clean your teeth during your first visit, or you might be scheduled for a follow-up appointment depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.
Your first appointment will take between an hour and an hour-and-a-half. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
What to Bring
To make your visit as pleasant and brief as possible, there are a few things you should bring with you.
If your previous dentist performed dental x-rays during the last six months, bring these to your first appointment. Don’t worry if you don’t have them. We’ll simply take a new set.
The few simple forms at the bottom of the page are important since they provide us with your relevant medical history, a list of your current medications, your dental history, and information about your insurance coverage. These forms take only minutes to fill out, and when you download them and fill them out ahead of time, you’re giving yourself a great head start!
