New smiles are always welcome! It is our pleasure to help you make a comfortable transition to our dental family. Please contact us today to make your initial appointment or to answer any questions you may have.
Scheduling Your First Appointment
When you call the office we will work with you to find the most convenient appointment time that fits with your schedule. Because we reserve this time exclusively for you, we kindly request that you give 48 hours (two business days) notice if you must change your appointment. This allows us to offer that time to other patients.
Before You Arrive
Prior to your first appointment we will need some additional information from you.
Please use this link to our secure online portal.
The patient forms can also be mailed or emailed to fill out at your leisure and brought to your appointment if you are more comfortable with that. Let us know if you would like them sent to you.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
Because everyone’s mouth and oral health needs are different, your first appointment is focused on thoroughly reviewing your oral health, medical history, and understanding your individual dental health concerns. One of our dental hygienists, Sandy, Julie or Kristy, will review your health history and medications, take your blood pressure, complete an oral cancer screening and assess your periodontal health. They will also take any necessary x-rays prescribed by Dr. Posluszny. In the absence of gum disease, your initial appointment will also include a professional cleaning.
For your information and personal record, your hygienist will note work that has been completed elsewhere and review your smile analysis with you. Dr. Posluszny will then do a thorough examination of your mouth, review your x-rays and provide an initial diagnosis to suggest what treatment, if any, may be needed.
Conversations about treatment options will be explained to you in a private setting. As always, your concerns are our concerns. Please make sure that we know about and address any dental questions you may have.
If you have dental benefits, we are happy to submit your claims for you. It is important that you provide the necessary dental plan information when filling out your new patient forms. Please bring your insurance ID card to your first visit so that we can help you get the best insurance benefit possible. Click here for more information about payment options.
