Your initial appointment is used to obtain a complete dental history and evaluate your present dental condition. The ultimate goal of our office is to preserve your natural teeth for life and maintain your oral health at an optimal level.
As a new patient, please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. On your first visit, Dr. Katie Tulipano and team will do a comprehensive oral exam and x-rays. After the exam, we will make our recommendations and discuss the treatment options available based on your needs. You will be given a written treatment plan and an estimate. If you have dental insurance, we will try to calculate your insurance benefits as they relate to your treatment plan. Financial options will also be discussed at this time.
New patients often want a cleaning to be done on their first visit. We offer different levels of cleanings depending on your oral health. Your level of cleaning will be determined and discussed at your initial exam appointment. However, in some cases, the cleaning appointment may be scheduled directly after the initial exam. Our scheduling staff can help you determine if this may be an option for you.
We encourage you to voice any concerns you may have regarding a treatment plan, financial arrangement. Our team also welcomes your questions about the latest advancements in dental technology. We understand that comfort, good appearance and economy are of prime concern and we will do our utmost to ensure that these needs are met.
