Your First Appointment
When you arrive, you’ll receive a warm welcome. We invite you to participate in an individualised tour of our spacious facility. We’ll discuss your current concerns, complete your new patient paperwork and review your dental and medical history. Here’s what you can expect during your new patient exam:
- Digital X-rays and photos
- An oral cancer screening
- An assessment of your teeth and existing dental work
- An examination of gum tissue for signs of periodontal disease
- A jaw joint and muscle evaluation
- A check of your occlusion (how your top and bottom rows of teeth fit together)
Following your exam, the doctor will review the results with you and discuss recommended treatment options, if any. You’ll receive a cost estimate, and we’ll answer all of your questions. Your subsequent appointments will be set up at dates and times convenient for you. If you require a follow-up treatment planning session, we’ll provide it at no cost to you.
Payments & Insurance Information
At our Hinton office, we accept the following forms of payment: cash, Visa, Debit, and MasterCard. If you have insurance, we are happy to participate in taking assignment for your convenience. Ask one of our administrative team members today how this may be of great value to you!
If you experience a dental emergency, we provide same-day service in most cases. Call when your emergency occurs and we’ll ensure that you receive the prompt attention you deserve.
