First visit to the dentist?
Here’s what you can expect
A dental appointment doesn’t have to be something to dread! We are committed to making this as smooth and comfortable of an experience for you as possible.
Your first appointment consists of an examination and review of your treatment options. More often than not, we can proceed with your treatment right after the treatment, or schedule it as per your schedule and our availability.
A few things to keep in mind:
- If you have dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Remember that patients aged 18 and below are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Please inform us of any medical conditions you might have that may be of concern before we go forward with your treatment (diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints) and/or any kind of medication that you are currently taking.
- If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays within the last 1-2 years, you may request that they forward them to us, or if you have physical copies, bring them along. We’ll be taking additional x-rays if needed.
You may experience some pain and discomfort after your treatment, but that is to be expected—just remember to communicate with us! You may be assigned medication for the pain, and in some cases, to assist with your treatment.
We know it can be overwhelming, but we assure you that our team at Canyon West is here for you throughout your treatment, upholding the highest standards for dentistry, just as you deserve.
Please reach out to us if you have more questions, or if you are in the need for a dental visit!
Compassionate dentistry is our goal. We want to deliver quality treatments that provide long lasting results.
