Many people avoid going to the dentist because they have a fear of what will happen to them. At Green Dental, we are here to educate you every step of the way to provide you peace of mind about your dental care. Our doctors and staff will give you the highest possible level of service and our focus is on making you as informed and comfortable as possible.
Here is what you can expect to happen during your visit:
As a new patient to our office you will first be greeted by our front office staff. Here you will be asked to fill out all of your patient forms and provide a copy of your dental insurance card if you have dental insurance.
After your forms are completed, you will be offered a tour of our office. You will then meet with one of our financial coordinators who will answer any questions you may have about our office or your dental concerns. Once all of your questions have been answered, you will be introduced to one or both of our doctors.
After you have had the chance to meet our doctors, you will be taken back by one of our assistants or hygienists for your appointment. When you are in the treatment room, the assistant will take a series of X-rays consisting of a panoramic x-ray (full mouth), bitewing x-rays (cavity detecting), and any individual x-rays as needed for isolated areas of concern. They will also take intra-oral photos to show you any areas of concern. One of our doctors will then come into the room and do charting of your teeth (any existing treatment that has been completed elsewhere), and decide if there is any current decay or treatment that needs to be completed. They will also do periodontal charting in order to determine how healthy your gums are and an oral cancer screening.
Once the exam is finished, the doctors will discuss with you the x-rays and photos taken, any treatment that needs to be completed, and answer any additional questions you might have about the treatment.
The assistant will then go over any necessary forms that will need to be signed prior to treatment and any medications that need to be given. You will then be escorted back to the front office and meet with one of our financial coordinators to discuss your treatment options and go over your dental insurance, along with answering any financial questions you might have. They will also assist you in scheduling your next dental appointment.
