Adult Patient First Visit

If you're an adult joining our practice for the first time, your first visit will be a chance to evaluate your dental health and discuss any possible treatments that could improve your smile. Your Denver dentist will take x-rays, perform a thorough oral exam, and evaluate your diagnostic records to uncover any problems in your dental health, then we'll provide you with a detailed summary of any current problems and our recommendations for treatment. After discussing the treatment options with you, we'll provide personalized instructions for at-home oral hygiene as well as any other suggestions that may improve your oral health.

Your Child's First Visit to the Dentist

If this is a child's first visit to our office, we won't do much in the way of providing actual dental treatment – instead, a child's first dentist visit is a chance to get the child acquainted with the dentist's office and ensure that the teeth and jaws are developing normally. We recommend bringing your child in for their first after a few baby teeth have erupted, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. During the visit, your Golden dentist will perform an oral examination to ensure that the teeth, jaws, and face are developing normally, as well as to evaluate the health of any erupted baby teeth. Your dentist may then demonstrate techniques for proper at-home oral hygiene and answer any questions you may have.

What to Bring to Your First Dentist's Appointment

We know your time is valuable, and we strive to make the appointment process as streamlined and convenient as possible. To help expedite the process, we ask that patients please bring the following information to their first appointment:

  • Any insurance or health information forms
  • Your dental insurance card (if you have one)
  • Any panoramic x-rays taken within 6 months of the appointment
