For optimal dental health, we recommend that you have a complete dental exam and cleaning once every six months. This ensures that your teeth are well maintained and any problems are spotted early, before they become of significant concern.
All new patients are seen with Dr. Carlson first where we will take necessary x-rays and she will complete a comprehensive exam to determine the type of cleaning and treatment recommendations, etc. We schedule an additional appointment for the necessary cleaning after the initial new patient appointment.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out necessary paper work. You can save time by downloading the Patient Forms from our website, completing them and bringing them with you to your first appointment. This will assist our dental providers in becoming familiar with your medical and dental history and help us to provide you with the best, personalized care possible.
We do accept x-rays from other dentists as long as they are of diagnostic quality and are current. Bitewing x-rays must have been taken within the past year, and Panoramic x-ray within the past five years. We kindly ask that you complete the General Dental Release form in order for your records to be released to our office from your previous dental provider. Please sign and send this form directly to your previous dentist.
Once again, we want to thank you for selecting our office. We are very excited to become your dental provider! Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any additional questions or concerns and we will be happy to assist you!
