What To Expect
Your first visit to Associated Dentists establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Our providers have specifically reserved time in their day for your appointment. We respect your time, so also appreciate you respecting theirs. If you must reschedule or cancel an appointment , please notify us as soon as possible, so that we can offer that appointment time to other patients needing to be seen. Cancellations within 48 hours of your appointment are considered failing your appointment, because it is difficult for us to fill that slot with short notice. Cancelling appointments may result in restrictions on the day of week or time of day that you can schedule appointments. We always call three to four days before your appointment to remind you, but we recommend that you also write your appointment in a day planner or calendar or enter it into your cell phone to remind you.
State-of-the-art technology coupled with one-on-one personal attention - that describes Associated Dentists in a nutshell. From that first toddler's check-up right on through adulthood, we can handle all of your dental needs right here. Our doctors, hygienists and entire staff will make your appointment as comfortable as possible.
If you have insurance, your estimated co-insurance is due at your appointment. If you do not have insurance, full payment is due at the time of service. We accept HSA cards, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa, as well as Care Credit, debit cards, and personal checks.
