What Should I Do Before My Visit?

As a new patient, you will want to make sure you have all your teeth and gums ready for an examination by your dentist. It is crucial that you communicate with your dentist beforehand to confirm the appointment. This will minimize your hassles as you will know the dentist is prepared to receive you. Also, ensure you carry your dental records because it will help the dentist know if your dental health is improving or not. Lastly, know some of the dental issues you might have been experiencing since last you visit your dentist.

What Will Happen If I Miss A Visit?

Missing a visit is not ideal, but it happens. If that happens, your dentist will schedule another appointment for you as soon as possible. Your dentist may also attempt to contact you by phone or even mail a reminder card. If they still cannot reach you after several attempts, they may choose not to treat you again until a scheduled follow-up visit. It is wise to find out beforehand what will happen if you miss a dental appointment, so there are no surprises when it comes time for your first checkup and cleaning.
