first dental visit



We Look Forward To Meeting You

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be your dental health care provider. We promise to work hard to ensure your first visit is the prelude to a mutually trusting and long relationship. At your first visit, our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, to provide you with an honest assessment of your dental health, and to help you understand any treatment you require.

How To Prepare

Quality dental care requires a team effort. We understand your first visit to a new dentist can be stressful. The following are a few suggestions to help you relax and to help us maximize Dr. Wong's time to address your dental health needs.

  • Schedule your first appointment on a date and time when you'll be most relaxed.
  • Complete your new patient information form prior to your appointment. Bring this form along with your dental insurance card (if applicable) and present it to our front office staff.

  • Arrive a few minutes early to your appointment.

What To Expect

The following is a summary of what to expect as a new patient to our office. Your first visit should take approximately 1.5 hours.

  • Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by our friendly front office staff. After we process your patient information, you'll be escorted into one of our private operatories.
  • Dr. Wong will greet you and listen to your dental health needs, concerns, and expectations. The dental examination will only begin after all your questions have been answered and you are completely comfortable with proceeding.

  • We will take required x-rays. We offer digital x-rays with instantaneous results at 90% less radiation than traditional radiography systems.

  • Dr. Wong will perform a comprehensive dental examination. This involves a screening for oral cancer, a tooth-by-tooth charting to identify and record the current condition of your teeth, and periodontal charting to assess the condition of your gums.

  • We will provide you with an honest dental health report based on your x-rays and dental examination. If needed, Dr. Wong will use an intra-oral camera to provide you with a video tour of problem areas. She will then outline the procedures required to address your dental health and discuss any alternatives and/or options.

  • Dr. Wong will perform a comprehensive general cleaning on your teeth.

  • If additional treatment is required, you will be presented with a treatment plan and an estimate. We'll schedule your next appointment for preventive care or for a respective procedure from your treatment plan.
