Below is an overview of what you can expect during your first visit to Sunridge Dental Care.
Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make your care as individual as you are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of your medications and their dosages (including vitamins and supplements).
A comprehensive oral exam and x-rays will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
If you haven’t been to a dentist for a while, please don’t worry. You’ve made an important decision – no need to feel guilty!
Once your exam is complete, Dr. Roukema or Dr. Henry will talk with you about his findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well.
After you schedule your appointment, we encourage you to download and print our new patient forms, so you can fill them out at your convenience. You can fax or mail them to us, or bring them with you to your first appointment.
