What you can expect at your initial appointment.
Dear prospective partner in your dental health,
The doctors and the care enabling staff here at MirrorDentistry work as one team to provide care. We believe that the best results are achieved when the patients can fully trust the dentist and the dental office may also place their trust in the patient.
We look forward to becoming your partner in health where you trust us to do the best for you and we trust you to take diligent care of your health. Firstly, we strive to achieve a good mutual understanding of what is the optimal way to help you, we then proceed with the work. This way we can ensure that the best possible results will be achieved for your needs.
You can expect your initial examination to include necessary x-rays, an evaluation of gum disease, an assessment of tooth decay, a TMJ evaluation, an assessment of your oral habit control, an airway analysis and a dental development and growth evaluation.
Our registered dental assistant (RDA) will greet you and perform some of the necessary data collection in order to prepare your doctor with as much information as possible before he/she sees you.
If you have medical/dental records from another office please share them with us or let us know where the records are ahead of time so that we can request them prior to your arrival.
Your doctor will then discuss diagnosis and treatment options with you and both estimates and payment options will also be discussed with the treatment co-coordinator. You can expect to be at our office for about an hour and a half for the full examination. Please feel free to bring your family members to assist you in your decision making. Please complete (electronically if possible) the medical and dental health history forms either found on the website, provided in the app or received in email. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email, text or call us.
In the case that you are unable to maintain your scheduled appointment time, we need a commitment from you to let us know ASAP – with at least with 48 hours notice if possible, as we have reserved this time especially for you.
In closing, we would like to again emphasize that caring is our calling and is impossible to achieve without your help and trust. Achieving the right care level in dentistry never happens on accident but is accomplished through the mutual trust and commitment of all – our skilled doctors, caring staff and wonderful patient. We look forward to meeting you.
Sincerely, The MirrorDentistry Team
