Your First Visit
What To Expect
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.
Your first visit to Riverside Dental Center 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. You’ll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. 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.
- Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to fill out your remaining patient forms. If you have a medical condition that requires premedication, please request a prescription prior to your appointment, or if you are unsure, please contact your office.
- Your teeth cleaning may be performed at your first visit or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. We will make every effort to complete your cleaning right away.
- If necessary, our patient coordinator will discuss and assist you with insurance and maximizing your benefits or financing options, including CareCredit or Smileworks: our in-office discount program. Our team members work with you on payment arrangements, so cost is never a deterrent to doing what is best for you or your family.
