Your First Visit to Jackson Creek Dental Group
When you visit Jackson Creek Dental Group, we will make sure your experience here is the best it can possibly be. Here is what you can expect when you come to our office for your first dental visit.
You will be welcomed to the office and asked to fill out a new patient packet containing forms we will need completed to help the doctors diagnose and treat your specific, individual needs. You can find these forms on our website and fill them out prior to your visit, or we can mail them to your home.
Once the assistant greets you and calls you back to the operatory, she will go over your forms with you and take x-rays, if needed.
The doctor will then come in to meet you, and talk with you about your medical/dental history, any problems you have had in the past, how you feel about your smile and what you would like to have done in the future.
He will do a comprehensive dental exam, an oral cancer screening, and then determine what type of hygiene appointment you will need. The doctor will also develop an individualized treatment plan for you and then go over it with you in a consultation. Together you will prioritize the plan, including any immediate issues that need to be addressed.
Once you have prioritized your treatment plan with the doctor, you will see his patient coordinator to schedule your next visits, have a complimentary insurance benefits check, and handle payment for your visit.
