Your First Visit
We love welcoming new patients to Elegant Smiles Dentistry! Our goal is to streamline your first visit so that you get the most out of your time with us.
What to Bring to Your First Appointment
Please bring your insurance card and driver’s license. If you have current x-rays, please arrange to have them emailed to us beforehand so we have them available for your first exam.
We request that you fill out your forms online to save time when you arrive for your appointment. The less time you spend filling out paperwork at our office, the more time we have to devote our attention to you.
First Impressions Matter
Your first visit to Elegant Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry sets the tone for our future interactions with you. Positive first impressions are crucial, so we go out of their way to ensure that every detail of your visit with us is perfect.
When you arrive for your visit, you will be welcomed by Helen, Keisha, or Candy who will introduce themselves and help you get started with your paperwork
If you’re turned off by the cold, clinical atmosphere of some practices, we think you’ll be delighted when you enter Elegant Smiles Dentistry. We have recently upgraded our reception area to resemble a warm, cozy living room, so you can take a few minutes to grab a cup of coffee or bottled water while you relax and complete your paperwork.
Meeting Our Team
Your first stop is with our dental hygienist who will introduce herself and take a few minutes to review your medical and dental history, discuss your concerns, and answer questions. Next, your hygienist will take x-rays as necessary, chart your teeth to note their condition. Depending on how much time we have, she will also perform a thorough cleaning and review proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Next, you will meet Dr. K, who will introduce himself and chat with you for a few minutes to get to know you. We respect your privacy, so if you have specific concerns, we have a consultation room where we can close the door and sit down together to talk privately.
Dr. K will discuss the results of your exam and cleaning and talk to you about a plan for treatment that is personalized specifically for you and all your unique needs. If we find you need significant work, we will take one step at a time and guide you comfortably through the process.
Reviewing Your Financial Options
Meanwhile, your hygienist will chat with the front desk staff so that by the time Dr. K walks you back to the reception area, they will already be working out the details for you. Your hygienist will meet with you again in the consultation room to review your insurance and the financial aspects of your treatment.
We Look Forward to Meeting You!
We believe that after one visit you will feel confident that you have found your new dental home at Elegant Smiles Dentistry. Please call our office at (972) 735-8900 or use our convenient online contact form so we can get started!
