Your First Visit
At your first visit, we will review your new patient forms carefully to ensure we have everything we need. If we can, we will try to have access to the records from your previous dentist. We will make sure that if you have dental benefits, we have the most up to date records. You will be seated in a room where you and your provider will review your health history, medications, and any dental concerns and goals you may have.
Once you are seated comfortably, a thorough examination of your teeth and gums will begin, which includes an oral cancer screening, complete set of colored photos, periodontal measurements, and any necessary x-rays. In addition to the above, every existing restoration and any missing teeth are documented. Dr. Groeneveld will review your x-rays and photographs with you and discuss any needed treatment. We will always be as comprehensive as possible to give you the best understanding of you oral health. Dr. Groeneveld will work with you to create a unique treatment plan just for you. We believe in an individualized plan, there is no one size fits all approach to our office.
Upon completion of your first appointment, your next appointment will be scheduled in accordance with your treatment plan. Our staff can also refer you to our financial coordinator to help you with insurance questions and/or financial needs.
