What to Expect
Your initial appointment at Smileboston will typically be a 90-minute hygiene visit or consultation (time based on your needs). Your first visit and dental consultation helps you to know that you are at the right dental practice and create the best dental plan to meet your needs and expectations. You will have the time to discuss what you want to achieve from your dental treatment and what can be done to get you there. This is your one-on-one opportunity to get answers to the questions you may have about treatment, timelines, and final outcomes.
At your hygiene visit, you will see one of our amazing Registered Dental Hygienists for thorough care. Your appointment will include a dental cleaning, initial X-rays (when needed), an oral cancer screening, and a periodontal evaluation. A comprehensive dental examination with one of our doctors follows as well, allowing us to gather further information and create a detailed treatment plan tailored to you. Working together we will outline the various treatment options available to achieve your personal goals.
Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your visit:
- Complete your Patient Registration form. Do not fill out anything you feel uncomfortable answering, as we will get that from you during our personal conversation. If you are unable to fill out the form online, we can mail or email it to you. If applicable, we will ask you to come in early for your appointment and we can assist you in filling out the form.
- Your referral slip and any x-rays if applicable from a previous office.
- A complete list of medications you are currently taking.
- If you have dental benefits, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save you time and allow us to help you process your claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.). If pre-medication for an existing condition is necessary when receiving treatment, please take medication prior to your appointment. We will not be able to complete a comprehensive check otherwise.
If another office has already taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to Smileboston at [email protected], or you can bring them to your consultation. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
