We hope you are looking forward to meeting us as much as we look forward to meeting you! In order to make your first visit as smooth as possible, we ask that you bring the completed Patient Forms, your Dental Benefit card/information, and photo i.d. with you, and arrive 10 minutes prior to your reserved time.
Dr. Dina is extremely comprehensive and meticulous and wants your first visit to be one of comfort. She believes in thoroughly evaluating your medical and dental health to create a customized treatment plan based on your personal dental needs, so that you have a clear understanding of the steps that need to be taken to reach the desired results. This ensures that our guests are fully informed, there are no surprises, and we have a common goal.
‘What kind of fun things will we be doing during my initial visit?’, you may wonder. Let us tell you! It will include a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, consisting of an oral cancer exam, tooth exam, periodontal (gum) exam, and a full series of dental films (films are imperative for proper diagnosis and treatment planning). If it is determined that you are periodontally healthy, a healthy-mouth prophylaxis (cleaning) will be performed. If you need more in-depth periodontal treatment, we will schedule the appropriate appointment for another day, to ensure we have adequate time to deliver exceptional care. In order to provide this level of quality and answer any questions you may have, we reserve 90 minutes in our schedule for your initial visit, and ask you to do the same.
Dr. Dina also loves kids and believes that great dental habits should start from birth! Therefore, we are happy to see children of any age, and appointments are age-appropriate and based on each child’s cooperation. Our goal is for them to love the dentist…not fear us.
Now, doesn’t all of this sound fantastic?! What are you waiting for…call us for an appointment. Can’t wait to meet you!
