The first visit to our office is designed to get you better acquainted with all we offer as well as introduce you to Dr. Diefenbacher, Dr. Sieber, Dr. Donovan and our caring team.
In order for your appointment to go as smooth as possible, we kindly ask that we may receive your most recent dental radiographs, and know the dates of your last complete oral examination and cleaning.
Your first appointment at our office is called a New Patient Exam (NPE). It is a very complete and comprehensive oral examination that includes odontogram (tooth charting) documentation, periodontal (gum) probing/measuring, soft tissue exam, oral cancer screening, extraoral examination including lymph node palpation and occlusal analysis. Your unique treatment plan for your oral health will be presented and discussed with opportunity to ask questions.
Please acknowledge that after we may not be able to complete your cleaning depending on the length of the appointment, and a second appointment with a hygienist may be necessary.
Please arrive for your first appointment at our office a few minutes early. This gives enough time to fill out your Medical History forms, as well as a tour of the office. Thank you for your confidence in our office, we look forward to assisting you with all your dental needs.
