First Visit

What will happen on my first visit?

Please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Referral slip from your referring dentist, if you have one
  • List of current medications, vitamins, and supplements (please note that you can print your patient registration and medical history form on our website.)
  • Insurance card, if you have one 

Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Dr. Doan will complete an in-depth medical and dental history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, gum recession, loose teeth, and other signs of periodontal disease.  Other components may include oral cancer screening, bite analysis, and TMD evaluation. If we do not receive current xrays, these will be taken, as they are essential for diagnosis (note: bitewings are not sufficient).  Dr. Doan will discuss her findings with you and review options for treatment of your condition. Our friendly front desk staff will then assist you with scheduling an appointment and determining if any insurance benefits apply.
