Preparing for Your Appointment
Whether you're bringing your child in for their first dentist visit, or preparing for your first appointment at Southern Heights Dental Group, we're honored you've trusted us with your dental health needs.
Your first appointment will help us get to know you, and your teeth, a little better. During your initial appointment, one of our hygienists or dental therapists will perform a teeth cleaning and x-rays. You'll also meet with one of our dentists, who will examine your teeth and provide you with any recommended treatment options.
A couple of helpful things for you to bring along to your first appointment:
- X-rays taken by a previous dentist. If you have recent x-rays from another dentist or physician, you may request that they forward them to our office or you may pick them up and bring them to our office.
- List of medications you are currently taking. This includes, but is not limited to, heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc...
- List of any medical conditions. Prior to treatment, lease alert our staff of any medical conditions that may be of concern. This includes, but is not limited to, diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc...
- Dental insurance information. If you do not have dental insurance, ask us about our Quality Dental Plan (QDP).
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
