What To Expect At Your First Visit
CopperMine Dental Studio looks forward to meeting you and doing everything possible to make your first visit as easy and beneficial as possible. A healthy, confident smile is important to your health and well-being. By helping you take care of problems and pain now, we can help you avoid more serious and expensive issues down the road.
We are very proud of our unique office and think you will like the setting. To help you become familiar with the office we like to give new patients a tour of the office. This helps to break the ice and make you feel at home while at the dentist.
Following the tour, the staff will obtain new xrays to allow the dentists to better evaluate and diagnose any potential problems. Unlike what you may have experienced at other offices, taking xrays at CopperMine usually consists of standing in our xray machine and having a digital xray taken. The benefits of our process is reduced radiation as well as better comfort because we do not need to place the xray tabs in your mouth, you simply bite on a plastic bar. We are sure that you will be pleasantly surprised at the ease of taking your xrays.
After reviewing your x-rays, your dentist will discuss your dental and medical history and the reason for your visit. The dentist will then perform a thorough oral exam and suggest a comprehensive treatment plan that’s best for you. This is important, because seeing the full picture helps you make the best decisions about your care.
You’ll hear the term “comprehensive care” often at CopperMine Dental Studio. It means that the doctors do more than just fix the immediate problem. They examine your entire mouth, recommend treatment options for long-lasting oral health, and work with you to pick which treatments suit you best. While many office try to “sell” dentistry to their patient we prefer to educate.
Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive oral care – that means taking care of immediate problems and preventing small issues from getting bigger and more expensive.After the doctor completes your exam, our Treatment coordinator will meet with you to answer any questions, discuss payment options, and work with you on the best treatment plan for your needs. The Treatment Coordinator works closely with the doctors and will be your best resourse regarding recommendations the doctors may have.
When you are done meeting with the Treatment Coordinator you will be afforded an opprotunity to schedule any recommended treatment. The Doctor and the Treatment Coordinator will work together to schedule the most critical treatments first to avoid larger problems int he future.Also, following your first appointment, you will be appointed a 6-month follow up appointment as part of your Preventive Maintance Schedule.
After your first visit, you’ll take our complete evaluation with you, along with the cost of your treatment, and the date for your follow-up appointment.
If you have any questions during your visit, or if there is anything you don’t understand, team members of the CopperMine Dental team are happy to help.
Your doctor and the rest of the CopperMine Dental team look forward to finding your smile.
