What to Expect
When you first arrive, you will be asked to fill out a few forms. These forms help us get to know you, your relevant medical and dental history, and what types of dental treatment you might benefit from. We recommend arriving a few minutes before your appointment to give yourself enough time to complete this necessary paperwork. You can save time by printing the following forms at home. Just give them to our office staff once you arrive.
X-Rays and Images
Each initial visit begins with a series of digital x-rays to provide Dr. Walpole with a clear picture of your oral health. Some x-rays are designed to provide us with a broad, overall picture of your mouth, while others are more detailed and show us the areas between your teeth not visible to the eye. We use the latest in digital x-ray technology to minimize radiation exposure to our patients while maximizing the clarity and diagnostic quality of our images. We also take a series of pictures of your smile, facial profile, and your individual teeth. In this way, you see what we see! We want you to be informed as to what’s happening in your mouth, and these photos can help. They also provide a reference if you have any desire to change the alignment, spacing, or appearance of your teeth and your smile.
Dr. Walpole will begin the examination by reviewing your medical and dental health history, as well as any specific concerns you may have regarding your teeth or your smile. He will check for cavities, measure the gum pockets around your teeth, and review any findings with you using the x-rays and images taken. If your dental concerns have more than one potential solution, Dr. Walpole will discuss each option with you, as well as the pros and cons of each. At Bright Choice Family Dental you’re in the driver’s seat. We will show you what we see, discuss your options, and help you find the solution that works best for you.
Consultation and Treatment Plan
Our goal is to help you take care of any immediate concerns you have first, then address the small problems before they turn into larger, more expensive issues. We are committed to working within your budget to help you find a solution that will work for you. After you discuss your treatment options with Dr. Walpole, our front office staff can go over your treatment plan and answer any questions you may have regarding insurance and finances for your treatment. They can also assist you in scheduling your next visit.
