Your First Visit

Oakwood team

Welcome to Oakwood Dental! We are happy you have chosen us for your dental care needs. We pride ourselves on providing high-caliber, world-class dental care with a friendly, small-town feel. We look forward to getting to know you during your first appointment and providing you with exceptional oral healthcare.

Please look over the following information to ensure you know what to expect and are prepared for your first appointment.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

Your first visit is important to us. This appointment gives our dentists and team the opportunity to get to know you, talk with you about your medical history, and learn all about your smile goals.

New patient appointments typically include a consultation, examination, and a discussion about the next steps for your treatment. We might also perform a thorough teeth cleaning during general-purpose first appointments.

Depending on the records we receive from your previous dentist, we might also recommend taking a set of digital dental X-rays to screen your teeth for potential signs of oral health concerns that are not visible to the naked eye.

How To Prepare for Your First Appointment

To ensure your first day as a patient of Oakwood Dental goes smoothly, we ask that you arrive prepared with the following information or send this information to our office before the day of your appointment:

  • Insurance cards and information
  • Copies of recent dental X-rays
  • A list of current prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, supplements, and vitamins you take
  • A list of any medical conditions that might be of concern to our dentists, such as high blood pressure, heart valves, joint replacements, etc.

Additionally, our new patient forms are available online for you to complete at your convenience before the time of your appointment. If you have not completed these before your first appointment, please arrive a few minutes earlier so that you have ample time to fill out these forms.
