Here at Oral Health Associates, we understand the trust it takes to choose a new dentist. Dr. Gardner, Dr. Glime, Dr. Adam Koch, and Dr. Brian Koch are committed to making each patient’s visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. They are happy to walk you through the steps of your visit, and if you have any questions, feel free to communicate with them or any of our friendly staff. Here is the essential information for your very first visit.
On your first visit to our office, you will need to complete forms for health history and insurance before we can start treatment. We also have a variety of forms for you to fill out to familiarize yourself with our particular location. If you like, you may bring your health records from your previous dentist. Remember to also bring in proof of dental insurance if you plan on using those benefits.
Once the paperwork is complete, we can get you in for an initial exam with one of our dentists. Our associates will evaluate your dental and medical history before taking digital images of your teeth. This helps our dentists to look for signs of any issues, such as periodontal disease or jaw problems. With the information and images in hand, we will then discuss individualized treatment plans as necessary. This initial visit takes around one hour.
If you have any questions regarding our policies, procedures, payment plans, or treatments, please do not hesitate to ask us. Our entire staff is happy and willing to provide the honest answers you are seeking. We believe open communication allows us to serve our patients better, so ask away!
