Your First Visit
New Patient Forms
For your convenience and optimal Artistic Works Dentistry experience we have made the new patient documents available for you to download. Please complete and return two business days prior to your appointment. However if you not able to complete the forms prior to your visit, please arrive 15 minutes before your schedule appointment time. During this time you can complete all the new patient paperwork and help yourself to a complimentary beverage. For your visit you can print and complete the new patient forms prior to your appointment and bring them with you. (Adobe Acrobat Reader) is needed to download these forms.
During Your Appointment
During your initial appointment one of our clinical care team members will take comfortable fast digital x-rays and pictures of your teeth. Our staff will also check your teeth for decay using Sopro-Life, a laser-assisted cavity detection device. The process is painless and very helpful to us as we do our best to keep treatment conservative.
We will also measure your gums to determine which type of dental cleaning is right for you (cleaning or periodontal (gum) therapy). The dentist will sit down with you to look over your records, examine your mouth, and take the time to discuss any dental concern you may have.
Since we do not double book appointment times, your hygienist and dentist will always have adequate time reserved for you. We hope you leave every visit fully informed about your dental health and treatment options without being rushed.
Additional Dental Treatment
If a patient needs additional dental treatment and wants to get the process started immediately following the new patient appointment, we are able and pleased to accommodate that in the majority of cases. This enables us to fix problems before they worsen, at the same time saving you additional visits to our office. When more extensive dental work is needed, we will explain your treatment and financial options and your schedule at the end of your cleaning visit.
