New Patients: Your First Visit
Most of our new patients have not been to the dentist in awhile. But even if you’re up to date on your routine checkups and cleanings, are you sure your dentist is doing all he or she can to keep your whole body healthy?
The first time you visit us at Ballard Neighborhood Dentist, we will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any related anxieties you may have about dental care. To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations and needs are for treatment. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth, will be addressed immediately!
Nervous about the dentist? Have a child with you? We provide tours of our office upon request to take the uncertainty out of your visit.
We Don’t Rush Your Care
Please reserve approximately 80 minutes of your time for your first visit with us. First, we will take a set of x-rays to provide a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, including the roots of your teeth and your jawbones.
A dental exam will follow to evaluate your oral health and then one of our hygienists will continue with a preventive dental cleaning.
Finally, Dr. Sidhu will determine whether you need any type of restorative treatment and even show you the findings of our high resolution intraoral camera!
We make every effort to provide the highest quality dental care for you and your family in a comfortable, judgment-free environment. We never pressure our patients into treatment they don't want or need, and we encourage you to take an active role in your oral health.
