What to expect at your first visit
private, and secure intake form.
Congratulations! You’re well on your way to joining a dental family that will put your oral health at the top of the priority list. We want your smile to be the best it can be – for life! It’s not easy to choose a new dental care provider for your family … but rest assured that you’re in good hands with our team of experienced professionals. We encourage your to browse this page for answers to your questions about what to expect when you come see us at KindStar Dental for the very first time.
First, we need to find out a bit about your medical history. This information is important because it will help determine which treatment options are right for you. After all, our mission is to provide the best possible care for you. If your medical history is complex, our team may need to modify treatment. For your convenience, download, complete, and submit our Intake Form before coming to see us.
If you have further questions about recommended treatments or how to better understand your insurance policy (or complete documents), our team will gladly help. From general questions about options, to sending predetermination to your insurance provider, to signing up for new-patient specials, we want to make sure all your important questions are answered and you know you’ve got it covered. If you ever have more questions, just give us a call.
Your first hygienist appointment will be longer than most, even if you had regular appointments before coming to us. But that’s just because we want to get to know you before we treat you. We need that extra time to create a mouth-map to track changes over time, making it possible to more-accurately determine your oral health needs and concerns. We’ll also scan for oral cancer and assess you for TMJ (jaw joint) issues. Your hygienist is a “patient-education specialist” who will happily help you with the knowledge necessary to take care of your teeth at home.
Your chance to meet our friendly team and get a close look at our comfortable, convenient, state-of-the-art practice. You will see our spacious reception area, front desk, restroom locations, comfortable hygiene care rooms, and more. If you’re feeling nervous about visiting the dentist … please seriously consider coming for this quick tour that will begin to effectively alleviate your anxiety.
Meet the doctor and discuss your personal oral health needs and desires. Here you’ll learn what we find while we work with you to determine the personalized approach that works best for you. Whether we set up a regular care schedule, design a treatment plan to address decay or gum issues, or discuss your cosmetic concerns, this is your chance to tell us what you like and don’t like about your smile and general oral health. Then we work with you to help you meet these goals.
At KindStar Dental , in addition to digital x-rays, we use a small pen-sized camera – called an intraoral camera – that we use to show you what we see when we examine your mouth. Used to both check for issues and give us a baseline for future care, all of our diagnostic equipment is digital and set to emit the lowest amount radiation – as much as 90% less radiation than with old film x-rays.
