You’ll have the chance to meet your doctor and our team members, and we’ll take the time to review your medical and dental history thoroughly. This visit is all about getting to know you and ensuring that we provide personalized and exceptional care that meets your specific needs. To make the most out of your visit, we’ve streamlined our process by offering online forms, so you can fill them out at your convenience before your appointment. Get ready to embark on an exciting journey towards a brighter and healthier smile!

Step 1: Your Appointment

When you arrive, our friendly team will greet you, check you in, notify your oral health team of your arrival, verify insurance if applicable, and guide you through any necessary new patient paperwork. You can save time by completing the new patient forms in your appointment confirmation email before you arrive.

Once completed, a team member will escort you from the waiting room to a treatment room, where they will review your dental history, medical history, and any dental health concerns or issues. The Dental Assistant will take X-rays, allowing us to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position, and tooth condition.

Step 2: Your Exam

As a new patient, your initial comprehensive exam will last approximately one hour. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals for your dental treatment. Upon completion of your examination and review of X-rays, we will review the findings and results with you. Our practice focuses on technology and has the advantage of an intraoral camera to give you a 3-D video tour concerning tooth areas if needed. Our Dentist will discuss recommendations and procedures and outline an individualized approach specific to your dental health.

Step 3: Your Hygiene Visit

On your first visit, you may not receive a cleaning. A cleaning may be completed after the doctor ensures the appropriate treatment for your oral health.

Our Dental Hygienists will review your mouth and gums and conduct oral cancer screening. If appropriate, our Hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. Your Hygienist may clean your teeth manually with traditional tools or use an advanced water-powered instrument based on what is best for your specific needs. Finally, your Hygienist will review tips for caring for your teeth and preventing gum disease. Your hygiene exam should take about 45 minutes, and you will leave with a toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste to keep on track with your home health routine.

New Patient Forms

At Walker Dental Group, we strive to make your appointment as seamless and stress-free as possible. That’s why we offer our patient forms online to help you prepare for your upcoming visit. Completing these forms before your appointment not only saves you time but also guarantees a smooth check-in process. However, if you’re unable to print and fill out the forms, no worries! Just arrive 15 minutes early, and we’ll provide you with everything you need to complete them in our office. We’re committed to providing you with the best dental experience, from start to finish!
