If you are thinking about scheduling an appointment with us or you’ve recently scheduled an appointment, we hope you’ll find this information useful in understanding what to expect during your first visit to Dr. Jeffrey Fink’s office.
Preparation for your appointment begins with completing the medical history paperwork and listing all of your current medications. You can download new patient paperwork from our website to complete ahead of time, or you can fill it out in our office. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment if you choose to complete the paperwork in-house.
We begin your appointment by taking a complete set of digital X-rays. This enables us to see whether problems are present that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Your appointment includes a check of your gums for signs of periodontal disease, as well as an oral cancer screening. You will receive a professional teeth cleaning from one of our registered dental hygienists, followed by a comprehensive exam by one of our dentists.
We will create a full treatment plan based on your unique needs, and will offer several options designed to address any dental issues you have. We also will share information on treatment costs and payment options.
At the end of your visit, we will file insurance paperwork on your behalf, and you will be responsible for any portion that your insurance does not cover.
We will schedule any follow-up appointments necessary to get you on the road to optimum oral health. We look forward to meeting you in person very soon!
