New Patients and First Visits

Searching for a dentist in the Las Vegas area who you can be comfortable with is an important part of scheduling regular visits for the care and cleaning of your teeth. After all, if you are not at ease about coming in for your dental appointment, you may be tempted to cancel it. If that happens, you place your teeth, gums, and smile at risk. If you are a new patient and you are worried about your first visit with us, we encourage you to contact our receptionist with any questions that you might have about our Las Vegas dental practice. You can also peruse our website for any additional information that you might want.

 

First Visits at Smiles Today Dental

We want all of our dental patients, here in Las Vegas, to feel like they are part of our family, which is why we greet everyone with a friendly hello. Our office is attractively designed and provides sufficient seating for all of our visitors.

 

New Patients and First Visits

The first time that you visit, you will be required to complete a series of new patient papers. In addition to basic information such as your name, age, date of birth, contact information, and place of employment, you will be asked for your dental insurance information, a brief health and dental history, and preferences regarding fillings. A form containing our privacy policy will be given to you for your personal records.

 

Additionally, during your first visit with Smiles Today Dental, our hygienist will ask you if you are currently experiencing any problematic issues. This is an important part of your exam since the hygienist will make note of the problem on your chart, check into it herself, and bring it to the attention of the dentist who is handling your first visit.

 

Dental Insurance and First Time Patients

During your first visit to our Las Vegas dental office, we will request to see your photo identification and dental insurance cards so that we may make copies to keep in our records. If you do not have dental insurance, you do not need to worry about this. Likewise, if you are using your medical insurance for a particular dental treatment, you will be expected to provide both your photo identification and medical insurance cards at the time of this initial visit.
