What can I expect at my first dental appointment?
When you arrive for your first dental appointment, expect to be greeted warmly by name by our friendly front office team members. They will check you in and collect and any forms you’ve completed. If you haven’t yet filled out your paperwork, please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before your appointment.
You will then meet with Dr. Shipp and your dental hygienist. They will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums and note any areas of concern. This information is the beginning of your patient record with us, so it’s important that we take our time.
If you need dental treatment, Dr. Shipp will explain why we recommend it and how it will benefit you. We’ll design a treatment plan that meets your needs and discuss insurance and financing options.
If Dr. Shipp gives you a clean bill of health, we’ll help you schedule your next teeth cleaning and exam in six months. If you need additional dental work, such as a cavity filling, we'll get you scheduled for the appropriate services before your next preventive visit.
Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you have about your first visit to our Columbus, MS dental office.
