So, it’s your first visit to our dental office at Tooth Spa? Many people overreact to visiting the dentist, but there is nothing more comforting than sitting back, closing your eyes, and having someone do all the work for you.
Your first visit to our dentist should be fun, educational, and comforting. Here at Tooth Spa, a Sunnyvale Dentist, we will make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We want you to leave feeling happy and looking forward to your next trip to the dentist.
What to Expect
Your first visit can take longer than usual because our dentists like to get to know our patients and fully understand your needs. The first plan of business is usually paperwork. Personal and work information will need to be kept on record.
If you have dental insurance, it would be helpful to take it with you. You can also find out what you are covered for under your insurance plan. Sometimes tests or images may be taken of your teeth to diagnose and keep a record. Any future work will be discussed with our dentists.
Cleanings & X-Rays
During your first visit, you will receive a comprehensive oral exam and any necessary digital X-rays. Treatment options will be discussed along with a written estimate and explanation.
Treatment will not start until we answer all of your questions.
Completion of your first visit may include cleaning, polish, oral hygiene instruction, and fluoride treatment.
Our job is to make you as comfortable as possible. Our environment is stress-free and relaxing. A good dentist knows that some people get a little nervous entering our offices, but we have been trained with years of experience and we know how to treat our patients. Communication is the key to a solid and healthy relationship with your dentist. Any concerns or issues should be addressed with us so that we can find a solution. These visits should not be painful, but fun and enjoyable.
Child’s First Visit
Children should see a dentist by their first birthday. Depending on your child and his or her personality, they may enjoy the chair and atmosphere of a dentist’s office. Toddlers should visit a dentist early on so as to build confidence and trust in their dentist.
As they grow older, they can walk in and jump straight into that reclining chair. Our dentists know how to treat children and give them a positive light on visiting the dentist’s office.
Schedule Your Visit
No matter what age you are, your first visit to Tooth Spa in Sunnyvale, California will be filled with information. You should learn new things, get to know the new technology, and gain trust and confidence in our staff.
We aim to provide a pleasant experience that will make you and your family look forward to future visits.
