Going to a dentist can be an overwhelming experience, especially first-time visits. Let us put your concerns and anxieties to rest. Our goal is to make sure you have a comfortable and pleasant experience.
Dr. Michael Schiffman D.M.D. and our team perform a complete oral examination and discuss any treatment you may need. The examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer.
Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit, or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.
Your first appointment will take between 1–1½ hours. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
To make your visit as pleasant and brief as possible, there are a few things you should bring with you.
If you've had dental x-rays in the last six months, please bring them to your first appointment. If you don’t have them, plan on biting down on that little cardboard thingy. New x-rays will be taken.
With just a few simple forms, we’ll ask for relevant medical history, any medications you might be taking, your dental history, and any dental insurance coverage you may have.
You may download and print forms, then fill out and bring the completed forms with you on your first visit.
If you have any questions while completing your forms, please call us at 610-432-2841.
If you prefer to fill out your forms in our office, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.Download First Visit Forms Here
