What to Expect at Your First Visit

We know not everyone is excited to see the dentist. But regular dental care is the most effective way to keep your teeth protected, and enjoy a bright and beautiful smile for years to come. If you have scheduled your first appointment with Dr. Chen at Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry, our entire staff will make sure that your experience is as pleasant and relaxing as possible, so that you keep coming back.

Your First Visit

We are happy to answer any questions you may have during your first visit, and show you around the facility if you’d like. If you’ve been to another dentist recently, we may also request that you fill out some very easy forms and supply us with a bit of information, including:

  • Any X-rays or information from your previous dentist.
  • Any medications that you are currently taking, or may take soon.
  • Any medical history that may be pertinent to dental care.
  • Any dental insurance information you have.

Once we have the information, we’ll keep it on file so that you don’t have to keep handing us the same information each time.

Your X-Rays

As soon as you’re brought in for your appointment, it will be time for X-rays. These X-rays allow us to spot any cavities or tooth problems that may have developed, as well as see where your wisdom teeth are located (if you still have them).

You’ll also have photos taken of your teeth for diagnostic purposes, and then receive a full examination from Dr. Chen and his staff. If any tooth problems are identified, or there are risk factors that need to be examined, Dr. Chen will happily go over potential treatment options. If you need a secondary visit for any of these treatments, we’ll gladly schedule that as well.

In some cases, we may also schedule your dental cleaning at this time, which will be given by a highly skilled dental hygienist that we’re sure you’ll like.
