Your First Visit

New Patients

The Patient Experience

If you are a new patient who is just coming to see us for the first time, we are so excited to have you! To start off your treatment, your first visit will consist of a thorough review of your medical history as well as X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and a periodontal exam. We will also take intraoral photos to get a thorough picture of your dental situation.

In order to ensure that your visits to our office are as efficient as possible, we have introduced the option of completing your new patient paperwork in advance for your convenience. After scheduling your new patient visit with us, you will receive a text message from Edwards Family Dental containing a link to the paperwork, which can be easily completed digitally.

What do I need for my first visit?

To help get us up to speed on your dental needs, please bring a complete list of medications that you are currently taking. It is also important for you to bring any insurance information that you have. If you have any areas of concern or anything that you would like to discuss, we will cover this during your first visit.

If you have any questions about your insurance or coverage prior to your appointment, feel free to give our front desk a call. We can give you a better idea about what your insurance will cover.

If you have any conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, or anything else that may be affected by dental medications or surgery, please let us know right away. The more we understand about your dental needs, the better and more equipt we will be to treat you.

Whether you haven't been to the dentist in quite a while, or are simply just switching locations, we are very excited to have you as a new patient. If you have any questions or concerns prior to seeing us, or just want to schedule your first appointment, give us a call today.
