We are always excited to meet new patients! Your first visit to Kensington Natural Smiles involves a few special steps so that we can get to know you. Please read through this page in order to better understand what you can expect.
When you come in for your initial visit, please be sure to bring the following:
- Dental insurance card
- Copy of your records
- List of current medications
Please arrive early to fill out your initial paperwork if you have not already done so. If you need antibiotics prior to dental work, please take them as prescribed. If you are not sure if you need antibiotics, please contact your doctor prior to your visit.
During your first visit, our doctors will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help you achieve the healthy smile you have always wanted. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about your treatment options when you come into the practice.
If you have a special occasion coming up or just want to brighten your smile, whitening may be a great option to consider. Whether you need a cleaning, a filling or even a brand new smile, we are here to help. Great dental care doesn’t just make for a fantastic smile, it also helps promote overall health and wellness. We want you to have the confidence to share your smile with the world!
Your Child’s First Visit
It is recommended that a child have their first dental check-up by the age of 1. Informing your child about their first dental visit is very helpful. At your child’s first visit, we will review the medical/dental health history form with you. We will get to know your child and help them to feel comfortable in the office by explaining what will happen during their visit, and showing them the tools and instruments we will use to help keep their smile healthy.
We encourage parents to accompany their child during their visit. This gives you an opportunity to see us working with your child and allows us to discuss dental findings and treatment needs directly with you. A thorough head and neck examination and evaluation of the teeth and gums are performed. Radiographs (x-rays) are taken only if necessary. If no treatment is needed, the teeth will be cleaned and a fluoride treatment will be provided.
When you come in for your initial visit please be sure to bring your dental insurance card and arrive early to fill out your initial paperwork if you have not already done so. We look forward to meeting you and your child for your first appointment!
