Information for New Patients

At the Vancouver Dental Spa, we're always happy to welcome new patients into our dental family! Here's some information about what to expect at your first visit to our office.

Your initial appointment at the Vancouver Dental Spa will consist of the following:

  • medical and dental history review including a current blood pressure reading
  • any necessary x-rays (radiographs)
  • periodontal (gum) examination
  • examination of the teeth & review of X-rays
  • bite and TMJ (joint) evaluation
  • head/neck examination including an oral cancer screening

Depending on scheduled time, your current periodontal status and general oral health, a dental cleaning may or may not be performed at this initial visit. One size does not fit all when it comes to health care.

Once we have collected all of the pertinent dental information we will share our findings with you. We will explain our diagnosis and the treatment options.

In some cases, treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require further evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment.

Dental X-Rays

If your previous dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office, or we can request them on your behalf. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office.

Please provide the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • any x-rays (if applicable) from your previous dentist
  • complete list of any medications you are presently taking and have been prescribed by a Physician
  • any over-the-counter medications or homeopathic supplements
  • if you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication.

We're looking forward to seeing your smile! Contact our friendly Vancouver dental team today to get started with a consultation.
