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.
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.
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.
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.
