Pacific Dental Care and Fastbraces® is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then, one of our incredible dentists will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, check your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. Most of the time, at this same visit, one of our talented hygienists will clean and polish your teeth. If by chance you have a case of gum disease, this first visit will usually be one to discuss cleaning options that can be done at the next visit.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form (or complete online)
- Your insurance card (if you have dental insurance)
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes. Our goal is to get you out within an hour so you can go enjoy the rest of your day. However, we will spend the necessary time to create a comfortable and informative visit. We want everyone in our family of patients to have the best visit possible. Every visit.
