1) Your First Visit
At your first visit, we will give you a tour of the office and inform you on all of our office policies. Included in our policies is HIPPA Notification, outlining that we keep your medical and dental health history private. We will give you information regarding our financial and payment policies. We also want you to know that we sterilize our equipment and keep our work stations clean in order to help protect all our patients from infections.
When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. To fill out the forms before you come to your first visit, please see below.
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
2) Patient Forms
Here at Dr. Peterson’s offices, we like to make things as easy as possible for all our patients! Upon your first arrival, you will need to fill out a few forms to help us with your chart. If you’d like to complete these forms before you get to the office, please download and print the appropriate forms, fill them out and bring them with you.
