At the first appointment, Dr. Walker and her team would like get to know you better by reviewing your medical and dental history forms and may ask questions related to your answers. The examination will follow beginning with checking your blood pressure and a thorough extra and intra-oral cancer screening. Necessary x-rays will be recommended and if you have scheduled an appointment for a cleaning, it will be done at this time. Dr. Walker will spend time reviewing and discussing the findings from the examination and x-rays and will answer any related questions. A treatment plan consultation may also take place during this visit.
During this first visit, in order to allow us to provide you with the most optimal and efficient care, please be sure to bring the following:
Our office staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits if you have provided your current insurance information at the time of your appointment. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
