Your First Visit With Us
We Are Excited to See You at Incline Family Dentistry!
When you take the steps towards a healthy smile by scheduling your first visit with Dr. Barr, this is what to expect your first time in:
Before your appointment is a great time to get the needed paperwork out of the way. You can call the office to get the paperwork sent to you or you can print it from our website.
At your appointment time, you will start off with one of our hygienists. She will give you a brief tour of our office on the way back to her treatment room. The appointment will start with meeting Dr. Barr and having a thorough discussion of any problems or concerns that you might be having and the primary reason for your visit. Your needs are of the utmost importance to us, which is why we take ample time getting to know you and listening to your concerns. We will then do a review of your dental and medical history and start with an assessment of your oral health. The assessment includes a series of x-rays, an oral cancer screening along with checking your gum and bone health around your teeth.
Dr. Barr will then complete a comprehensive examination which includes reviewing x-rays, checking your teeth, gums and supporting structures, cancer screen and an evaluation of your bite and jaw joint function. When your examination is complete, Dr. Barr will discuss his findings and recommendations for treatment with you. We want you to be well informed of why a dental procedure is recommended for you and the pros and cons of doing and not doing the treatment but ultimately it is your choice on what treatment is performed.
Our office manager, Salena, will then be happy to get you scheduled for your next visit. She will also work with you to help maximize your insurance benefits and explain your personalized treatment plan.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
