Dependable Dental Care Options
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
Your initial appointment with Ward Dental Care is to complete your examination, necessary radiographs, photos and diagnostic models, if required. Kindly bring your insurance information and your health history, as well as a list of any medications you are taking. We also ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes early to fill out the appropriate paperwork for your first visit.
During this appointment, our staff will take radiographs utilizing state-of-the-art digital radiography, which uses as much as 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray methods. Then, our team will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, jaw muscles and joints and also an oral cancer screening.
Cleanings and Appointment Cancellations
Children's teeth cleanings can often be accomplished in a single visit to our location. Adults may sometimes be scheduled a second, separate appointment for cleaning. This is because the health of a person's gums can vary greatly, because up to 80% of all adult dental patients exhibit signs of possible periodontal disease. As a result, the particular type of dental cleaning you need can vary, depending on the current state of your periodontal health.
Appointments options are reserved for you, so that we may concentrate on your care without any outside distractions. We ask that you make every effort to attend your appointment time, but in the event that you cannot keep your appointment, please provide our office with 48 hours advance notice to avoid a cancellation fee. This also allows us to see other patients who are in need of dental care and can be moved in to your appointment time.
