DeSoto Dental is committed to making new patients feel welcome and cared for. Not only do we value your time, we value your smile! Anxiety and stress is often a result of not having the right information about what dental procedures, exams or treatments entail. At DeSoto Dental, our goal is to educate patients on not only the benefits of proper oral health care, but how dental procedures and services are conducted. This is to help keep anxiety levels low and our patients' comfort levels high. Our mission is to ensure new patients at DeSoto Dental are not overwhelmed with lengthy paperwork, but if questions arise during the paperwork process, the friendly staff is there to help. The goal is to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your initial paperwork process, and dental visit. For an added convenience to our new patients, new patient forms can be completed online, to ensure you are ready for your first visit
During Your Appointment
During your first appointment you will meet with one of our talented dental hygienists. In most cases, digital x-rays will also be done. X-rays are used to help identify and diagnosis oral health issues that cannot be seen with the naked-eye. These images are a critical aspect to maintaining your oral health, allowing DeSoto Dental to provide a comprehensive dental care plan that fits your specific needs. The hygienist will also check your teeth for signs of decay. As a continued preventative care measure, our hygienists will discuss how you can continue to care for your gums by discussing periodontal (gum) therapy methods. Once your exam, x-rays, and cleanings are complete, the dentist will visit with you, review your charts and answer any questions you have regarding your oral health.
At DeSoto Dental, we aim to give patients a personalized dental experience by providing an adequate amount of time during exams and procedures. We value your smile, making your oral health a priority. Contact our office today to find out more information about our family, cosmetic and implant dentistry services or to schedule an appointment.
