New Dental Patient Information – Dallas, TX

A Smooth
Road Ahead

Going to the dentist can cause a lot of people to feel nervous, especially if they have never been to the dental office before. That’s why we’ve outlined everything you need to know ahead of your first appointment below. You’ll find answers to almost all of your basic questions, and if there is anything else you’d like to ask us, we’d love to hear from you, so be sure to give us a call.

Your First Visit

After a warm greeting by our front desk team, you’ll be escorted to the back where an assistant will take some X-rays of your mouth. You’ll then meet Dr. Henry, who will spend some time talking about your dental history and what you hope to accomplish with our dental office. He’ll perform an exam, go over his observations with you, and discuss possible treatments. We’ll verify your insurance ahead of your appointment so you won’t even have a bill when it’s time for checkout!

Patient Forms

By filling out our patient forms before your appointment, you’ll help our team keep your already short wait to an absolute minimum. Plus, we’ll have a chance to verify your insurance so you can save instantly on your care. Just be sure to bring the completed forms with you to your visit!
