You’re nervous, unsure, and just hoping to be able to get through it quickly. Every new patient who walks into Serene Oaks Dental feels the same way about their first visit with us, and we know it! It’s because we understand these feelings that we have worked hard to make the new patient experience easy, comfortable, and downright enjoyable.
When you call our office to make your 1st appointment with our team, we will try to schedule an appointment for you within 48 hours and usually we can get you in the same day! We know that waiting and anticipating your visit can add to your stressful feelings, so we will get you into the hands of our friendly team as swiftly as we can.
Our new patient coordinators, Holly and Peggy, are hygienists. They will guide you through your first visit. Photographs, necessary x-rays, charting, and then an exam with the doctor can be followed by a cleaning by your helpful guide and, we hope by now, your friend.
We know “doctor speak” can sometimes be confusing and hard to follow especially when you are feeling nervous so we have made it super easy. The team will review their findings with you by using a video screen and an iPad that you can hold and use to refer to if you have any questions about what you are seeing.
We want to be your partners in your dental care and that requires clear and easily understandable communication on our part. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions and express any concerns or worries.
We will also be able to review all of your financial information and check into possible insurance payments. And we will schedule any further appointments right there and then.
