Finding a new dental office can be a challenge. You want to make sure you're recieving the quality care you deserve. Luckily, Eagle Creek Dental Associates in Indianapolis, Indiana can satisfy all of your dental needs. Below is a detailed guide for what to expect during your first visit with our dentist:
It can be easy to forget when you scheduled a dental appointment. But now we'll remind you with a "Smile Reminder" via email or text message, and even provide driving directions if it's your initial visit. Just click on the link below to let us know how you'd like to be contacted. We'll do the rest!
Consultations are a great opportunity for you to meet our dentist and get to know him better. Our dentist can talk to you about the different procedures that we offer and how you can benefit from them.
Since this will be your first time at Eagle Creek Dental Associates, it’s important that you complete New Patient forms. These forms will take some time to fill out, so we recommend coming to your appointment about 20 minutes early. If you prefer to fill these forms out before your appointment, please refer to the following link:
Disclosing your health history is essential. Evaluating your medical history allows our dentist to have a better understanding of your dental care needs. The more details about your dental history you provide, the easier it is for our dentist to get to the root of the problem.
All first-time patients undergo a comprehensive exam. A comprehensive exam allows our dentist to set a solid course of action to address any discomfort you may be experiencing. Please feel comfortable sharing any questions or concerns you may have with our dentist.
X-rays are a great way to diagnose problems that may otherwise go unnoticed. Any tooth decay, abscesses, impacted teeth or jawbone damage will show up on an x-ray. The details x-rays provide could make a big difference for your overall oral hygiene.
Once the comprehensive exam and x-rays are complete, our dentist will provide you with solutions to your dental irregularities. Through a comprehensive treatment dental plan, our dentist can resolve the issues that affect your oral hygiene. Since we develop each treatment plan based on your specific needs, it’s important that you are clear about your expectations from the start.
We send smile reminders to you via text or email to notify you of your appointment and to confirm it as well. We want to take away the stress of remembering when your next dental appointment is.
