First Dental Appointment | Rockford IL
Initial Appointment, Schmidt Dental
Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Usually, treatment will not be started the same day as the consultation, unless it is an emergency visit. This allows us to formulate a treatment plan and have a discussion about what will be done at the next appointment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. Please note, Drs. Schmidt require a full mouth set of x-rays to properly and completely diagnose any treatment. If you have not been a patient at our office previously and the x-rays you bring with you are not current or readable we will need to take them here.
