The first time you visit us at Lorton Town Dental, we will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any anxieties you may have about dental care.
To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations and needs are for treatment. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth will be addressed immediately!
What To Expect During Your Appointment
Before you even step foot in our local dentist office, your personally assigned, highly-trained Lorton Town Dental patient coordinator will contact you to answer any specific questions you may have about your visit, your treatments, and our dental practice.
They will coordinate your first visit and help you to smoothly navigate the steps involved. This will include providing you with access to the forms we will need completed prior to being seen by our Lorton dentists. These forms can be mailed to you, emailed to you, or we can help you locate them online.
Second, when you come for your visit, our friendly receptionists will welcome you and connect you with the members of our dental team involved in your treatment.
Depending on the nature of your visit and planned treatment, you will likely be escorted and seated comfortably in our private dental hygiene area. It is here that one of our professional, highly-trained hygienists will thoroughly evaluate your mouth with the aid of the latest, high-tech diagnostic dental equipment. The results of this evaluation will be documented for your record.
Based on your unique situation, this evaluation may include:
- A periodontal examination and screening
- Caries detection (to help evaluate the presence of carious lesions, cavities, and other issues)
- Oral cancer screening and detection
- Digital radiography of the entire mouth
- A neck and head examination
After these important diagnostic dental evaluations, we will likely perform a thorough teeth cleaning and possibly a debridement of your teeth and gums.
