Your First Visit Is All About You
Your New Patient appointment will last about two hours. At this first visit, we will sit down with you to talk about your dental health needs and goals and go over your personalized Smile Evaluation to help you create your own individualized treatment plan.
We will review your dental and medical history and perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and airway, including an oral cancer screening.
We will take x-rays of your mouth unless you have provided us with x-rays that are less than a year old. After our doctor evaluates you, our hygienist will perform a dental health cleaning that is specific to your oral health needs.
We have onsite parking in the covered garage attached to our office. Please park in one of our 3 reserved spots on the second floor. They are clearly marked with the Bayfront Dental logo just to the left at the top of the ramp. If these spots are occupied, proceed to the 3rd floor or above. Please do not park in any other spots on the second floor. Please bring your parking ticket with you to the office and we will validate it for you.
You will receive a text message and email to confirm your appointment, making it effortless for you to confirm promptly!! Just respond "C" to the text message or click on the link in the email you receive--it's that easy.
We don't mean to bother you, but we will continue to contact you by text, email and phone call until your appointment is confirmed, and if we are unable to reach you 48-hours before the appointment, we will remove you from the schedule.
Keep in mind that we do have a 48-hour cancellation policy for New Patient appointments. If you must make a change, kindly contact us 48-hours in advance to avoid a fee.
We work with all PPO and regular dental insurance plans. If you have dental insurance, we will verify your eligibility and benefits for you. This is a service we provide to all our patients and is not a guarantee of payment by the insurance company.
If you have any questions about your appointment, feel free to call us at 305-530-1866.
PATIENT INFORMATION FORMS
Before you arrive, we will send you the link to our Patient Information Forms. Please complete the forms prior to your first appointment, so that when you arrive, you’re ready to go! If you’d rather complete the forms using pen and paper, that’s okay too! Simply print out the forms and fill them out at home. Completing your forms in advance will save you time, and allow the doctor to see you on schedule.
On the day of your appointment, remember to bring the following with you:
- Your insurance card
- Your Driver’s License or other form of Photo ID
- Your completed Patient Information Form
Kindly give us 48-hours’ notice should you need to change your appointment, so that we can allocate that time to another patient.
