Your First Visit
Has it been a while since you’ve been to a dentist? You might be feeling anxious, even concerned about your oral health. First of all, great job on making your first appointment with Azalea Dental! We’re glad you took the leap and decided to commit to your dental health.
At Azalea Dental, we believe that educating our patients about dentistry and their options inspires them to take an active role in their health—which includes anticipating how your first visit will go.
Typically, your first appointment with your dentist in Summerville, SC will start with a visual examination of your teeth and gums, along with a thorough dental cleaning. We will take digital x-rays so we can have a full set in your patient files.
What Should I Bring to My Appointment?
We love information! If you have any previous health records, bring them in. We do ask that new patients bring the following:
Bring your insurance card if you have dental insurance, this will help our dental staff work on getting the maximum benefits for you.
If you have any x-rays from your former dentist, please bring them with you. Requesting a copy of your x-rays is as easy as calling your previous dental office and asking them to send the files directly to us.
Let us know what medications you are taking; we’d like to know what kind of medication and dosage.
Do you have any allergies or medical conditions? Let us know so we can update your patient records.
