What to expect at your first appointment
Dentistry has come such a long way, even over the last few years, making procedures quicker, less painful, and more effective than ever before. However, at NYC Smile design, we understand that going to the dentist may be a stressful experience for you. To answer your questions and put any fears to rest, we schedule a consultation where we show you the office, let you meet the doctors and their team, and set aside extra time for you to talk with your dentist before you start any treatment or procedure. Your initial consultation is specifically designed for you to discuss your smile makeover needs and overall dental health goals. We encourage you to take this time to ask any questions you might have regarding your smile and any dental health concerns. It’s possible that perhaps you may not be sure of what procedure you want or need in order to improve your smile and overall oral health. Therefore, our cosmetic dentists will take the time to sit down with you and explain the options that are unique to you. Together with your dentist, you will have a custom treatment plan designed to incorporate one or more procedures to specifically address your dental needs.
The minute you step into our office, you are welcomed by our very friendly team members who will assist you in settling in for your first appointment. You will be asked to fill in some forms regarding your health history. This is important at your consultations because it is designed to aid the doctors with ascertaining your medical and dental health respectively allowing them to carefully and correctly diagnose what may be the root of your concern in the first place. We realize that the only way for you to truly know the quality of cosmetic dentistry we are capable of giving you is by actually seeing examples of our dentistry. To put your mind at ease, we have an extensive photo gallery with numerous before and after photos for you to flip through while in the office. Once settled in, you will be accompanied by our dental assistant to a private room where they will take complimentary diagnostic photos. These records are taken so that you and the doctor can have a detailed view, allowing an evaluation of your concerns together. This is your opportunity to have a comprehensive one-on-one discussion with the doctor regarding any dental concerns you may have.
At this time, when you sit with the doctor, it’s important that you freely express yourself. Our doctors genuinely care about how you feel about your smile and want to hear about your teeth, your concerns, and what your dental goals are. They want to about learn what you imagine your perfect smile to be. Once the doctor has a clear understanding about what you want to achieve, recommendations will be made to you including everything you dislike, and determine the procedures necessary for your dental health. It is important that you ask any questions you may have about the treatment and procedures, even if you think it may be irrelevant or silly. It is important that you are clear and understand everything about the anticipated treatment so that you can make the right decision for yourself to avoid any miscommunications later. Once you have decided on the course of treatment you will proceed with, the doctor will explain the procedure in detail, and you can begin to lay out a timetable to get from your initial consultation to your perfect smile.
After your discussion with the doctor, our financial coordinator will review with you the financial aspects of the treatment plan you have just decided on and, will provide you with a printed treatment plan estimate detailing everything you and the financial coordinator have reviewed. For your added convenience, payment options will also be offered to help you obtain the dentistry you deserve.
After you have reviewed the costs involved and have decided which payment method would be most comfortable for you, we will then proceed to schedule the first appointment towards completing your desired enhancements.Our mission is to fuel the self-confidence and quality of life for all, full circle.
