Patient Forms, Map, and Directions to Auburn Office
Your first visit to Innovation Family Dental establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page.
The first step of the initial visit involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform your doctor if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell the doctor the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform the doctor of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help the doctor to select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
The next step usually involves taking a series of x-rays. If you have had recent x-rays taken at another office, please bring copies of them to your appointment, or contact your previous dental office and have them send the records to us by email or fax. We will be unable to obtain any records from a previous office without your consent. In additon, the doctors may request we take additional x-rays if the previous series of x-rays are unclear, incomplete, or out of date. X-rays in our office are only taken so we can diagnose and treat your conditions to the best of our ability.
After reviewing your medical history and X-rays, the doctor and hygienist will examine your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues and explain the current condition of your oral health. Through the use of a special camera, we have the ability to take pictures of anything unusual we see. We can show and discuss these pictures with you to help you have a better understanding of your oral conditions. For patients who present with good dental health and have attended regular six month checkups, we can usually complete a cleaning at this time. For patients who have missed regular checkups or present with teeth or gums in a state of disease, additonal appointments may be necessary to completely treat your conditions and return your mouth to a state of good oral health.
Please help us be prepared for your first appointment by completing the forms below. Download the forms to your computer, print them out, complete the forms, and bring them with you to your first appointment. If you prefer to complete all forms at our office, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete forms.
