Your First Visit
Our goal here at Thomas Family Dentistry is to provide outstanding dentistry and friendly patient care in a comfortable atmosphere. As we realize the idea of dental visits are not always pleasant for every patient, making you feel at home is one of our top priorities at your first and all future visits. With two doctors in our office and extended evening hours, we make it easier to accommodate your busy lifestyle.
It is very important to the success of your first visit that you have your New Patient Forms completed and submitted in advance to your appointment time; otherwise, this cuts into the time allotted for you and the doctor to examine, diagnose, treat and discuss your dental needs. We like to utilize every second that we can to address both your personal needs and your dental needs. If you do not have access to a computer, we have one available in our waiting room- we ask that you come at least 20 minutes before your appointment time to complete these forms and sign any papers.
At your first visit, you can expect to be greeted by Shanequa or Amy at the front desk as you enter our doors. Here you will sign any outstanding forms. Once you are all checked in, you will be taken back by your registered dental hygienist (RDH), Leia, Jen or Shelby. At the end of the appointment, you will meet either Dr. Deanna Thomas or Dr. Noelle Peters for your exam where we will discuss any treatment needs or questions.
Once seated with your RDH, any questions, comments or concerns will initially be addressed. We will then take a full mouth series of x-rays and examine the health of your gums to fully understand your dental needs. After collecting all of this information, we will discuss any treatment needs with you and come up with a plan that works for both you and your doctor. Cleanings are done accordingly based off of the health of your gums and amount of buildup.
We want to make it easy to get the dental care you need. We also understand that families today have many demands on their budgets. That is why we have taken the time to provide flexible payment options and patient financing options and why we participate with a number of insurance companies that our patients use. See our Financial page for further information on insurances we accept and payment plans.
