    Treatment plan discussion

    Before you arrive

    Once you have scheduled your first visit, complete setting up your account and new patientpaperworktosave time in theoffice later.

    Check-in with front desk

    In the waiting room, you will be greeted by your Patient Service Representative.

    Please come in 15 minutes before your appointment so you have time to completeyourpaperwork, if you have not done soonline already.

    Meet your dental assistant

    You will meet with your Dental Assistant or Hygienist to talk about your medical history. If youhaveany oral health worries or fears, you can feel comfortable sharing them with him or her—your comfortis most important, so we encourage you to ask questions.

    X-rays and/or 3D scans

    After you meet your Dental Assistant or Hygienist, you will be taken to the x-ray room, panoramicradiographs, and/or scanning, based on your needs.

    Panoramic radiographs help your dentist view unerupted or impacted teeth, as well as sinusconditions, and can detectlesions or fractures in the jaw.

    The equipment we use is very low radiation and will help us get a bigger picture of your oralhealth.

    Periodontal charting

    Periodontal charting measures the space between a tooth and the gum tissue next to it to determinethe health of your gums.

    Your Dental Hygienist will gently insert a tool called a probe into this space and use the markingson the probe to measure how deep it can reach.

    Generally speaking, the lower the number the more healthy your gums are.

    Comprehensive exam

    We will complete evaluation of your mouth, we’ll check your teeth, bones, and gums — we want tomakesure nothing is missed.

    There's a good reason why you probably won't receive a teeth cleaning at your firstappointment:Oncewe see the big picture, we’ll talk with you about anything we see and create your care plan. Itcouldbe returning for a denture fitting, it could be solving for a broken tooth, or it could beschedulinga cleaning.

    Even cleanings need a customized approach, and we’ll plan for that. Of course, if you come in withpain, we’ll care for that. Again, it’s all about YOU and what your mouth needs.

    This initial comprehensive exam is a no-risk way to learn the status of your oral health, and tolearn how your Aspen Dental team can help you. If you want a second opinion, no problem – you canobtain a copy of your exam results and x-rays at no charge.

    Treatment plan discussion

    Your dentist will discuss the comprehensive dental treatment plan he or she developed specifically for you. While your dentist will provide the expert guidance you deserve, your questions are always welcome and you always have the final say in your treatment.

    Your treatment plan is designed to prevent small issues from getting bigger and more expensive, so it will address the problems that are bothering you now and may also identify others that could impact your long-term oral health.

    After you’ve talked with your dentist, your treatment plan coordinator will answer any questions or concerns you might have. Here is where you will arrange your next visit. This is also when you can talk about payment options, including flexible, easy financing and how your dental insurance works (insurance is not required).
