We welcome new patients to our practice. We will carefully review your medical history and your previous dental history to ensure that we give you the brightest, healthiest, and most attractive smile possible.
Dr. Seal will meet with you first to discuss your specific needs and concerns, after which a thorough clinical examination will be performed.
We will examine your teeth carefully, inspecting each surface and the structural integrity of each tooth. The relationship of the teeth and the bite will be measured. We will also evaluate your lips and the dimensions of your face.
You will be examined for tooth decay, oral cancer, and gum (periodontal) disease. Some dental impressions (diagnostic models) and photographs may also be taken during this initial appointment.
Dr. Seal will review the clinical findings with you and provide recommendations for treatment. In complex cases, a separate follow-up consultation appointment may be required. This allows Dr. Seal to completely analyze all the findings of the examination and diagnostic records.
You will spend approximately 90 minutes in our office at your initial appointment.
Please call our office at 214.361.0883 to schedule your first appointment.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
- Completed New Patient Form
- Any recent radiographs (x-rays)
- Any other dental records
If you require assistance in obtaining x-rays from another dental office, please call us at 214.361.0883 prior to your first appointment. We are happy to assist you in obtaining these records.
In a private consultation, Dr. Seal will review the clinical findings and recommend the proper treatment for your care. It is important that you have a clear understanding of the ideal treatment plan and the expected long-term results together with the time and costs involved.
We believe the ideal treatment to be the most conservative procedures which yield the best long-term result. We will also discuss treatment rationale and alternative treatments to help you in the decision making process.
We want you to be comfortable and confident that you will be receiving the care you desire.
