First Visit

At Panoramic Dental, it is our goal to provide the highest quality dental treatment, while making all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible. During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences, and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your dental needs. Our dentists and staff want to make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door. For questions or concerns about your first visit, never hesitate to drop by our Walnut Creek office!

Initial Information & Paperwork

When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. We will also ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. If possible, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any current full mouth and/or check-up x-rays
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

What To Expect

Your initial appointment will last approximately one hour. One of our experienced cosmetic dentists will perform a thorough exam and evaluate any needed diagnostic records, which help in identifying tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. After the examination, our doctors will provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and any proposed treatment. Take-home oral hygiene instructions will also be provided, along with any suggestions to help you care for your teeth.

Dental Treatment

Every patient is different and at Panoramic Dental, we treat each patient individually to address their specific dental needs. At your first visit, our dentist may recommend some of the following treatments:
