Arrive at least 15 Minutes Before Your Appointment
When you visit us for the first time, our team will take comprehensive records of your health history so that we have a clear picture of your oral healthcare and your needs. We will ask you to fill out our New Patient forms and we are always happy to address any questions or concerns. Please bring any relevant information and arrive at least 15 minutes earlier for your first appointment so you have time to complete the forms. We will also be conducting a COVID19 screening and taking your temperature when you arrive.
Arriving early for your dental appointment helps us to address any issues with your dental insurance and/or medical history prior to your appointment time with our dentist or hygienist. Even if you have already completed the paperwork and have no questions, it’s still a good idea to show up a little early to your appointment so you do not feel rushed and it will ease any dental anxiety you may have.
Relax, You Are in Great Hands…
Beachstone Dental welcomes you to our dental office and we will guide you throughout the process. From our friendly receptionists and relaxing patient lounge to our treatment rooms, our space is designed to make you feel at home. Please feel free to ask us anything you like – we’re ready to help you with everything from scheduling appointments to our amenities to questions about dental procedures.
Our friendly team can help ease any dental anxiety or fear you have, and we have many ways of doing this prior to and during your treatment. If this is your first visit with us, Dr. Prasad will sit with you prior to treatment so he can get to know you better and go over what the visit entails.
If your appointment is with our dental hygienist, she will clean and polish your teeth, conduct a full examination, and take x-rays. Afterward, Dr. Prasad will be consulted to check x-rays and conduct an additional examination of your teeth for signs of decay, check your gums for changes, and check signs of oral cancer or other diseases. He will always take the time to get to know you and address any questions and concerns you may have.
After the entire exam is complete, Dr. Prasad will talk with you about his findings. He will prepare recommendations for your total oral health and well-being. These recommendations will include your personalized full oral maintenance plan as well as the potential of any additional dental treatment that you and Dr. Prasad agree upon. If additional dental services are required, you will be presented with a treatment plan and an estimate. Together, we can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements.
At the end of your visit, we will take you back to our reception desk and take care of billing. We can schedule your next appointment for preventive care or for a respective procedure from your treatment plan. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you the smile you deserve in a time-frame you can afford.
Beachstone Dental strives to keep all of our patients up to date and educated regarding their dental care to make sure you fully understand all of your dental care options. We will do our utmost to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
