What To Expect
Our Doctor and Staff will always treat you with complete compassion and the utmost of respect. The dentist will perform a complete oral examination and discuss any treatment you may need. This initial examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer.
Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit, or it may be scheduled for a follow-up visit, depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.
Your first appointment will take between 1–1½ hours. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
What to Bring
To make your visit as pleasant and productive as possible, there are a few things you should bring with you.
With just a few simple forms, we’ll ask for relevant medical history, any medications you might be taking, your dental history, and any dental insurance coverage you may have.
You will find our new patient forms below. You may print the forms, complete them and bring them in with you when you arrive for your first visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions by patients of Tulsa Dental Center. If you cannot find an answer to your question, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us directly. A member of our team is always happy to help in any way.
Do I need to arrive early for my first dental appointment?
Please arrive 15-30 minutes early.
What do I need to bring to my first dental appointment?
Please bring the following forms to your first appointment:
- Dental insurance card or information
- Medication list
How long will my first dental appointment last?
Appointment duration varies according to the patient’s need.
Most dental cleanings, X-rays, and exams last between 30 minutes to an hour and a half on average.
Why do I need to go to the Dentist regularly?
Regular dental visits are important because they help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
During the dental check-up, your dental professional will check your overall oral health for any trouble areas. During the cleaning, your dental professional will remove any plaque and tartar buildup and may polish your teeth.
You should have a regular dental visit at least twice a year or as recommended by your dental professional.
How can I get my kids to brush their teeth?
- Choose child-flavored toothpaste.
- Allow the child to choose his/her toothbrush.
- Find a way to make it fun.
- Brush their teeth before they get in the bath or change into their pj’s to try to avoid the negative association of toothbrushing and bedtime.
- Sit on the ground and brush your teeth with them. Little games like “Simon Says” or “Copy Cat” could catch the child’s interest.
- Turn on their favorite song for them to dance to while they are brushing.
Why are dental X-rays necessary?
Dental X-rays help dentists visualize diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be seen with a simple oral exam.
In addition, X-rays help the dentist find and treat dental problems early in their development, which can potentially save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life.
