Finding a New Dentist
The search for a new dentist can be an overwhelming experience. Generally, patients remain with their same doctor for many years as they feel comfortable with the service. However, when facing special circumstances, such as moving to a new neighborhood, people have to find new doctors. Below are the services we provide at Pickerington Ohio.

Your first step is to call our office and set up an appointment. Consultations are a great opportunity for you to meet our dentist and get to know him or her better. Our dentist can talk to you about the different procedures that are offered and how you can benefit from them.
Paperwork and Documentation
Our team will assist you in setting up an appointment. Before the appointment, you will be required to fill out a new patient form along with providing your dental history and records. It is suggested that you come in at least 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment to make sure that you have plenty of time to fill out these forms.
Our office also provides patients with the choice of filling out the forms before coming to the clinic. You can visit our website and fill out the enrollment form online. This saves you time and ensures you a hassle-free and efficient appointment. Patients can download health history forms from our website and fill in all the required details. This information will be stored in our database and be evaluated prior to your appointment. To download and complete the forms prior to your appointment, please click the following link:
New Patient Form
After studying your dental health history, our dentist will examine your gums, teeth, and mouth. This procedure is known as a comprehensive exam and is performed to study the state of your dental health and hygiene. Our dentist will look for any sensitivity, decay, and redness around the gums and teeth during the examination. Even though our dentist will have already studied your medical and dental history from the forms you completed, he might still ask you questions about your teeth while examining them. This is fairly common in the event that our dentist sees anything unusual or something which was not mentioned in the forms.
After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist takes an X-ray of your mouth, which will give a clear picture of the condition of your teeth and jaw. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases and cavities. X-rays usually don’t take more than a few minutes and are completely safe.
Post Examination Discussion
After the dental checkup, our dentist will discuss your results with you. Our dentist will guide you through any of the irregularities or decay that were found in your mouth. They may also mention the various treatment options that are offered at our clinic.
After, you will receive the total cost of the particular procedure and can discuss a payment plan, if needed.
You may schedule an appointment for six months later after this initial check-up, or sooner if you need a special procedure.
It is highly recommended for patients to see the dentist at least twice a year to avoid any cavities, tooth decay or oral health issues. During these routine check-ups, the teeth are cleaned and treated to make sure that they stay in good health.
