Dental Patient Information – San Antonio, TX

What to Know Before Your First Visit

Dr. Patel and the rest of our team care about giving you a positive dental experience, which should start at your very first appointment. The information below is essential for getting started as a new patient at our dental office; it covers what to expect at your first visit as well as potential financing options for affordable care. Please call our dental office if you have any other questions about how you can get ready for your appointment.

Your First Dental Visit

Once you check in and turn in all of the necessary forms, you’ll spend a brief time in our waiting room before being taken back to our operatory for an exam and cleaning. We’ll ask questions about symptoms you’ve noticed lately, carefully examine the state of your mouth, and identify any areas of concern that need further attention. Afterwards, we’ll give our recommendations on procedures that we believe will help you protect your oral health.

New Patient Forms

The forms that you complete before your first appointment give us context about your oral health and give us some direction as to what we should be looking for during your exam. Download the forms using the link below and fill them out at home so that you can shave several minutes off the time you spend in our waiting room.
