New Patients

Thank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive. We are very proud that you have chosen Indianola Family Dentistry for your dental care. In order to better serve you we have made the NEW PATIENT QUESTIONNAIRE available for you to fill out online before your visit. We also have computers in our office- so don’t panic, we can help here.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

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 current desires. When you arrive for your first visit, please have the New Patient Questionnaire filled out.

Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Bring your ID ( identification purposes) If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.
  • Any X-ray taken within the past six months or any other information from your previous dentist that can be helpful.

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Your doctor will perform a thorough exam. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth. Generally, X-rays will be taken, allowing your doctor to examine your mouth for teeth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. These diagnostic records will help your doctor provide an evaluation outlining any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. We will also provide you with a treatment plan, which will include your estimated portion of what your insurance will pay and what we will expect day of service. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.
