Your First Visit at Aesthetic Dental Center of Rockland County
At Aesthetic Dental Center, our goal is to ensure that each and every patient receives outstanding dental care in a safe and comfortable environment. If this is your first time visiting us, we would like to warmly welcome you and offer the information below so that you know what to expect and can receive the dental care that you and your family need without any surprises.
Before Your Appointment
Prior to your first appointment, we will need you to fill out some informational forms. This information may include your dental and general medical history, financial policy, informed consent, release of information, and patient financial agreement.
Your First Appointment
During your initial dental visit, your dental hygienist will cover you with a cloth and lay out a tray with dental tools that they will use to clean your teeth. They will scrape away any plaque or tartar found on your teeth or along your gum line. They will then polish your teeth using a dental tool with a spinning head. This appointment normally ends with a flossing of your teeth to ensure that your teeth are extra clean.
Your dental hygienist may then bring in the dentist who will conduct a comprehensive dental exam, including an examination of every tooth. They are looking for signs of gaps or pockets between your teeth and gums. If any problems are detected, a follow-up appointment can be made so that you can receive appropriate treatment.
Preparing for Your Child's First Visit
Make sure that your child is not hungry and is well rested for their appointment. You may want to write down a set of questions beforehand to ask your dentist. You should also be prepared to provide a list of any medication that your child is currently taking, as well as to fill out a medical history form.
During this first visit, we will normally educate you on proper tooth and gum care for babies and young children. Parents of babies may also receive information on proper pacifier use and how proper nutrition helps in maintaining healthy teeth.
This first dental visit for you and your child is a great opportunity to establish a solid working relationship and to ensure that your child will have a positive experience so that they receive ongoing dental care starting at an early age. Setting this precedent helps ensure that they are accustomed to a proper oral care routine, including visiting the dentist for regular dental exams and cleanings for the rest of their lives.

You will be provided with detailed information if you are required to return for certain types of appointments, such as the treatment of cavities.
