If you have recent x-rays, please have them sent to our office so we may use them to aid in our treatment planning. If you do not have recent x-rays (full mouth set of x-rays within 5 years, bitewings within 1 year), we will need to take new x-rays during the appointment.
Welcome to New Generation Dental Center! We are so happy to have you as a new patient and we look forward to providing you with the highest quality dental care in a clean, comfortable, and state-of-the-art office.
Our comprehensive new patient appointments involve a thorough medical and dental history review, a detailed examination, and treatment planning.
The initial exam with the doctor usually takes 1 hour (30 minutes for children). If you are due for a cleaning, we will schedule you with the hygienist immediately following your exam.
We ask that you register in advance for your appointment by filling out a new patient form. (Note: for lip and tongue tie evaluations, use the separate form below)
Once the doctor has charted all your teeth, including existing restorations, a periodontal exam will be done. The doctor will measure the pocketing around your gums to look for any signs of periodontal disease.
A temporomandibular joint (TMJ) exam will be done, in which the doctor will check your jaw joints for any signs of inflammation or dysfunction, and then a thorough head and neck exam will be completed to look for oral cancer.
(for tongue ties, see below)
We will follow up with a phone call to confirm your appointment, and you may also opt in for text reminders if you wish to be reminded via SMS text messaging.
If you are being seen for a TMJ evaluation, please fill out the following form in addition to your new patient form:
If you are bringing in a child for a lip or tongue tie evaluation, you do not need to fill out a separate new patient form. Instead, please fill out the following form (depending on the age of your child):
