WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST DENTIST VISIT (3 STEPS)
1. First Dentist Visit: The New Patient Exam
At Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics we take pride in looking at each patient as a whole, looking at their oral needs, but also his or her whole body health. So on your first dentist visit, we look at your needs, wants and life circumstances so that the treatment presented is appropriate and customized to each particular person.
Upon completion of the New Patient Forms, whether it’s by hand or digitally, on your first dental visit you will see either Dr. Goetz or Dr. Rohrer for a New Patient Examination. This appointment takes between 45 minutes and up to 90 minutes to complete, depending on your particular needs and if you require xrays, intraoral photos or any other diagnostic procedures.
2. Personalized Dental and Whole Body Wellness Plan
On your second dental visit, you will have a 30 minute consultation with the doctor to discuss the treatment plan and its phases, if needed. You will also receive a teeth cleaning, which will probably the most relaxing and comfortable you ever had.
During this appointment, our hygienist will use different relaxation techniques such as eye pillows, soothing music, meditation, aromatherapy and neck massages before and during the procedure. The 1 hour appointment ends with a warm towel.
Finally, our Patient Coordinator will go over financial arrangements with you, including the total cost of treatment, and how much of it will be covered by dental insurance. She will also discuss the length of treatment, available payment methods and the most suitable time to start treatment.
3. Treatment Commencement and Completion
Regardless of the complexity of your case, Dr. Goetz’ advanced technical training and expertise allows him to complete treatment in as little as two visits. During these dental appointments, you will be pampered too, just like you were during your teeth cleaning. So prepare to relax – once again.
It is worth noting that Dr. Goetz only works with world-renowned labs. This means that you are getting the same quality restorations as many Hollywood stars.
Our Whole Body Approach offers patients only the use of the finest materials and biocompatible products available. We are proud to offer mercury free products. We feel this approach is the safest and most aesthetically pleasing way to maintain and restore your oral health.
Smile Design Evaluation & Cosmetic Imaging
As a standard complimentary service to all of our patients, we offer custom cosmetic imaging using the latest digital technology to help you envision your results before you even start treatment!
Our computer software allows you to preview your smile before the work is actually done. You can try in different smile styles to determine which one fits your face best.
