At Dr. Jay Erickson’s Family Dentistry, we are committed to making sure your first visit is a simple yet excellent experience. We’ll start you on the path to good oral health.
Park in our spacious car lot and walk in. Gayna or Tina will be at the front desk waiting to check you in. First, you’ll fill out patient information and medical history forms, and provide insurance information. For your first time, please arrive a few minutes early to take care of this paperwork.
Your hygienist will then greet you and take you back to the treatment room. You can discuss any concerns you might have about your teeth or gums with her. Dr. Jay will also be available for consultation at this time.
If it has been a while since you’ve seen a dentist, you will probably need x-rays to check in between the teeth. Your hygienist will also examine your gums. Finally, she will clean the tartar from your teeth and polish them.
Dr. Jay will come in and do a complete examination of your mouth. This will include an oral cancer exam of all of your soft tissues. He will then discuss his findings with you, recommend treatment options and give you a cost estimate for any needed work. If you have a complicated problem he will develop a detailed treatment plan and estimate for you.
Once the exam is finished, you’ll be escorted to the front desk. Future appointments will be scheduled as needed. If possible, you should arrange for future routine cleanings at this time, to make sure you have the best selection of appointment times. We’ll file your insurance and collect payments.
It’s our job to make sure you’re comfortable and secure about the service we’re offering you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
