31 Jul A Patient’s First Visit
Bartonville, TX – Bartonville dentist Dr. Jonathan Golab takes good care of his patients. He and his staff especially focus on ensuring that patients have a positive experience during their first visit. Your first visit with us is different from other dental offices. Gone are the days of a “quick five-minute examination”. At your first visit, Dr. Golab, a Texas dental care provider, will thoroughly examine you with a full set of digital X-rays, digital photography, oral cancer examination, TMJ examination, periodontal (gum) screening, and a private consultation. He will assess your dental care needs and determine your objectives for your smile. To ensure the success of your initial visit, you should bring relevant records with you. As a dentistry provider, he will be able to give you more detailed information and get you through your appointment more quickly if you have the following:
- Any dental X-rays
- A written list of your current medications (with dosages)
- Completed medical and dental insurance forms
- A written medical history
“The more information we have at the start, the sooner we can make decisions and plans about treatment,” explains Dr. Golab, who also offers Invisalign in his practice. Patient information forms are available on our website, so you can print them and bring them with you to the appointment. Once we have evaluated your dental situation, we will be able to make recommendations. Keeping in mind your objectives, we will describe the treatment choices available to you and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Dr. Golab will describe in detail whatever procedures he recommends and outline the next steps in the process. Every aspect of the experience at the office of this porcelain veneers provider is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. “I only believe in seeing one patient at a time,” explains Dr. Golab. “So you know all of my attention will be focused on you.” In the office, you will hear soothing waterfalls and pleasant background music – and you will smell the aromatherapy.
We may offer you heated towels, neck pillows, coffee, tea, and snacks fresh from the fridge. We’ll even bring you lunch during an especially long appointment. Video glasses and DVD movies are available to entertain you while you wait. Chocolates are available when you check out. “Every aspect of the experience has been designed with the comfort and ease of the patient in mind,” says Dr. Golab, also a cosmetic dentistry provider. “Sometimes people are reluctant to visit the dentist because they have unpleasant memories. But we want our patients to experience the office as a pleasant and relaxing environment.”
