Paper Work

Since it’ll be your first time at Nature Coast Dental Care, it’s imperative that you complete our new patient forms. These forms will take some time to fill out, so we recommend arriving 30 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment.

New Patient Form

Health history is essential. Evaluating your medical history allows our dentist to get a better understanding of your dental care needs.

Comprehensive Exam

All first-time patients have to undergo a comprehensive exam. The more details you provide, the easier it is for our dentist to get to the root of the problem. A comprehensive exam allows our dentist to set a solid course of action to intervene with any current or potential issues. It also includes an examination of your teeth and gums.

X-Ray

X-rays are a way of diagnosing problems that can otherwise go unnoticed, like tooth decay, abscess, impacted teeth or jawbone damage. The details x-rays provide could make all the difference for your overall oral health.

Our dentist may recommend a panoramic radiograph. The imaging provided through the panoramic x-ray provides a complete image of your jaws. Such resolution helps in pinpointing any damage that tooth decay may have caused to the bone structure.

Treatment Plan

Once the comprehensive exam and x-rays are complete, our dentist will provide you with solutions to any dental irregularities. Through a comprehensive treatment plan, our dentist can resolve the issues that affect your oral hygiene. Since each treatment plan is developed based on your specific needs, it’s imperative that you are clear about your expectations from the start.

Upon scheduling your next appointment with our receptionist, you may sign up for Smile Reminders, our complimentary text message and email reminders sent to remind you of your next appointment. To receive these alerts, visit the following link: Smile Reminders Authorization Form.
