We would like every visit to CarolinasDentist to be easy and stress free. We ask that you arrive a few minutes before your appointment with your driver’s license and insurance card so you can fill out patient registration forms at your leisure. Prior to seeing your dental care provider, you will check in with our Patient Advocates to confirm your insurance and appointment information.

For adult new-patient exams, we reserve two hours for your comprehensive exam, which will include the following:

  • Check-in and new-patient paperwork
  • New-patient interview with your dentist
  • Quick limited exam from the dentist
  • Discussion of treatment plan to fit your needs
  • Hygiene evaluation and full cleaning
  • Possible treatment


For child new-patient exams, we reserve one hour for the appointment, which includes time for the dentist and child to get acquainted, a complete exam and cleaning.

If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason at all, we are happy to do so. You should be receiving text message or email appointment reminders, and our staff will be calling to confirm your appointment within the weeks before the appointment. If you have additional questions about what to expect during your first exam, please feel free to contact your office and the staff can assist you.
