First Visit

Your First Visit to Our Dental Office

That moment has arrived when you’re getting ready to visit one of our CarolinasDentist offices for the first time. Our dental team really gets excited about welcoming you and your family into our practice family. It’s our goal to make sure each and every one of your visits to our dental clinic goes smoothly, so we’ve outlined what you should bring and what you can expect at your first appointment.

What to Bring?

Here’s a new patient checklist to go through before coming in for the first time:

  • Photo ID (can be a valid driver’s license or a state ID)
  • Insurance card (if you’re planning on using your dental insurance)
  • Completed new patient forms (you can fill them out in advance for most locations by visiting the location page, or complete them at check-in)
  • Dental records/X-rays (you can have your old dental office send us your most recent records, but it’s okay if not)

What to Expect?

During your first appointment, you will:

  • Have a new patient consultation with your dentist
  • Get a full comprehensive exam from the dentist
  • Discuss a personalized treatment plan and any next steps
  • Receive a hygiene evaluation and full dental cleaning
  • Get any necessary treatment (we provide same-day treatment when possible after diagnosis)

New Patient Specials

We’re thrilled every time a new patient walks into our dental clinic, so we try to offer a little something back as well. If you’re arriving for your first visit to our office, you’re more than welcome to take advantage of our new patient gift as a token of our sincere thanks!

    The receptionist was friendly and the waiting time was at a minimum. The dental assistant was professional and helpful. The surgeon explained everything that had to be done so I felt comfortable. The prices are high but I guess you get what you pay for.

    Excellent first experience here. Both Brooke and Dr. Bodah were laid back, and great conversationalists. When it came down to business, however, they were clearly proficient. No doubt they were honest as well, which isn't something you can say about every medical professional these days.

    Friendly staff. Very welcoming and professional. Just try to make sure to do your check in properly and confirm your appointment time. Mine was changed a few times and I was not notified about the third change so I was 30 minutes early.
