What Is A New Patient Appointment

Before you can receive any kind of treatment, such as a deep cleaning, fillings for cavities, or a consultation for a more advanced service such as dentures or implants, our team here at Weissman Family Dentistry in Birmingham will perform a new patient appointment - including an exam with X Rays to get the full landscape of your current oral health, consultation with one of Birmingham’s top doctors, and a dental cleaning. 

When Should I Make a New Patient Appointment?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. However, you may require more frequent visits depending on your oral health, so don’t delay and make an appointment now.

Even if you have seen a dentist within the last six months, you may have concerns over gum health, tooth pain, or needed repairs to procedures like dentures and fillings. If so, come see us at Weissman Family Dentistry in Birmingham so we can help you restore your oral health.

It is also time to make an appointment if you are ready to learn about enhancing your smile through services such as teeth whitening, or implants.

Preparing Ahead of Time

New Patient Paperwork

To ensure our team here at Weissman Family Dentistry in Birmingham is ready for your visit, you can prepare for your new patient appointment in the following ways. Don’t have time now? No problem, just arrive 15-30 minutes before your appointment time.

Speed up your check-in process by filling out your first visit paperwork from the comfort of your home.

Locate Your Insurance Information

Weissman Family Dentistry can confirm eligibility of your insurance with our Birmingham location. While some of our services, such as a new patient appointment, have set or promotional pricing, front desk employees can not guarantee prices for services, as they will vary based on your specific treatment plan and insurance.

If you don’t have insurance, still come and see us - payment plans may be available.

X-Rays/Treatment Info from Previous Dentist

Our expert team can provide second opinions on any previous consultations, or help continue a treatment plan you may have paused. If applicable, you can call your previous dentist to have them send over your X-rays to our office before your appointment.

Medical History

Medical history is important to our office because oral health and overall health are closely connected. Please let Weissman Family Dentistry know if you have any medical conditions that may impact your treatment plan such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or artificial heart valves & joints.

If you are unsure about your complete medical history or do not have access to it, rest assured that our experienced dental professionals will still provide you with the best possible treatment. Our team is trained in the proper assessments and imaging to empower our doctors to give you quality care.

Comprehensive list of medications - examples include heart medications, aspirin, antihistamines, and decongestants. This information is useful to our team because these medicines can affect your saliva, gum health, cause dry mouth or ulcers, and more. 

Prepare a list of questions - One of our top Birmingham doctors will be happy to review and answer any concerns you might have about the state of your teeth, and if there are any current issues you’d like addressed - such as tooth or gum pain, bad breath, or stained/yellow teeth.  

Please note: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18.

Don’t be afraid to call us with any questions you might have before your new patient appointment, or if you need directions in the Birmingham area.
