Our dentist, Dr. Alok Ahlawat, and our team want to help you prepare for your initial appointment. If you have access to your dental records, please bring them with you on your first visit. We will also need the name and number of your previous dentist and your regular care provider. If you have dental insurance, please bring your card and if possible, a list of your benefits. We will also need to know about any previous or existing medical conditions, including pregnancy and any allergies. Please bring a list of any medications you are taking, including vitamins or supplements. If you need help preparing for your first dental visit in Mesa, Arizona, call Arizona Dental Heights at (480) 525-6000 today.
When you come in for your first visit with our office, our dentist will complete a full examination of your smile and oral health so we can determine the best possible treatment plan moving forward. As part of the examination, we will inspect your teeth and smile for any dental conditions that may be developing so we can arrange treatment, if necessary. We will check for tooth decay, bone loss and periodontal disease and then analyze your bite (occlusion). We may also perform an oral cancer screening to check for any abnormalities in the tissues of your mouth that may cause cancer.
After we have completed your examination, our dentist and team will review their findings with you and the state of your oral health. If any treatment is needed, we will go over the treatment options with you to determine the best possible course of treatment for you and your smile. We will go over any concerns you have about your oral health and answer any questions you might have. We want you to feel confident in our care!
If you have any questions or would like to schedule your first appointment with us, we encourage you to call or visit our office today!
