New Patient Visit and Forms
Your first visit to Draper Smiles is very important. From the first time we meet to performing a comprehensive exam, and preparing a treatment plan based not only on clinical information, but on a your vision, is vital to the successful outcome of the treatment and its long term stability.
Dr. Pessoa has spent many years learning and utilizing a unique protocol that helps them formulate an individualized treatment plan for each patient. The initial examination appointment may take up to 1.5 hours. It consists not only of a clinical evaluation, but an update of x-rays, initial digital scan of your teeth, and digital photographs. For each patient, we evaluate a patient’s needs based on their periodontal (gum & bone) health, biomechanical (existing tooth structure and previous dentistry), function (joint, bite and chewing), and cosmetic characteristics and desires.
A follow-up consultation may then be required to discuss possible treatment options and the fees and time associated with each option. Once the treatment needs have been established, we will assist you in coordinating the necessary appointments to manage that treatment. We will also work closely with you to help facilitate any treatment that may involve other dental specialists.
Please click on the link at the top of the page and fill out ALL of the forms BEFORE your schedule appointment. It will ensure we have all the necessary information to best serve you. We do not reserve additional time for paperwork in the office as to not take away from the time we need to best take care of you.
