What to Expect
As a New Patient
As soon as you visit our office in Archdale, you’re on the road to a beautiful smile. At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we feature patient-centered care designed to exceed your expectations.
From your first consultation to your final treatment, we’ll be there with you every step of the way. Find out what to expect during your initial visit and see what you can do to get ready for your new smile.
Your Initial Consultation
We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes early to complete your new patient forms. But you can get a headstart by filling out your new patient forms online before you get here. Once you’ve completed the paperwork, you’ll be ready for your consultation with one of our dentists.
We’ll take a complete set of digital x-rays, and your dentist will provide a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums, and jaw. This gives us a better understanding of your oral health and helps our dentists identify any possible areas of concern.
If you’re looking to replace one or more missing teeth, x-rays can also help us determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. This natural-looking restoration can be used to restore any number of missing teeth. We even feature implant-supported dentures to replace a whole arch of missing teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Before visiting the dentist, there’s no requirement to brush your teeth beforehand but it never hurts. If you do brush your teeth before your visit, make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Once at your appointment, clean teeth will help us assess your oral health with clarity. No matter what, our dental hygienists will perform a thorough deep cleaning so you can leave our Archdale office with sparkling teeth.
If you have any questions before your first visit to Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, call our Archdale office at (336) 434-3186.
Prevention is the best way to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Feel free to ask Dr. MacDonald any questions you may have. These are the top questions we usually receive from patients upon their first visit with us:
- How can I improve my smile?
- What should my oral health care routine be?
- How often should I schedule regular exams and cleanings?
- How can I keep my smile bright and white?
- Do I have any dental conditions I should know about?
- Do I need any specific dental treatments?
While these are general questions, each answer will be tailored to meet your specific oral health condition. Our Archdale dental team will always go above and beyond to ensure your visit is personalized every time.
As part of your first visit, we’ll provide you with a personalized treatment plan, your estimated cost of care, and a date for a follow-up appointment. We do everything we can to make you feel as comfortable as possible about your treatment plan.
