Your first visit to the Lower Sioux Dental Clinic is about you – your comfort, your wellbeing and your health.
We understand that dental concerns can be sensitive, painful, embarrassing, or may cause anxiety. We are sensitive to your needs, and we strive to provide an environment where you can receive high quality care in a safe and comfortable environment. At your first visit, we seek to find out your desires and the direction you would like to go with your treatment. After our exam, we then work with you to create a treatment plan that works for you.
During your first visit we will review your dental and medical history forms, complete a head and neck exam, an intraoral exam, x-rays (if needed), and any other appropriate exams. The doctor will then review all of this information with you and, along with you, your desires and your input, will develop a treatment plan to address your dental needs or concerns. Generally, your next visit will be for a cleaning before beginning on the treatment plan.
Regular check-ups and cleanings are recommended to best ensure the health and wellbeing of your teeth and smile. These visits can be scheduled with your dental personnel. We recognize the importance of planning and schedule in your life. Parents/guardians are asked to present to the clinic with minors, and remain until appointment is completed. Our appointments generally last between 45 and 90 minutes.
The cost of treatment will depend on your needs and the level of treatment you are seeking. We will work with you to craft a treatment plan that is best suited for your needs. Our office staff is here to help answer your questions, and to work with you and your insurance provider.
