We understand there can be a bit of apprehension when visiting a new location because you are not sure what to expect. We want you to feel at ease while in our office by feeling well-prepared before you walk through our doors. As a new patient , here is what you can expect during your first visit.
When you step into our office, the first person you will meet is our receptionists. They help our practice flow smoothly throughout the day by coordinating with patients and our dental team. Our receptionists check you in for your appointment and verify your personal information, such as your dental insurance. They will ask you to complete a brief form regarding your medical and dental history. This allows your dentist in Costa Mesa to have background information to provide the best care possible.
Our dental hygienist plays an invaluable role in your oral health. In fact, you will spend a great deal of time with them as they review your information, take x-rays, and clean your teeth, and assist the dentist.
Our hygienist uses special dental tools to clean your teeth to reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Afterward, they will discuss your home oral hygiene habits and make recommendations for improvement to keep your smile healthy in between your appointments.
They may recommend additional preventive treatments, like a fluoride varnish or dental sealants. After finishing your cleaning, your teeth are polished to give you a beautiful, clean smile.
Our hygienist will also take x-rays to review with the dentist to gain a complete picture of your oral structures.
After you are finished with your cleaning, you will meet our dentist, Dr. Jeremy B. Jorgenson. He carefully examines your teeth, gums, and oral structures using a metal probe and a small angled mirror. This allows him to see even the most difficult places in your mouth to check for any concerning areas, like tooth decay and gum disease.
Dr. Jorgenson probes your gums to look for any signs of swelling that may indicate the early stages of periodontal disease. He will also assess your bite, temporomandibular joint, neck, and other oral structures to look for any abnormalities.
Dr. Jorgenson carefully reviews your x-rays to look for any complications that may be brewing beneath the surface, such as an infection. With complete insight into your oral health, he creates a customized treatment plan to help you reach and maintain optimal oral health. He discusses his findings with you and takes the time to explain any necessary treatment. Dr. Jorgenson will answer your questions to help you make educated decisions for your smile.
Before you leave, our receptionist will schedule any follow-up or future appointments.
