What to Expect
Your First Visit
As a patient at Cove Family Dental, you’ll discover our unique approach to dentistry. Our focus is not just on your smile, but on your overall well-being. Here, we offer understanding instead of judgement, recognizing that life can sometimes put oral care on the back burner. Our mission is to guide you forward on your path to improved health, rather than dwell on the past.
Prepare For Your Appointment
To make your first visit as easy as possible, here’s how you can prepare:
- Schedule your appointment
- Download and complete your new patient forms prior to your visit
- Think about your questions and concerns to discuss with Dr. Grantham
- Bring your paperwork, a valid ID, and any medications you are currently taking
- Arrive a few minutes early in case we have any follow-up questions for you
Please let us know if you have any questions about the forms, or if there’s anything else you think we should know before you come in for your first appointment.
Filling out patient forms before your appointment speeds up the intake process, saving you time and making your visit more efficient. Call us at (254) 294-2326 if you have any questions.
Your New Patient Experience
After arriving and receiving a warm welcome from our team, we will give you a tour of the office, showing you our technology and all of the little details that make a big impact on your experience.
From your first consultation, our primary goal is to listen. You’ll meet with Dr. Grantham who will get to know you as a person and learn your preferences when it comes to your dental treatment. You will have plenty of uninterrupted time to express your concerns, hopes, and to cover all questions.
Your initial appointment may involve an exam, digital x-rays, a thorough and gentle cleaning, oral cancer screening, or airway assessment. If you are in need of more involved treatment, we will take a few “before” photos of your smile to be used in planning and to show your smile transformation!
Your first visit is meant to be a time dedicated just for you, not just a time to run through a checklist of generic care. We listen more, ask the right questions, and let you express your concerns, expectations, and dental history. Because of this, please understand that appointment times may vary.
The Importance of Your Health History
We believe in whole-health dentistry. Oral health doesn’t exist in isolation, but rather it is intricately connected with our overall health. It’s not just about fixing a tooth when a problem occurs, but understanding the full picture and what could have caused the problem to begin with.
At your initial visit, we take plenty of time to review your health history together, discussing any chronic conditions, previous trauma to the face or mouth, genetic predispositions, medications and potential side-effects that could impact your oral health.
