Your First Visit
Your First Visit to Forest Lake Smiles
An experienced administrative team member will help to determine your needs and schedule your initial exam with our clinical team. If time allows, we’ll send your registration paperwork so you can fill it out at your leisure and bring it to your appointment. Adults will be scheduled with Dr. Siverson for their initial exam. Minors will see one of our qualified team members for their initial appointment, and also be examined by Dr. Siverson.
When you arrive, you will receive a warm greeting and checked-in by our team. Our clinical team will thoroughly review your medical and dental history. We will then take necessary films to enable us to do a complete diagnosis.
Adults will then receive a comprehensive examination that includes a review of your previous dental treatment, a thorough check for cavities, an oral cancer screening and a periodontal exam. We will review your x-rays and, if appropriate, discuss your treatment options with you. For adults, your next appointment will be to have their cleaned with one of our highly skilled hygienists. If there are more urgent needs that should be addressed we will schedule those appointments first. An administrative team member will assist you with your dental insurance and financial options.
Minors will receive their teeth cleaning, a complete exam with a fluoride treatment and necessary films at their initial appointment. We recommended that parents schedule their child’s first visit between the age of 3 and 4 years. Children will also enjoy having their photo done at their initial appointment and a prize when they are done.
