What to expect on my first visit?

On your first visit, we ask that you bring your dental insurance information and a list of any medications you may be taking. You will be asked to fill out our new patient form upon your arrival, show up on your scheduled appointment time, as this timing will take into account for you to fill out any forms. You may also want to write down any questions or concerns you have regarding your dental health and bring this list with you. This will help ensure all of your concerns are addressed.
During your first visit, we will review your complete dental and medical history and your dental x-rays. Following a thorough exam, which may include taking new x-rays, we will discuss the results and discuss treatment options available to you. Our mission is to ensure our patients are informed about their dental health.
Most patients will also receive dental hygiene service at this initial visit which will include scaling, polishing and oral hygiene instruction. Children can expect to have a fluoride treatment as well.
At Lynhurst Dental we encourage our patients to build long lasting relationships with our team to ensure trust, open communication and a lifetime of good dental health.
What is your cancellation policy?

If less than 24 hours of notice is given to cancel an appointment, a minimum $50.00 fee* will be assessed depending on the length of the appointment cancelled.
