Your First Visit to See Me Smile Dental

Your First Dental Visit

What Should You Expect During Your First Visit?

There’s a first time for everything, and that includes the first time you walk through the doors at our practice. At See Me Smile Dental in Oxnard, we know that first impressions are crucial. We aim to make all patients feel comfortable, and to give them the individualized attention and custom treatment they deserve.

The first appointment functions as an introductory one, allowing us to meet you, provide a consultation, and get a gameplan for your oral health goals. By combining your personal preferences for dental care with our expertise in the field, we’ll be on track to give you a smile you’re excited to show off.

Do You Have Specific Needs or Concerns?

We get it – dental care is a very personal topic, and for some people it can be stressful. When you come in for your first appointment, we’re open to hearing about any specific concerns you have about procedures, as well as any specifics about what you’re hoping to accomplish. We maintain this openness for all patients, no matter their age, oral health, or how long they’ve been our patient.

How Can We Help You at Our Oxnard Dentist Office?

When you walk through the doors at our Oxnard facility, you’ll be greeted with a warm, clean, inviting space that’s designed to evoke feelings of comfort. Our kind and courteous staff will be happy to help you from your initial check-in at the reception area, through intake, and all the way through your first appointment.

We know you’ll enjoy meeting our team, because we’re always excited to serve new patients. We look forward to learning about you and your oral health needs – as well as sharing with you all the skills, techniques, and high-end equipment we use to create a comfortable and safe experience every time.

Even if you’re a little anxious now, by the time you meet us, you’ll be feeling confident about your decision to trust us with your dental health. In the meantime, you can explore our website to meet Dr. Omid and Dr. Hamid, as well as to learn about our services and see our previous work in the smile gallery.

What Will We Do During the First Appointment?

The first appointment is traditionally a little longer than others. This is because we dedicate extra time to get to know you and find out how to create your perfect smile. In order to do this, we will:

Discuss Your Dental History

Previous dental work, treatments, and oral health issues provide important knowledge for us on how to treat you in the future. The better we understand your history, the more we can help you.

Conduct a Dental Exam

An oral exam is another way for us to understand where your oral health is currently, and how to get you where you need to be. The checkup can provide insights on how to improve your teeth and gums, and we may also advise options like a teeth cleaning with one of our hygienists to prepare you for future work.

Use Diagnostics to Understand Your Needs

We use the best dental technology to gain a clear picture (literally) of your dental health. Our digital x-rays are a non-invasive method for taking pictures of your whole mouth, including those hard-to-see areas where cavities or other issues could be hiding.

Discuss Your Needs and Requirements

Knowing what’s inside your mind is as important as knowing what’s inside your mouth. We’ll talk about what you want to accomplish with us, how you would prefer to do it, and what the best plan is to get you the smile of your dreams.

Create a Dental Treatment Timeline

Consistency is key to creating better oral health. Once we know your needs, we can create an appointment program that works with your goals and your schedule. Our flexible options allow you to get the care you need to achieve your goals with certainty about the future.

What Should You Bring for the First Exam?

The best way to create a smooth and stress-free first appointment is to know what to bring. This list provides everything you need to make the appointment effective and efficient:

  • Any dental x-rays taken within the last six months. (It’s okay if you don’t have these, we can take digital ones at our office)
  • Information about your medical history, including medications you’re taking.
  • Dental insurance card, if applicable.
  • Parent or legal guardian, if you’re under 18. Also, anyone of any age is free to bring someone along if it would make them feel more comfortable.

When you have all the necessary information and support during your first appointment, it speeds things along and puts us on track to better serve you.

Do You Need Ongoing Dental Care for Your Family?

While our concern for your wellness and comfort starts before you walk in the door, you should also know it doesn’t end when you walk out.

In addition to providing the best treatment with the top technology, we also offer ongoing educational resources for you and yours. This can include nutrition information and home care tips. What you eat, what type of toothpaste you use, and even how you floss can all have a big impact on your oral wellness.

We Can’t Wait to Welcome You!

See Me Smile Dental of Oxnard is so excited to welcome you to our practice. Our talented team and modern facility provide the perfect conditions to help you achieve optimal oral health. We know that choosing a dentist for the first time is a big step, so we encourage you to reach out with any questions you may have.
