Dentist Accepting New Patients in Mesa AZ
We want to thank you for visiting the Cullimore Family Dentistry website! Our goal is for your first visit to be one of comfort and acknowledgement of your personal dental needs.
We believe the foundation of a long term relationship is established at your first visit to our practice.
What To Expect at Your First Visit
Your first appointment will be scheduled with your Dentist and one of our Registered Dental Hygienists. It will include any necessary x-rays, intraoral photographs and a comprehensive examination. This will consist of an oral cancer screening, a periodontal examination; which will determine the type of cleaning necessary, and a restorative evaluation to address any tooth-related concerns.
We believe communication is key, and we will listen and work with you to develop a practical and successful dental plan to meet your needs.
The doctor and hygienist will diagnose your hygiene and restorative needs from your examination, and the treatment recommendations will be explained to you in detail. We generally allow enough time to include a cleaning during your initial appointment unless more time is needed to thoroughly diagnose and explain your treatment.
An estimate for any recommended treatment will be prepared by our financial coordinator, and your next appointment will be scheduled. Click here for financing information.
After your initial cleaning, your hygienist will recommend a professional cleaning at least twice a year. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease or are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment, your hygienist may recommend a more frequent recall schedule. You may either schedule your future appointment before you leave the office, or we can remind you closer to the time you will be due.
If your initial appointment is to address an immediate concern due to injury, infection or pain, your visit will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. If you have become an established patient, we will reserve a future appointment for a comprehensive evaluation (as described above.)
We offer same day emergency services at both locations; Cullimore Family Dentistry, our Mesa office, and Red Rock Family Dentistry, our Chandler, AZ office.
