Your First Visit
Thank you for choosing Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry. We are pleased to be part of the neighborhood and look forward to serving patients in the Chatham and Morristown, NJ areas.
Whether it’s been six months or six years since your last dental appointment, we believe that knowing what to expect when you get here can go a long way toward alleviating any nervousness you might be feeling.
What to Expect
Your initial appointment with us will generally consist of an examination, followed by a discussion of any dental issues we might have found as well as your treatment recommendations. Because we believe so strongly in patient education, we’ll take as much time as you need so you fully understand the diagnosis. In some cases, we can treat you on that same day; for more complex issues, however, we might require a follow-up appointment to provide needed treatment.
Some patients will have a dental cleaning at their first appointment as well. We may also suggest dental x-rays so we can see if there are any potential issues lurking below the surface of what we can see with a visual inspection.
We will spend some time with you going over your medical history, so be prepared to answer some questions.
What to Bring
We have included our new patient forms on our website, and downloading those and filling them out prior to your appointment will save you some time while you are here. If you need help or prefer to fill them out in-office, our team members are happy to help.
Other items to bring along to your first appointment include:
- Any recent dental x-rays
- A list of any medications you are taking and their doses, including over-the-counter drugs
- A list of any medical conditions you are currently receiving treatment for
- A photo ID and any insurance cards you might have
Please be sure to let us know before your first visit if you have a serious medical condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, and so forth.
If you have concerns or questions about your oral health, it can be helpful to write those down and bring along a list. It’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed at your first appointment, so having questions written down will ensure you remember everything you meant to ask.
