New Patient Information
If you are a new patient of Lakeside Daytona Dentist, we cannot wait to welcome you into our dental office! Dr. Silva and our entire team look forward to being your partner in oral health for years to come. Doing some prep work now can help things go a little more smoothly throughout the registration process during your appointment, so please take some time to read below and breeze through your first visit with your new Daytona Beach dentist!
We accept a wide variety of dental insurances and offer two financing options. For patients without dental insurance, our Daytona dental office even offers an in-house discount plan.
What to Expect on Your First Dental Visit
We want every dental visit at our Daytona Beach clinic to be a great experience, starting with your first one. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first appointment so we can properly enter all of your information. Plan to spend between 60 – 90 minutes in our dental office. You will receive a comprehensive oral examination and x-rays to help your dentist assess your oral health. Your dentist will look for signs of:
- Tooth decay
- Bone loss
- Oral cancer
- Periodontal (gum) disease
Your Treatment Plan
Next, your dentist will customize a personal treatment plan for you based on the clinical findings of your initial examination. It will specify the type of cleaning and additional visits you need and include recommendations for home care products. Your dental team will review your treatment plan options and begin treatment after obtaining your consent.
What to Bring
To save time, please bring with you:
- Dental insurance card, if applicable
- Photo ID card
- Completed new patient forms
We set aside dedicated time in our dental office for your dental appointment. If you find it necessary to cancel, please provide 48-hour advance notice. Without proper notice, you may be charged a $50 fee which is subject to change without notice.
