At Davis Family Dental Care, we promote the importance of preventive care and education, essential to achieving optimal dental health. Our dentists emphasize comprehensive, personalized exams to help us intercept problems before they advance to major health or cosmetic concerns.
Routine visits to the dentist will help prevent dental disease. These visits help us stay informed of your overall health, changes to medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
First Dental Appointment
At Davis Family Dental Care, we believe that a beautiful smile first begins with a healthy smile. That’s why we take a proactive approach to preventative dental care. Your first visit to our Bedford, TX dental office will begin with a new patient exam and pre-clinical interview. During this time, we’ll discuss your dental and medical history and give you a tour of the office.
Our dental examinations typically include:
- Periodontal exam (check for gum disease)
- Oral cancer screening
- TMJ exam
- Dental exam (with x-rays when needed)
If your smile is in relatively good health and you have no major dental concerns, we may be able to schedule you for a professional dental cleaning on your first visit. Consult with our office when making your appointment to get our recommendation.
New Dental Patient FAQs
What should I bring to my first dental appointment?
Please download our patient forms and bring them with you to your first dental appointment. If you have dental insurance, please remember to bring that information as well. If you are visiting our Bedford dental office for a second opinion or being referred by another dentist, let us know when scheduling your appointment so we can get copies of your medical or dental records if needed.
Do you take my dental insurance?
Yes, Davis Family Dental Care in Bedford, TX accepts nearly all dental insurance. While we do not participate in any managed care dental plans, we can still provide you with dental treatment and assist you with the claims process. Many of our patients see us as an out-of-network provider and still maximize their insurance benefits. Learn more about our dental insurance policy
Does your dentist office accept children?
As a Bedford family dentist, we see children as well as adults. We are more than happy to see children who are comfortable visiting the dentist and adolescents who have outgrown a pediatric dentist. If your child has special needs or dental concerns, we can recommend a local pediatric dentist to fit child’s needs.
