Dental Patient Information – Hamburg, NJ
What You Need to Know
Before you arrive at our office for your first appointment, there are some things you should know as a new patient. That way, you can be better prepared for your visit and have fewer surprises. Please look over the information below and let us know if you have any questions or if you need more clarification. We’ll be happy to help you however we can.
Your First Visit
Before you even set foot inside the office, our team is working hard to make sure you have an excellent experience. The process starts with scheduling an appointment over the phone with our office manager, who has over two full decades of experience. After learning more about your concerns and how we can help, she will help you determine the ideal time for your upcoming visit.
Once you arrive, you will see Dr. Kurian first for a one-on-one chat. She will perform a comprehensive exam that includes an oral cancer screening, TMJ evaluation, oral health assessment, digital X-ray capture, intraoral/extraoral photos, medication/allergy review, and more. You will also be given an in-depth periodontal/gum evaluation. Then, it is time to start planning treatment. We go above and beyond to ensure that our care is financially feasible, which is why we will often recommend different phases/appointments to help spread out the cost in a more budget-friendly way.
This first appointment can take around one and a half hours – we do not want to miss anything! By the time you are ready to leave, Dr. Kurian wants you to feel completely confident about what comes next.
New Patient Forms
If you are a new patient to our practice, we ask that you complete some paperwork. These forms give us some background information about you, your dental insurance, and your medical and dental history. Rather than sit in our waiting room and fill them out, you can download and complete them before you come, which means that our team can process the information faster and potentially start your appointment sooner.
