3-Point Checklist Before Your Dental Consultation

family dentist Maple Grove

This post from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove MN outlines three steps to take before you come to our office for a consultation.

The state of your mouth is essential to your strength both emotionally and physically. Everyone wants to make a positive impression when they smile or speak. We understand that.

After you schedule a consultation, please take a moment to review the following checklist for a productive appointment:

1. Evaluate your hygiene routine and gaps in technique or consistency.
When do you brush your teeth? Do you floss? How often? If not, why? We can review your habits and establish what is holding you back, if anything.

2. Describe pain or problem areas throughout your mouth.
Persistent or intermittent? Sharp or dull? Triggered by hot or cold? Living with pain is unnecessary with the technology and expertise available these days. Usually there are easy solutions to seemingly big pains. Let us address all your aches.

3. Identify and explain what you want your smile to look like.
If you can describe your ideal smile, we can look at how to attain it. There are numerous possibilities for a wonderful smile redesign as well as dental maintenance care. Cosmetic dentistry runs the gamut from teeth whitening to veneers to dental implants.

At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove MN our goal is always for an outstanding patient experience. We offer complete family dentistry. Patients from Champlin, Plymouth MN, and Osseo also come to our practice for restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
