Your First Visit
On behalf of Dr. Michael Colangelo and our team, we are honored you have chosen us to care for your smile.
We want your first dental appointment at Grapevine Dental to be a positive and enjoyable experience that exceeds your expectations in every way. By working together, we can ensure that you get the dental care you need, and all of the details involved in a first appointment are taken care of properly.
What to Bring to Your Appointment
- Your insurance card and ID
- List of medications
- List of allergies
- Any forms you completed in advance
- Records or x-rays from your previous dentist
It is also important to let us know if you have any medical conditions that might impact our ability to treat you safely. These might include:
- Heart conditions
- Joint replacement
- Recent surgeries
You can always speak with your doctor to determine if any pre-medication prescriptions are needed before you receive dental treatment.
Why not treat yourself by kicking back and relaxing while we care for your smile? Here are some of the little comforts we provide to make your dental appointment special.
- Massage chairs in patient rooms
- Noise-isolating headphones with personalized music selection
- Unique magazine collection to browse
- Diet soda and bottled waters
Your Comprehensive Oral Exam
Having an accurate assessment of your oral health will help us to customize your treatment to meet your needs. Your initial evaluation with Dr. Colangelo will cover all the bases, so you can make the best choice when it comes to oral health decisions.
You will always have an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have about the health or appearance of your smile and to ask Dr. Colangelo any questions you have before we get started.
- Comprehensive exam of teeth, gums, and bite
- Oral cancer screening
- Diagnostic x-rays
After your exam, Dr. Colangelo will share any diagnoses with you and all available treatment options. We have an intraoral camera in our dental practice that we can use to show you what Dr. Colangelo sees during your exam by displaying images of your teeth on our patient room monitors.
We want you to feel confident in your care and your smile, so questions are always welcome!
We look forward to welcoming you to Grapevine Dental.
