At Layton Family Dental of Fort Collins, we're dedicated to making your first visit—and every visit thereafter—a positive, informative, and comfortable experience. Your initial appointment is a pivotal step towards achieving optimal dental health and a beautiful smile. Here’s what you can expect and how to prepare for your first visit with us.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

Getting to Know Each Other

Your first visit is as much about you getting to know us as it is about us getting to know you. We value building a trusting relationship and understanding your dental history, concerns, and goals. This personalized approach ensures we provide care that's tailored to your individual needs.

Reviewing Your Medical History

A thorough understanding of your medical history is crucial for safe and effective dental care. You'll be asked to provide details about any medical conditions and medications you're taking, including vitamins and supplements, as these can impact your dental treatment plans.

Comprehensive Dental Exam

  • Full-Mouth X-rays: To get a clear picture of your dental health, we'll take a series of x-rays. This helps us detect any issues that aren't visible during a standard exam.
  • Oral Exam: We conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw, checking for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: An important part of your exam is a non-invasive screening for oral cancer, which is vital for early detection and treatment.

Preparing for Your Visit

To ensure your first visit is smooth and productive, we recommend:

  • List of Medications: Prepare a list of your current medications and dosages to bring to your appointment.
  • Previous Dental Records: If possible, arrange for any previous dental records to be sent to our office in advance.
  • Insurance Information: Bring your dental insurance card and any necessary forms. This will help us to provide you with an estimate of any co-payments or deductibles.
