First Visit

Dr. Lorraine Hanna and her team at Briarwood Valley Dentistry strives to provide a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere for all our patients. We work hard to make sure each of our patients has a positive experience with us, and a smile on their face when they leave our office!

During your first visit with us, we want to get to know you better and become familiar with your past dental experiences. This will help us develop a personalized treatment plan that best meets your individual needs. We also want you to feel comfortable while spending time in our Kalamazoo MI dentist office so you can have confidence that you and your family are getting the quality dental care that you deserve. 

Prior to Your Appointment

 
Before your appointment time, we kindly ask that you complete all insurance and health information forms. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will help you become acquainted with our office. These forms include: 

  • Patient Registration Form
  • Health & Dental History Form
  • Consent for Treatment Form
  • Financial Policy Form
  • Privacy Practice Form
If you have any panoramic X-rays taken of your mouth within the past five years, please bring them with you. We also ask that you bring your insurance card if you have dental coverage. This will help us provide you with an estimate of your fees. 

 

Your Initial Appointment 

You can expect your first appointment to last about one hour. Before your examination, we will take diagnostic records (X-rays) of your mouth, which will be used by Dr. Hanna to diagnose any problems you may have which may include tooth decay, problems with your gums, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. Following your examination, we will have a follow-up discussion with you to inform you of our findings. If Dr. Hanna did detect problems during your examination, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan that addresses these issues. Before you leave, we will give you some oral hygiene instructions and some helpful tips for taking good care of your smile.  

We are believers in open communication between our patients and us. You can rest assured that we will always speak candidly with you and take the time to answer your questions or discuss your concerns. By openly communicating with each other, together we can keep your smile healthy and beautiful so you can enjoy it for the rest of your life!
