First Visit

As a new patient at Clover Smile Studio, your first visit is a chance for our team to get to know you and for you to learn more about us. We want your initial checkup and cleaning to go smoothly from start to finish. Here is what you can expect during your first visit to our office in Austin when you join our dental family.

When you make your appointment, our friendly staff will let you know what information you will need to bring for your first visit. We need to gather your medical and dental history, as well as billing and financial information. Much of this can be provided on the new patient forms we ask you to fill out for your first visit. For your convenience, these forms are located online. Please fill them out before your appointment to save time during your visit.

During Your Appointment

When you come in for your initial visit, we will want to do a thorough cleaning and checkup. If needed, we will take x-rays to get a complete view of your teeth, gums and jaw for your exam. As part of your visit, you will meet with one of our hygienists for a periodontal exam and cleaning. This will gauge your gum health and help us design a cleaning schedule to protect your periodontal health.

The other half of your checkup will include meeting with one of our dentists. Our dentist will carefully examine your x-rays, teeth and oral tissues. We offer oral cancer screenings that can be included as a part of your exam. Our dentist will go over your exam results and recommend any treatments that are needed. We use tech-forward dental devices like intraoral cameras to keep you informed of your oral health.

Your first visit is a chance to evaluate your current oral health and to create a treatment plan to improve your smile. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions. If you are interested in cosmetic services, sedation dentistry, restorative options or orthodontics, please feel free to inquire about any of our specialty services. We look forward to meeting you during your first visit and beginning a long-term relationship to improve your oral health. Contact Clover Smile Studio with any questions or to schedule your first appointment.
