Your First Visit
We welcome new patients to our Jacksonville, TX dental office. During your first visit, you and your doctor will discuss what you want to achieve with your smile. You can also expect a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums.
As a new patient, you will be asked to answer our dental and medical history questionnaire. Medications taken and allergies are especially crucial to ensure safe dental care. The information sheet will also help your Jacksonville dentist create a treatment plan that suits your needs, preferences and budget. Dr. Folden and Dr. Westbrook will make treatment recommendations, but they will defer to your final decision.
Information provided by our patients is held in strict confidence. You can save time by downloading our new patient forms and completing them at home:
Note: Adobe Acrobat reader is required to view the forms. You can download Adobe Reader here for free.
Your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and soft tissues, and perform oral cancer screening and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) evaluation. We use safe, low-radiation digital X-rays for accurate diagnosis. If the tests indicate problems, you and your dentist will discuss treatment options. Once a decision has been made about treatment, we will provide a breakdown of the costs and determine how much is covered by insurance and how much you will pay out of pocket.
We believe that superior dental care should be accessible, so we accept a wide variety of financing options, including cash, check, credit card, and dental charge card. We also have special coupons and discounts on Invisalign, teeth whitening and emergency exams for new patients.
