Welcome to Family Dentistry of Sioux Falls! At your first appointment, you’ll be brought back to start your visit with our hygienist, who will take a series of assessments. They'll review paperwork and medical history, capture digital X-rays prescribed by the dentist, take an intraoral photo tour of your mouth, chart any existing restorations, take periodontal measurements, and flag any concerning areas to bring to the attention of the doctor. The hygienist will also educate you about good oral hygiene and show you your intraoral tour while listening to the questions and concerns you have about your dental health.
At your first appointment, you will also meet one of our doctors, who will complete an in-depth exam and oral cancer screening, provide a comprehensive diagnosis of your dental condition, and discuss potential treatment options with you. After discussing the choices you have for treatment, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan that will show the number of follow-up appointments needed and the scope of your insurance benefits and out of pocket cost.
In a situation where a patient has multiple choices or complex treatment options, we give them the opportunity to make a second, no charge, consultation appointment with our Treatment Coordinator to discuss the best course of treatment for their dental health.
