What to Expect
A beautiful smile begins with a healthy smile. That’s why we take a proactive approach to preventative dental care. Your first visit will begin with a new patient exam and consultation with Dr. Paulen. You’ll have a chance to talk to the dentist about your dental and medical history as well as your dental concerns and goals. If you need cosmetic or restorative dental treatment, we’ll design a treatment plan that fits your needs and budget.
Our dental examinations typically include:
- Periodontal screening for gum disease
- Oral cancer screening
- TMJ and bite analysis
- Digital dental x-rays
New Dental Patient FAQs
What should I bring to my first dental appointment?
We suggest you arrive a few minutes before your first dental appointment to give you time to process your paperwork. If possible, download the patient forms ahead of time and bring them to your first visit. Please bring your dental insurance information with you as well.
Does Dr. Paulen accept dental insurance?
Yes, we accept nearly all dental insurance plans. While we are not a participating provider with any dental plans, we can still provide you with dental treatment and assist you with the claims process. Many of our patients see us as an out-of-network provider and still maximize their insurance benefits. Please provide your insurance information prior to your first visit to Proud Smiles.
