First Visit

Your First Step Towards A Healthier Smile

At the dental office of Dr. Christian Johnson, we’ve helped countless patients from all over Waldorf, La Plata, Brandywine, and our other neighboring communities get healthier smile with our comprehensive dental care. Every single one of those smile started in the same way, with the very first visit to our office. Scheduling that first appointment with us for your initial consultation with Dr. Johnson is the first step on the way to your new smile, as we craft the perfect treatment plan for you from our extensive list of dental services including restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry. To make sure that you’re prepared for the exciting experience of transforming your smile, check out more information about what you can expect at your first appointment below!

What To Bring To Your First Visit

To ensure that you have the best experience possible, we request that you bring a few items with you to your first appointment. These items you need are:

  • Any panoramic X-rays taken within the past six months
  • Your insurance card for your dental insurance (if applicable)

The x-rays will allow us to determine whether we will need to take new x-rays or if we can use the ones you already have when planning your treatment. With your insurance card, we can come up with an estimate for how much your treatment will cost and show you what can be covered by your plan, so you are never caught off guard by the cost of treatment.

Getting To Know You

The moment you walk into our office, the first thing that we want to do is get to know you better, since the more we know about you, the easier it will be for us to craft the perfect treatment plan for you. That’s why we ask that you complete some insurance and health information forms, which will give us some basic information about you and your medical history. To make your appointment as efficient as possible, you can download, print, and fill out these forms beforehand to bring with you to your appointment. Otherwise, we ask that you arrive to your appointment a few minutes early to give yourself time to fill out the forms in our office.

What Happens At Your First Appointment?

Once all of your forms are filled out, we will begin by conducting a full examination to determine the current state of your oral health, taking any x-rays if necessary. We’ll then give you a full dental cleaning to clear your teeth of any plaque and tartar buildup so your smile stays healthy in between your appointments. Once all of that work is done, Dr. Johnson will sit down with you to discuss any dental issues that we may have spotted during your exam, as well as the treatments that we would recommend to improve the health of your smile. 

One of the most important components of the dental care we offer to our patients is transparency, so you can expect that we will always be candid with you about the reasons we recommend treatment, as well as the risks and costs that are associated with those treatments. We encourage you to ask any and all questions that come to your mind during your appointment, since the better understanding you have about your dental experience with us, the more comfortable you will be.
