An intake appointment is an initial first visit and takes approximately 30 minutes for an adult and 20 minutes for a child. The intake consists of a thorough check-up, treatment plan and diagnostic X-rays. If you have had X-rays taken within the last year then it may not be necessary to retake any at this appointment. Your dentist will advise you.The intake is where you can discuss any concerns or wishes for your oral health with the dentist. Please make sure to email your recent X-rays, and any pertinent information, before your first visit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At your first visit a form of ID is required to be shown in the form of an official photo identification. Example: Dutch ID card, passport (a driving license is not accepted). Note: we do not make a copy of your ID
At a child’s first visit a dental cleaning is also included. Children typically can see the dentist for a cleaning up to the age of 16yrs, but they will be referred to the prevention assistant when the dentist advises. For adult patients the type of cleaning needed is determined at the initial intake exam where the dentist will recommend if they will need to see the dental hygienist or the prevention assistant (the dentist does not perform adult cleaning appointments).
