What To Expect at Your First Visit

By sharing what to expect on your first visit, we hope to make it easy for you to get to know us – so that we can get to know you!

What to Bring

Please complete our New Patient Form online prior to your appointment. The new patient form helps our team understand your overall health.

The Appointment Process

During your first visit, we’ll complete a full oral exam – including X-rays – to assess the overall health of your smile.

Once the exam is complete, your dentist will develop a personalized oral health plan, from at-home care to (potentially) additional services you and your dentist agree upon. We’ll also recommend a time for your next appointment.

Your first visit is also a great time to ask questions about your treatment options, or to discuss your goals for your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to ask our staff any questions or concerns.

Insurance & Payment Options

At Highland Dental Centre, we want to help make your dental experience as seamless as possible. We do our best to help you navigate our options for payment and insurance so you can focus on more important things, like restoring your oral health and achieving your dental goals.

Insurance Claims

Our front office administrators are happy to accept most insurance plans. For your convenience, we can direct bill your insurance company for you and our administrative team is happy to assist you if you need help understanding your insurance plan more thoroughly.

Payment Methods

All non-insured balances are due on the day of the appointment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, debit, and e-transfer.

Support for Anxious Patients

Anxiety or fear around dental appointments is very common, and it can prevent people from getting the dental care they need. If this sounds like you, don't fret.

The team at Highland Dental Centre has a variety of practices in place, including dental sedation options, to help you relax during your appointments.
