What to expect during your first visit...
Dr. Sergei Shirman, DMD, strives to ensure each patient feels at home at our dental practice. A trip to the dentist doesn’t have to cause anxiety. At Dental Wellness of Charlotte, we have a completely digital dental office. This means that you will be able to fill out all appropriate paperwork via a secure link prior to arriving at the office. Not to worry, if you need help utilizing our paperless system, our patient representatives are here to help when you arrive at your appointment.
If this is your first visit, you will meet with your dentist to talk about your medical history. If you have any oral health worries or fears, you can feel comfortable sharing them with him or her—your comfort is most important, so we encourage you to ask questions. Next, your dentist will likely examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, and take x-rays and/or panoramic radiographs. Panoramic radiographs help your dentist view unerupted or impacted teeth, as well as sinus conditions, and can detect lesions or fractures in the jaw.
Our team wants you to be completely comfortable with all your dental care; therefore, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have during your visit regarding your dental care plan.
Your dentist will discuss the comprehensive dental treatment plan he or she developed specifically for you. While your dentist will provide the expert guidance you deserve, your questions are always welcome and you always have the final say in your treatment.
