First Visit Expectations
If you’re like most patients you appreciate being informed before arriving at the dentist. Below is an overview of what you can expect when visiting Stonebriar Family Dentistry.
LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make your care as individual as you are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of your medications.
Next, full-mouth x-rays and a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaws, will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
YOU’RE IN GREAT HANDS
And if you haven’t been to a dentist in a long while, please don’t worry. You’ve made a important decision – no need to feel guilty!
Once your entire exam is completed, Dr. Chitre will talk with you about her findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you the smile you need in a timeframe you can afford.
COMFORTABLE DENTAL VISITS
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well. So, come in, recline, and unwind. We’ve equipped our office with modern amenities to make your visits more enjoyable – you’re in great hands.
TVs in Treatment Rooms
Relax and enjoy a movie or TV show while we work. Dental visits fly by when you’re entertained!
Blankets & Pillows
Stay warm and rest your neck with our cozy blankets and pillows. Your comfort is our top priority.
WiFi Internet Access
Want to check your email or surf the 'net? With our free office-wide WiFi, you’ll never be out of touch.
We have scented towels for you, so you can feel refreshed before going back to your normal daily activities.
If you prefer to listen to music, let us know. We have headphones that will allow you to zone out to your favorite artists.
We employ the latest technology so you can enjoy fast & efficient dental care.
Treat yourself to a bottled water or a freshly brewed cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
Toys, Books & Prizes
We strive to make dental visits easy, educational, and fun for our younger patients.
MULTI-LINGUAL DENTAL PRACTICE
We are able to speak and understand many languages at Stonebriar Family Dentistry, so communicating with Dr. Chitre and our staff is a breeze! We are proficient in English, Marathi, and Hindi.
FAMILY BLOCK APPOINTMENTS
Family-block appointments allow you to schedule your family’s dental treatments back to back. So instead of rearranging your entire week for several dental appointments, now you can schedule all dental appointments on one day. We have found that this is especially helpful for moms who have to find childcare for their youngest children while they take their older kids to the dentist. We do everything we can to work our schedule around yours.
CONVENIENT APPOINTMENT TIMES & EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS
We understand you are busy and may not be able to work several dental appointments into your already jam-packed schedule, so we offer same-day dental treatments. On the same day you come in for your dental exam, we can go ahead and get started on any other treatments you may need. For example, if Dr. Chitre determines you need a cavity filled, we can fill the cavity right then instead of having you schedule another appointment for the filling. We really want to make dental care as convenient as possible.
We know that no one has time for a toothache, so we make sure to have time set aside each day for emergency appointments. We work our schedule around yours and try to see you the same day you call us. Dental emergencies are painful, but scheduling your appointment with Stonebriar Family Dentistry doesn’t have to be!
