Forms & Paperwork
The information we request when you become a patient becomes an essential part of your record. You can find our New Patient Form here on our Forms page. You can download and print the form and fill it out before your visit.
If it’s easier for you, you are welcome to complete your paperwork at our office, but please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment. When you schedule your appointment, we will let you know if we need other information like previous x-rays, medical history, or prescription list.
Meeting our Lakeland, FL Dental Team
When it’s time for your appointment, we will show you to your treatment room and get you settled. Next, you will meet with our hygienist who will look for signs of decay or gum disease, talk to you about any concerns you have and take x-rays as necessary.
She will then introduce you to Dr. Smith or Dr. Zaman who will review the results of your evaluation, explain the treatment we recommend and why, and work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
At the conclusion of your meeting with your doctor, we will arrange future appointments as necessary, discuss our financing options, and explain how your insurance benefits apply.
