When you first arrive and meet our staff, you’ll fill out your new patient paperwork. This helps our team get to know you better. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to complete your paperwork. Or, you can get a head start by filling out your patient forms now. Download New Patient Forms.
New patients often ask if they can have their teeth cleaned during their first visit. Your dental treatments usually begin with a follow-up visit, often scheduled as soon as the next day. We need to see you first for a comprehensive exam and then schedule adequate time with your hygienist.
How does Warrington Dental approach the use of dental X-rays in caring for patients?
We always balance the need for X-rays with patient safety needs, with the ultimate goal being better health for the patient. We carefully consider patient safety together with patient benefit, as with any technology for patient care.
If X-rays come with risks, why have dental X-rays taken at all?
When Warrington Dental takes an X-ray, it’s because there are service benefits we can’t provide without them. Dental X-rays allow us to diagnose dental issues that require attention. Left unattended, these dental health issues could lead to other health problems that far outweigh the potential minor exposure from X-ray technology.
What safety precautions does Warrington Dental take for dental X-rays?
- To provide for the optimum patient safety, Warrington Dental has all X-ray units tested on a regular basis to ensure that we adhere to industry safety standards.
- We follow American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines for X-rays.
