New Patients

Thank you for choosing East Ridge Dental for your dental needs. We look forward to providing you with the highest quality of dental care.

Here is what to expect at your first appointment:

  • You will meet Dr. Reckling or Dr. Seaborn and they will advise hygienist of what x-rays need to be taken.
  • Hygienist will clean teeth, chart existing conditions, take periodontal measurements, take intraoral photographs of teeth and take necessary x-rays.
  • Dr. Reckling or Dr. Seaborn will come back in and do a thorough exam, oral cancer screening and advises patient of any needed treatment.
  • You will meet with a care coordinator to further discuss any needed treatment, for examples the costs and insurance benefits.

What To Do Before Your First Appointment

You will need to fill out our New Patient Forms. In addition to filling them out, we ask that you please bring any insurance cards you may have, so that we may properly file your claims for you.

If you have been to see another dentist within the past 3 years, we ask that you contact them and request copies of any “current” x-rays, you may have. (Your previous dental provider will know what a “current x-ray” entails.)

We are looking forward to seeing you! Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your upcoming appointment.
