What to expect as a patient at Strevey Dental

We welcome new patients and believe that every new relationship is worth the time it takes to develop trust and ease of conversation. Therefore we have designated one team member, Darcie, to welcome, schedule, obtain records, review the health history, and document the goals and concerns of each new patient. The initial conversation with Darcie, might include questions about past dental experiences, hobbies, music preferences, the dental health of your parents, and the level of care you are seeking.

New patients, unless it is an emergency appointment, are usually scheduled for exams with both Dr. Strevey and our hygienist on the same day before any treatment is scheduled. These exams allow our team to get to know you and allow us to become familiar with your mouth and your specific needs and preferences. New patient appointments usually include x-rays, a comprehensive exam with Dr. Strevey, and a Dental Fitness exam with our hygienist. After we have determined the health of your mouth, we can schedule any type of treatment that might be suggested, the type and length of time required for a clinical cleaning, and a better understanding of you as a person for future appointments.

Our New Patient Registration form can be completed online as soon as you make your appointment so that we can receive it prior to your first appointment and obtain the necessary records to prepare adequately for your first visit. To comply with HIPPA regulations and protect your privacy, completed and signed health forms cannot be returned by email but must be returned by fax, postal mail, or in person. You may select an adult health history form or one for children under 14 years of age. To print our patient registration forms, please click on the link above. You will need Acrobat Reader, which is a free software program available by downloading Adobe Reader here if you do not already have it on your computer.
