First Visit

First Dental Visit - Simply Dental Seattle Waiting Room

We look forward to meeting you! Here is a little information that will help you understand what to expect, and answer any questions you may have before your visit:

  • Please arrive fifteen minutes prior to your first appointment to complete new patient paperwork if you have not done this electronically.
  • Patients with specific health conditions should bring a list of all medications they are currently taking.
  • Children under the age of eighteen years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • If you have pertinent information from a previous dental office such as recent x-rays we would appreciate you contacting that office beforehand to authorize the release and transfer of records.
  • If you have dental insurance please bring your ID card with you.

In order for our staff to provide the best care possible to each patient we require that new patients undergo a comprehensive examination at the time of their initial visit.

During this visit you will receive the following:

  • a complete head and neck examination
  • a screening for oral cancer
  • a full mouth x-ray series as needed
  • a thorough evaluation of the teeth and gum tissue
  • intraoral and extraoral photographs as needed
  • diagnostic molds when indicated

If you have a dental emergency and require immediate care we may defer portions of the comprehensive exam to a subsequent visit depending on the time available and the nature of the treatment needed.

We offer FREE PARKING for our patients on a first come, first serve basis.  The lot is a pay lot to the west of our building.  Enter the lot from Denny Way almost directly across the street from the Pink Elephant Car Wash.  Turn right as if you were entering the Highway 99 on ramp, take a sharp right & you will enter the lot.  Park in spaces 1 through 5 and register your auto information with our office when you arrive.  If all of those spaces are full please park in another spot in the lot and pay.
