If you are like most people, you feel a bit intimidated at the idea of changing dentists or scheduling an appointment after a long period without dental care. Dr. David Spilkia and his team at David Spilkia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA are here to reassure you with helpful information, so you know what to expect when you arrive. We understand that this first dental visit sets the stage for a long-term relationship helping you enjoy lifetime of healthy smiles. We work hard to make it, and every appointment that follows, extra pleasant.

First dental visit at Philadelphia, PA office is low-stress

It begins with a call to (267) 463-2777 to schedule an appointment, where you receive a warm greeting. Be sure to ask about late day and Saturday hours to fit your busy schedule. You may also take advantage of the convenience of our online scheduling app.

Would you like to avoid the pressure of remembering vital health information and scribbling furiously on a clipboard in the reception area? Download our new patient registration packet. You can print and complete the forms in the privacy of home, with your medical records and medications handy.

Bring the completed documents and your insurance card or information (if you have coverage that applies to dental care) along to your first visit. The time you save is put to good use, meeting our team and getting familiarized with the office layout. One of our friendly dental assistants walks you to the treatment room and makes sure you are settled comfortably in the chair.

In most cases, we start with bitewing x-rays using comfortable digital technology with minimal radiation exposure. The hygienist gently cleans your teeth, charting any potential problems so Dr. Spilkia can take a closer look.

If you have not seen a dentist for a long time, don’t worry. Dr. Spilkia won’t give you a lecture, but he will give you a comprehensive examination including a painless oral cancer screening. Following this thorough evaluation of teeth, gum, and facial bone, you and the doctor have a relaxed conversation. He listens carefully to understand your lifestyle and dental treatment goals, and he answers your questions. Using findings from the exam as a baseline, together you and Dr. Spilkia determine a treatment plan to address existing problems and help you maintain a healthy mouth.

This is also a terrific time to discuss cosmetic enhancements to bring additional dazzle to your smile. With low- and zero-interest financing plans, “smile style” can fit affordably into most budgets.
