Dental Patient Information - Beverly Hills, CA
Becoming a New Patient: Made Easy!
We’re honored that you’re considering our practice for all of your oral health needs. Dr. Strom, Dr. Davidson, and Dr. Harkavy want to make the new patient process as straightforward as possible, which is why we’ve added information below on what to expect. This includes what you can expect before, during, and after your first visit.
New Patient Forms
When you first call our office, we will answer any questions to make sure we can provide you the services you are seeking, take down important initial information. Once you decide you want to appoint for your first visit, we will direct you to our online patient information forms. We will also outline our usual financial arrangements, estimate your costs for the first appointment, and answer your insurance questions if you utilize dental insurance. We will ALWAYS explore ways to maximize your insurance benefits and reduce your costs as allowed.
Your First Dental Visit - Virtual Check-In
When you arrive, please call or text us to let us know you are here and remain outside the office until we call/text back to assure you that we can provide you with appropriate physical distance from other patients. You’ll be met with a warm greeting and asked questions about your health history, take your temperature with a touchless thermometer, and give you a mask if you have forgotten your own. We will escort you to the back office where one of our staff will seat you in your room which will have been fully disinfected and empty for 15 minutes.
Your appointment will last for approximately one hour. This usually includes:
- A complete extra and intraoral examination of your teeth and soft tissue
- Oral cancer screening
- Sleep apnea screening
- TMJ evaluation
- Intraoral photos and X-rays as required
- Charting of your teeth and gums
- Presenting a treatment plan
- Give you time to set up your next appointment
