Your First Visit

Your first visit at Tribeca

Hello new patient! We’re so happy you’ve chosen to make an appointment with us. We want to share with you some basic info and resources about your first visit with us. We hope you’ll find everything you need to know about your first dentist appointment with us, but please don’t hesitate to give us a call (212-561-5303) if you still have questions.

What to Do Before Your Dentist Appointment

Prior to your appointment, we’ll ask you to do the following:

  • Fill out our new patient paperwork for your file. This will also help us get to know you and your history a little bit. If you choose not to fill it out online, you have the option to show up early on the day of your appointment to fill it out in person.
  • If you have any special requirements around dental visits such as taking antibiotics or receiving medical clearance, please make sure you’ve made the arrangements to be ready for your appointment.
  • Additionally, let us know when you book your appointment if you require any special accommodations or have major anxiety/fear about dental visits.
  • We’ll send a text a day or two before your visit in order to confirm. Please make sure you respond so we know that you have received the memo. If we don’t hear back from you via text, we’ll attempt to reach you by phone.
  • If you have a form of dental coverage, be sure to bring your card or provide us with images of the front and back by email or text.
  • And finally, bring your photo ID with you on the day of your appointment.

What to Expect

For starters, if you’re feeling a little nervous about your first dentist appointment, that’s okay! Some of our new patients like to read about the doctors and staff and take a virtual tour before their first visit. We find it helps folks have a sense of what it’s like here, and it can be reassuring to read about how qualified everyone is. Additionally, check out our anesthesia and sedation options if you’re feeling nervous about pain or discomfort.

When you arrive for your first visit with us, our friendly and accommodating receptionist will get you checked in, and you’ll have a seat in the waiting room. One of the providers or their assistant will invite you to their room when they are fully prepared to take care of your dental needs. What will follow is typically:

  1. We will take a head-and-shoulders picture of you. We like to put a face to the name, and with the little patients, it’s nice to track their growth.
  2. Together, we will go through your medical history to make sure we understand everything and have the correct information.
  3. We will scan your teeth with our state of the art 3D scanner.
  4. We’ll also take photos of your teeth.
  5. And finally, we’ll take x-rays.

From there, your experience may vary depending upon the reason for your visit, but most new patients will receive an exam and cleaning.
