First Visit

Daniel Island Family Dental - Your First Visit

At your first visit, we would like to welcome you to the office and introduce you to Dr. Mattison and our team of dental professionals. During this appointment, we will gather information regarding your medical and dental history, and determine what your chief concerns and goals are regarding your dental health. After gathering this information, we will develop a variety of treatment plan options tailored to fulfill your specific dental care needs.

Optional Treatment Planning Consultation – After the record taking appointment and once the treatment plan is completed, we review and evaluate the dental needs in terms of necessity and patient concern. At no additional cost, we schedule a follow-up appointment to review treatment details, sequence of visits, financial considerations (i.e. insurance benefits coverage), and any other questions you might have regarding your proposed treatment.


Your initial appointment includes:

  • Patient intake interview
  • Review of medical and dental history
  • Complete set of intraoral x-rays
  • Oral examination of soft tissues
  • Tooth by tooth examination
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Study models (if necessary)
