Prepare for your first visit with us as your Columbus Dentist with this helpful guide
Our Process as Your Arena District Dentist
We’re committed to caring for your dental health. On your initial visit with us, Dr. Gum will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your current dental health. This process involves familiarizing ourselves with your dental and health history, including going over any available x-rays and concerns with you.
After your assessment, we’ll perform a professional dental cleaning on the same day, jumpstarting your dental health, and laying the foundation for successful treatment in the future.
Diagnosis & Consultation
Once your cleaning and exam is complete, the next step is diagnosis, including a consultation with Dr. Gum and if treatment is required, we’ll happily go over that information with you during this stage.
To help transition to our dental practice, we highly recommend bringing the following information with you to your first visit:
A list of your current medical prescriptions
Your insurance card if you have dental insurance
Dates of your last x-rays or the x-rays themselves if available
Comprehensive medical history-Relevant diagnoses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart related illness
