We recommend that you complete this paperwork prior to the appointment. However, if you can't access these forms online, you can arrive early to your appointment and fill these forms out in person.

Your Health History

Before you undergo your first dental exam with us, be sure to share your health history with our team. This step will give our dentist insight into your oral health and the underlying causes of any dental problems you may be experiencing.

Dental Exam

On your first visit to our office, our dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. During this procedure, our dentist will check your mouth and teeth for any chronic or potential issues. Our dentist will also check for any periodontal diseases, tooth decay and gingivitis. They may conduct x-rays as well. Following the comprehensive exam, our dentist will formulate a custom-made treatment plan for you.

Cleaning

During your dental cleaning, our dentist will remove accumulated plaque from your teeth. After a thorough cleaning has been performed, our dentist will polish your teeth.

X-rays

X-rays are taken so that our dentist can examine your teeth, jawbone and dental health.

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing and flossing before the appointment will help our dentist properly examine your teeth.

Full Disclosure

It’s important that our new patients understand that there is nothing about your oral health to hide from our dentist. Hiding important information, such as smoking or not brushing teeth regularly, can have an impact on the treatments and services that our dentist recommends. It’s crucial that you disclose your complete and accurate medical and dental history on your first visit.

Disease Prevention & Recommendations

After your treatment is over, our dentist may recommend products that can ensure that your oral health is always at its best.

As a new patient at Alegre Dental @ Bosque, we want you to feel comfortable with every step of the process. If you have questions regarding what you can expect from your visit or the types of treatments available, contact our Albuquerque, New Mexico, dental office at 505-332-9198.
