Patient education is a very important component of what we provide here at Orbit Dental of Garland, and part of that includes making sure you know exactly what to expect when you come to see us! Below, you’ll find information that should answer some basic questions about your first appointment as well as your available payment options. If there is anything else you’d like to know, be sure to give us a call any time!
Your First Visit
After a friendly introduction and a handshake, you’ll be escorted to your treatment room where our hygienist will outline exactly what will happen during your appointment. They’ll take some X-rays and images of your mouth, and Dr. Lankupalli will use these as well as a hands-on exam to talk to you about the current state of your oral health. If you need any additional treatments, she’ll show you exactly why and give you a chance to ask as many questions as you want.
