If you’re getting ready for your first visit to Periodontics & Dental Implants Brently A. Grimard DDS, MS, we encourage you to get a head start on our digital new patient forms. These are secure and paperless, and allow us to get to know your dental health needs ahead of our appointment so we can accommodate you more personally.
To keep your visit to our office seamless and hassle-free we offer digital patient forms so you can complete them at a time that is convenient for you.
When you arrive at our office a friendly member of our team will greet you and help get your intake and consent forms completed on our expedient office iPad.
Dr. Grimard will take a closer look at your teeth and gums to assess their current health and will be able to assess if you need additional treatment. In addition, the exam will include a head and neck cancer screening, and will assess the overall health of the head and neck anatomy.
Our team will look at the inflammation around your teeth, carefully measuring the space between each tooth and the gum tissue surrounding it. The periodontal exam will assess the overall health of the supporting hard and soft tissues around your teeth.
Some dental issues can’t be seen with the naked eye, so we use modern and safe digital x-rays to capture detailed images of your teeth, gums, and facial bones, keeping you informed and involved each step of the way. For planning implants and assessing oral pathologies, we will use both 2D and 3D x-rays for an even more comprehensive view of your oral health.
Once we’ve evaluated all of the information we collect during the exam, charting, and x-rays, Dr. Grimard will review his findings and create a treatment plan that is tailored to you. He will explain everything he saw during the evaluation and detail the consequences of not addressing your dental needs.
When we’ve finished your evaluation, we will discuss our findings and make treatment recommendations. This is a good time to ask any questions you may have about the evaluation, findings, or anything else regarding your oral health.
We will go over insurance and financial considerations, and schedule your next visit. If you're using insurance, we will submit your claim as a courtesy. We also have financing available through CareCredit, so you can create payment plans that fit your needs, budget, and lifestyle.
