How Can You Prepare for a Dental Visit?

How Can You Prepare for a Dental Visit?

We’ve become one of the leading providers of procedures from dental implants to emergency wisdom teeth removals in Philadelphia because we always make our patients’ comfort and well-being the highest priority. With that being said, if you have a dental appointment coming up, or you’re thinking about booking one, there’s a couple of things you can take into consideration before you come visit us that we hope will make your visit even more comfortable.

Book the Appointment When You Need It

With dental care, it’s important that you don’t put off the inevitable. In many cases, the longer you wait, the more pain you’ll have to endure while waiting and wondering whether to book an appointment. Waiting too long may make it more difficult to fix the issue, so please try to contact us as soon as you notice the problem.

Transfer Dental Records

If this is your first appointment with us, have your old dental office transfer their records to us in order to ensure a smooth transition.


If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to tell us. We would love to work together with you to find the most comfortable way to address all of your concerns. The same applies to your dental problem: the more comprehensive information you can provide us, the better we can help. Consider sitting down and writing a list of dental issues you’ve dealt with in the last six months or so to make sure you don’t forget to mention them.

On the Day of the Appointment

We recommend you avoid beverages with caffeine or sugar on the day of your appointment, and if you take any medication or vitamins, it’s good to have a list of them with you. Similarly, if you have any questions about the procedure or what to do after it, it’s always better to write them down and bring them with you to make sure you don’t forget. You should also inform your dentist of any changes in your health, particularly if you’ve gotten pregnant.


For your own comfort, try to get a good night’s sleep before the visit and wear something you’re comfortable in. We also recommend that you brush and floss your teeth before you arrive for the appointment and that you arrive a little early to have time to complete forms and take a moment to relax.
