Your First Visit

Welcome to Goldfinch Dental Care!

If you haven’t completed our online patient form, we will spend about 10-15 minutes to gather some basic information about you. You can also complete the New Patient Forms here – whichever you prefer. Once you arrive and have checked-in, we will:

  • Take your profile photo
  • Review your medical history
  • Discuss any concerns you have including dental fears and/or anxiety
  • Measure your blood pressure and heart rate to establish your baseline
  • Take X-ray images
  • Take intraoral photos as needed

Please complete and submit our New Patient Forms here on our website.

Once we have collected all the necessary information, Dr. Lin will review them before completing a full head and neck and intraoral examinations including oral cancer screening. Dr. Lin will explain any findings from the examination and develop a treatment plan and recommend a sequence based on necessity and priority. However, all decisions will be made by you and we will work with you in addressing your main concerns first.

Depending on your current oral condition, you may be able to have your teeth cleaned the same day. For periodontally involved oral conditions, it may be necessary to have additional appointments to complete the affected areas. During your cleaning, we will review your current home care regimen and provide information on proper oral hygiene techniques and dietary impact on oral health as needed.

At the end of the appointment, we will walk you to the front desk to schedule your next appointment, which is typically 6 months unless there is a need to have you return sooner.
