First Visit

Your First Visit at Our Dentist in Elk Grove Village

Healthy teeth and gums lead to a beautiful smile, and our smiles are one of the first things people notice – when we smile in pictures, when we meet someone new, and when we express joy. There is no question as to why achieving a beautiful smile is so important to so many of us. Maintaining that smile means taking care of your oral health, and finding a reliable dentist to help you do it.

Frequent dental visits are a cornerstone of achieving healthy teeth and gums. However, if you are nervous about visiting the dentist, or are struggling to find a new dentist you can trust, keeping up with your appointments is not always easy. For children especially, the dentist can be a little nerve-racking. At Schumer Family Dental Care, we strive to ensure our patients always have a great experience at our dental office. Whether it’s your first appointment, your child’s, or you are simply switching dentists, Schumer Family Dental Care will do everything possible to make certain you enjoy your dental experience.

We leave a positive impression on new patients and young kids, help the elderly feel at ease, and treat every patient like family. When you visit us, you will be welcomed into a nurturing environment, met by friendly staff, and treated by experienced doctors you can trust.

To prepare for your first appointment at Schumer Family Dental Care, we recommend choosing a time that works best for your schedule so you can arrive relaxed and worry free.

Also, should you be bringing a child or elderly family member in for their first dental exam with us, we recommend discussing the upcoming appointment with them ahead of time. Be sure to soothe any fears they may have by explaining the appointment will include a simple examination, cleaning, and perhaps some pictures of their teeth. Following the appointment, a treatment plan, if necessary, will be devised and provided.

Also, informing us of your known dental needs, and your dental history, will ensure the appointment goes smoothly. Be sure to prepare any questions you want to ask the dentist before arriving at the office.

Also, please take note of the following bullet points, and complete what you can prior to your appointment.

  • Fill out any necessary paperwork before arriving.
  • Bring current insurance information.
  • Bring any previous dental X-Rays you might have available.
  • Provide us with a list of all current medications.
  • For young patients, schedule appointments before or after their regular nap time.
  • If you or your family member who has the appointment is not feeling well, call us to reschedule.
  • Alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment. (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, heart murmur, etc.)
  • Let us know if you require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics)

Please note, a parent or guardian must accompany patients who are under 18 at their first dental visit.
