Overland Park, KS Dentist
First Visit – What to Expect
Welcome to Kansas Dental Center!
Enter our practice in Overland Park and you will be greeted by a calming, clean and modern environment. Our friendly staff will greet you and begin to collect information required for your first visit. We offer a completely digital check-in process that can be completed ahead of time online (New Patient Forms), or you can complete and update any necessary information on our office iPad while enjoying a beverage in our comfortable waiting area. If you choose to complete your registration at the time of your initial appointment, please arrive twenty minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow adequate time to complete your check-in process.
Your initial visit will take about a hour and a half and will consist of a Comprehensive Oral Examination. Relax in our comfortable dental chairs and, if desired, select a program to watch on our flat screen televisions provided in each dental treatment room. X-rays will be taken of your teeth and jaws to identify potential dental problems that otherwise cannot be detected by simply looking in your mouth. Kansas Dental Center is equipped with completely digital x-ray systems, this means you receive an extremely low dose of radiation while obtaining the highest quality diagnostic images available. We will review your x-rays and provide a thorough oral examination.
If additional treatment is recommended, Dr. Papinsick will discuss all of your options, address any concerns, and prioritize your treatment plan. Our treatment coordinator will answer any questions regarding billing or insurance and schedule your next appointment.
If no further treatment is recommended, we will see you at your next check-up. In the mean time, please check out our blog and social media pages to stay up to date with ways you can continue to improve your oral health!
