Welcome to Hope Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry. When you visit our dental office, we want you to feel welcome. No matter if you’re a new or current patient, we’re here to create a welcoming and warm environment. We know that some patients may have difficulty visiting the dentist due to negative experiences in the past or anxiety about dental care. We’re here to alleviate fear and anxiety surrounding dentistry. We welcome patients to explore patient resources for our dental office in Tulsa, OK, to learn more about what really happens at regular dental visits and to discover more about our practice.
Your First Visit
It’s always helpful to know what you can expect with your first visit to a new dentist. First of all, you’ll want to set aside a full hour for your first appointment with Dr. Cha. We run a very calm and happy practice, so when you first arrive, we’ll greet you and help you feel right at home. We’ll also offer you water or coffee.
Our registration and health history forms are available to you online, so you can complete them before you arrive. However, if you haven’t had a chance, we’ll get those completed with you. Then one of our assistants will get you seated comfortably in one of our chairs and offer a pillow or blanket if you would like.
The dentist will then come in and introduce himself and spend a few minutes getting to know you. He will complete a comprehensive exam that will include thorough cancer and gum disease screenings and a check for any problems with your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. He also will take digital x-rays and photos of problem areas in your mouth with an intraoral camera.
Once this exam is complete, we will help you find a convenient time to come in for your treatment consultation. This gives Dr. Cha plenty of time to evaluate the findings of his exam and create a treatment plan for you. He will meet with you personally during this treatment consultation. That way, he can explain his findings and explore the treatment options that are available to you. After you meet with him, our staff will also meet with you to explain the fees associated with specific procedures so that you will have a thorough understanding of your options.
Do You Have Dental Fear?
If you have any fear of dentistry, as so many of us do, don’t hesitate to let us know. We can discuss ways to help you alleviate that fear. Dr. Cha provides a number of sedation dentistry options, including nitrous oxide gas, oral sedation, or IV sedation. He can provide the care you need without any memory of your time in the dental chair.
