First Visit

During your first visit to Ardent Dental, we will introduce you to your dental team. We will collect and evaluate your medical and dental history. Download and print New Patient Forms if you would like to complete some of the necessary paperwork ahead of time to bring to your first visit. Your first appointment will consist of a comprehensive exam, necessary cleaning treatment, and any required radiographs for us to better understand your oral health needs.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • A list of your current medications.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your dental insurance card or a copy of the front and back of the card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
  • Current dental x-ray images, if applicable.
  • If feasible, your completed New Patient Forms.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the exam.


If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that he or she forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office. We follow the guidelines set by the American Dental Association for partial and full-mouth diagnostic radiographs. It is recommended that cavity-detection x-rays are performed at least every 12 months and panoramic or full mouth x-rays are taken every three years.
