Dental Checkups & Cleanings in Ocala
If you live in Ocala or a surrounding community and you are looking to change dentists or visiting a dentist for the first time, you may wonder what to expect at Weldon General & Cosmetic Dentistry. We want you to know that you will be treated with complete respect and courtesy. In addition, if you have had a long layoff from the dentist know that you are not alone and that we would love to get you back on track. We fully understand that you have your choice of healthcare providers and would be honored to earn a lifelong relationship!
As a new patient, first and foremost, you will be greeted with a warm hello and a friendly smile by our front office staff who are happy to answer any of your questions and provide you with a beverage as you relax in our clean and comfortable waiting area. Dentistry often benefits from or even requires a more personal relationship than many other healthcare professions so we make every attempt to make you feel at home.
Your first visit with Dr. Weldon or Dr. Berg will include a review of your dental and general health history and a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and bite. We will ask what your overall goals are for your treatment. There is not one single treatment for every patient and we understand that the specific plan chosen to fit your needs and desires requires a coordinated effort between you and Dr. Weldon or Dr. Berg. The doctor will provide a diagnosis of your oral health situation and suggestions for treatment, some of which may be performed during the initial appointment. If you require more than just a basic cleaning and diagnostic x-rays, Dr. Weldon will describe what therapies he recommends to protect and restore your dental health and work with you on how to achieve the best possible results while remaining within your budget. If you have aesthetic concerns the doctor will be happy to discuss them with you and offer an array of choices for treatment. Together you will arrange for a second appointment that fits your schedule.
