Your First Visit

At Asheville Periodontics, we provide quality patient experiences to everyone who walks in our door.  Through personal growth and education, we remain energized and at the forefront of periodontal care.  On your first visit, you can expect our team to go above and beyond your expectations to provide you the best oral care and education.

During your first visit, we will introduce you to our team and talk with you about your medical and dental history.  Dr. Goggin will meet with you to learn more about your goals for your oral health and provide you with information about periodontal options for your case.

Your consultation will include a comprehensive periodontal education and oral cancer screening, as well as necessary dental radiographs and a thorough periodontal evaluation.  We will also take extraoral and intraoral photographs which aid us in treatment planning and evaluation.

We will communicate our finding and your periodontal treatment plan with you and your general dentist to coordinate any needed restorative services and follow up care.

We make every attempt to stay on schedule to minimize waiting at the time of your appointment.

To ensure that your appointment starts on time during your initial consultation, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Your referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist (if your dentist takes digital radiographs, please have these transferred to our office prior to your appointment)
  • If you do not have x-rays, please let us know when you make your appointment.
  • If you have dental benefits, please bring any forms or documentation with you to the appointment.

Patient Registration and Medical History Forms can be accessed from our website.  Please fill these out completely and submit them online.  They can also be printed and brought to your appointment.
