Even though a dental checkup is a routine appointment that you have semiannually, it is important to come prepared to the appointment. Not only should you arrive 15 to 20 minutes early to your appointment, you should also bring the following documents with you to your Fort Collins family dentist:
- your dental insurance card
- a list of medications you are taking
- your primary care physician’s contact information
- your legal guardian (for minors)
Bringing all of these items with you will ensure that your appointment goes as smoothly as possible. Arriving early gives the office staff time to process paperwork, such as your insurance card. A list of medications is needed, to make sure there are no conflicting medications. If there are any questions about your medications, your Fort Collins family dentist will want to consult your primary care physician. Finally, of course, minors need a legal guardian with them.
