Your First Appointment – What to Expect
For your first dental appointment, we ask that you arrive no later than 30 minutes prior to your appointment time for paperwork and check-in. Please bring the following items:
- Drivers license or state ID
- Proof of Income (paystub, tax return)
- Proof of Residency (utility bill, mailing)
Your first appointment will take one hour and will include x-rays, a comprehensive exam, oral cancer screening, hypertension and diabetes check, oral hygiene instruction, treatment plan, and cleaning (if time allows). You will be expected to pay the balance of the new patient visit in full before scheduling additional work.
Church Health offers same-day dental emergency appointments for established patients, waitlist patients, and MEMPHIS Plan patients. All emergency appointment times are offered on a first-call basis. We encourage patients needing emergency care to call early to secure an appointment time so we can help you that day. We do NOT accept walk-in patients.
