Your First Visit
The caring team at Kennedy Dental has been warmly welcoming new patients to our practice for over 40 years. We are honored that you’ve chosen us to serve your family’s dental needs, and each new meeting is another opportunity to make a memorable first impression.
Starting out with a new dental practice can seem a little intimidating, but our caring dental team can assure you that in no time at all, you’ll see that you’re an important part of our extended dental family.
To help you get started, here are some helpful things to know about your first visit.
How to Schedule
Schedule your first appointment by calling (402) 291-3535 and speaking to a member of our dental team, or reach us using our convenient online contact form.
Forms and Paperwork
Please bring a photo ID, along with any dental insurance cards you plan to use.
You’ll find the forms you need to bring with you here, and we ask that you download and complete them before your first visit to Kennedy Dental. If you can’t complete them beforehand, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment so you can fill them out here at our office.
Your First Appointment
When you call to schedule your first visit, our dental team will ask about your preferences. Would you like to speak to one of our dentists, or are you more interested in just having your teeth cleaned and then going from there? Most patients opt to see both, but at Kennedy Dental, we’ll tailor your first appointment to fit your needs!
Every new patient receives a periodontal screening first so that we can determine what type of dental cleaning you require. If you don’t have any signs of gum disease, we’ll perform a routine dental cleaning. If our hygienist finds evidence of gum disease, we will recommend a different type of teeth cleaning and may need to schedule it for another day to be sure you get the quality dental care you need.
