Your First Visit
Dr. Angela Gonzalez and our dental team love welcoming new patients to Artistic Smiles. Our goal is to streamline your first dental visit so that we get the most out of our time together.
First Impressions Matter
Your first visit to Artistic Smiles sets the tone for all future visits. Positive first impressions are crucial, so we go out of their way to ensure that every detail of your experience with us exceeds your expectations.
When you arrive for your visit, a cheerful member of our front office team will welcome you warmly. They will introduce themselves and help you get started with your paperwork
What to Bring to Your First Appointment
Please bring your insurance card and driver’s license. If you have current dental x-rays, please arrange to have them emailed to us beforehand, so we have them available for your first exam.
We request that you fill out your forms online to save time when you arrive for your appointment. The less time you spend filling out paperwork at our office, the more time we have to devote our attention to you.
Meeting Our Team
Your first stop is with our dental hygienist who will take a few minutes to review your medical and dental history, discuss your concerns, and answer questions. Next, your hygienist will take x-rays as necessary, chart your teeth to note their condition. Depending on how much time we have, she will also perform a thorough cleaning and review proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Next, you will meet Dr. Gonzalez, who will introduce herself and chat with you for a few minutes to get to know you. Dr. Gonzalez will discuss the results of your exam and teeth cleaning. She takes all your unique needs into account when planning for treatment to deliver personalized dental care. If it turns out that you require significant dental work, we will take one step at a time and guide you comfortably through the process.
Reviewing Your Financial Options
Once we have a plan in place, a knowledgeable member of our team will discuss your insurance dental benefits with you. Before we start any treatment, you will have a clear idea of what your out-of-pocket expense will be so you can plan your budget accordingly.

We believe that after one visit, you will feel confident that you have found your new dental home at Artistic Smiles. Please call our Nassau Bay, TX dental office at (972) 735-8900 or use our convenient online contact form to get started!
