Front Desk

First, we need to find out a bit about your medical history. This information is important because it will help determine which treatment options are right for you. After all, our mission is to provide the best possible care for you. If your medical history is complex, our team may need to modify treatment. For your convenience, complete and submit our Intake Form before coming to see us, or download it and bring it with you.

Treatment 
Coordination

If you have further questions about recommended treatments or how to better understand your insurance policy (or complete documents), our team will gladly help. From general questions about options, to sending a predetermination to your insurance provider for more complex treatments like dentures, to signing up for new-patient specials, we want to make sure all your important questions are answered, so that you know you’ve got it all covered. If you ever have more questions, just give us a call.

Hygiene

Your first hygiene appointment will be longer than most, even if you had regular appointments at another dentist in Mandeville before coming to us. That's because we want to get to know you before we treat you. We need that extra time to create a mouth-map to track changes over time, making it possible to more-accurately determine your oral health needs and concerns. Your hygienist is a “patient-education specialist” who will happily help you with the knowledge necessary to take care of your teeth at home.

Checkup

Meet Dr. Foto and discuss your personal oral health needs and desires for family dentistry. Here you’ll learn what we find while we take time with you to determine the personalized approach that works best for you. Whether we set up a regular care schedule, design a treatment plan to address decay or gum issues, or discuss your cosmetic concerns, this is your chance to tell us what you like and don’t like about your smile and general oral health. Then we work with you to help you meet your goals.
