Patient Forms, Map and Directions to Gurnee Office
We would like to welcome you to our office and give you a brief over view of what we so proudly provide during your initial exam. Your initial exam will include:
- A review of your medical and dental history
- X-rays as indicated
- Photos of your teeth (reviewed with you as both an educational tool and record keeping.)
- An oral cancer screening.
- Documenting existing restorations and missing teeth
- Identifying decay, cracks in teeth and failing restorations.
- An occlusal examination (your bite and how it affects your teeth).
- A periodontic examination (to determine the health of your gums and supporting bone).
- TMJ examination (the health of your jaw joints)
Please note: a dental cleaning is NOT provided during the initial exam.
Upon completion of your initial exam, Dr. Mackey will review our findings with the aid of your dental x-rays, your photos, and any possible study models acquired.
Our Goal at Mackey Dental is to provide our patients with individualized care that exceeds their hopes and expectations.
We will achieve this by listening closely first to your wants and needs, followed by an incredibly thorough examination. (or) what will most likely be the most complete and thorough dental examination you have ever had.
Our entire dental team will pay close attention to your needs. We believe in a team approach in order to achieve this goal. We promise to make ALL of our patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible while providing exceptional care. We strive to be the dental office that our patients love to talk about!
Upon reserving your first appointment with our office, you will be sent a welcome letter, a Health History Form, and a self addressed stamped envelope in the mail. It is appreciated if you could fill out your health history form and send it back to our office as to expedite your initial exam. If you are unable to send it to our office in time for your initial exam, please feel free to bring it with you on your first visit along with your photo ID and proof of insurance.
