New Patient Information

At Santavicca Dental Professionals, communication is the most critical element in the dentist-patient relationship. We empower our patients by providing the knowledge needed to understand the procedures available to you so that you can make well-informed decisions. Our practice is as high touch as it is high-tech. We invest as much time in building relationships as we do in implementing innovative technology and pioneering techniques. We listen to you, discuss your concerns and aspirations, and together find a plan that’s tailored to meet your needs.

We are always happy to welcome new patients here at Santavicca Dental Professionals. If you are interested in becoming a patient or simply want to learn more about how we can help your unique case, please give our office a call at 603-643-4142 or send us a message with the form on our Contact Us page. You can also fill out our online New Patient Forms. Once received, we will promptly contact you to discuss your needs and answer any questions you might have.

Your First Visit

Your first dental appointment will be about getting to know each other so that we can be informed about your goals, learn about your medical history, and talk to you about your treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation. Usually, though, we will schedule a second appointment with you to thoroughly review our findings and present a dental treatment plan for you that fulfills your dental health needs and esthetic goals.

You can save time on your first visit by filling out our online New Patient Forms before your arrival. Information provided on this form helps us understand your medical history and provides other useful information needed to plan your treatment.

Helpful information that you can collect and bring to your first visit:

  • X-Rays (if applicable)
  • List of current prescription medicine you are taking
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT:
Patients under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian on their first consultation visit.
Please let us know of any medical conditions or prescriptions you are taking as these could interfere with treatment.

Payment Options

We want to offer the greatest convenience to our patients, that’s why we offer many ways for you to plan and pay for your treatment. We accept Master Card, Visa, Discover, and American Express, as well as personal checks and most insurance plans.

We also offer CareCredit for dental financing.

Please feel free to contact us at (603) 643-4142 for additional dental financing information and arrangements. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have and inform you about all your options.

FAQs

How long will my first appointment be?

New patient appointments generally last 90 minutes for an adult and 60 minutes for children 4-17.

How do I become a patient?

Just give us a call or email us your contact information. You will need to request records from your former dentist.

What do I do if I have an emergency?

If your emergency occurs during office hours, call us and we will get you in to see the first available dentist. If your emergency happens after hours, call the doctors directly.

Which type of toothbrush should I use?

The brand of the toothbrush is not as critical as the type of bristle and the size of the head. A soft toothbrush with a small head is recommended because medium and hard brushes tend to cause irritation and contribute to recession of the gums. A small head allows you to get around each tooth more completely and is less likely to injure your gums. It is not necessary to “scrub” the teeth as long as you are brushing at least twice a day and visiting your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings.

Is one toothpaste better than others?

Generally, no, however, it is advisable to use a toothpaste containing fluoride to decrease the chance of dental decay. We recommend our patients use what tastes good to them as long as it contains fluoride.

How often should I floss?

Flossing once a day helps to prevent cavities from forming between the teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach and helps to keep your gums healthy.
