Be prepared. You’ve probably heard this advice a hundred times. Be prepared for exams. Be prepared for life. Be prepared for disappointment. Be prepared for the rapture and/or zombie apocalypse (depending on who you’re talking to.) It’s an essential life exercise, one that we’re constantly practicing, or forgetting to do and regretting it later. Even on an emotional level, being prepared makes life easier, less stressful. That’s why we’ve prepared this guide to your next dentist appointment. Since most dentist appointments are checkups, that’s the kind of visit we’ll outline.
Although your experience might vary slightly from one dentist to the next, this is what you can expect at a general checkup at Penn Dental Medicine and most other practices.
