First impressions matter, and at Burien Dental Clinic, we want you to have a great first experience that sets the stage for a mutually rewarding long-term relationship. Here's some information that will help you get the most out of your appointment, but please don't hesitate to call us at (206) 244-1618 if you have any questions!
What to Bring to Your First Appointment
Please bring a picture ID like a driver's license or passport and any insurance cards.
You can save time at our office by filling out your forms online, but if this isn’t possible, please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before your appointment. We want you to get the most out of your time with Dr. Blake Sessions!
When You Arrive
Every time you visit us, you will be treated like family and welcomed warmly by Liz or Cathy, our front desk team.
If you completed your paperwork at home, help yourself to some complimentary water or coffee and browse through one of our popular magazines. If you want to stay connected, ask us for our wi-fi password so you can catch up on your emails and Facebook.
Your First Exam with Dr. Sessions
We will show you to your treatment room promptly at your appointed time. Our dental assistant Bilma will take photos and digital x-rays as needed. Dr. Sessions will then introduce himself to you, ask you about any concerns you might have, and perform a comprehensive examination.
Dr. Sessions will explain his findings and answer your questions. He will develop a personalized plan for treatment and talk to you about your insurance coverage and financial responsibility.
In many cases, we will do a dental cleaning, but it depends on what Dr. Sessions finds during his exam. You may need a more thorough type of cleaning than we can fit into your appointment, and we want to be sure we allow plenty of time to get your mouth clean and healthy.
