Patient Forms, Map and Directions to Herndon Office
Your first visit to Dr. Hudgins establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.
Typically, the first visit will be with Dr. Hudgins and his assistant. They will go over your medical history and take any necessary x-rays. Dr. Hudgins will review the x-rays and begin his exam. This initial visit will last approximately one hour. The first visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental health. Depending on your treatment goals and needs, Dr. Hudgins will customize your dental treatment plan. He will go over his recommended treatment, and one of our patient-care coordinators will prepare and print your personal treatment plan to your review. We will also determine your personal applicable insurance coverage for your recommended treatment plan, and discuss the estimated cost involved. We will also go over all of our possible payment options, answer any questions you may have, and then schedule you for your next visit. Our goal is for you to fully understand your treatment and the cost involved before receiving the services Dr. Hudgins recommends.
Please note that typically a "cleaning" is not done during the first visit. Experience has shown us that every patient's needs are different. We cannot anticipate what kind of cleaning a patient needs or how much time is required without an examination. In order to provide the best treatment possible, the appropriate amount of time should be reserved for preventive care. After the first visit, cleanings and checkups will be done at the same time.
Our mission is to listen first, and then deliver individualized and uncompromised care. To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
- Listening to those we are privileged to serve.
- Earn the trust and respect of patients, profession and community.
- Exceed your expectations.
- Ensure a creative, challenging and compassionate professional environment.
- Strive for continuous improvement at all levels.
