First Appointment FAQS
When calling to make an appointment/ appointment inquiries through website
If an appointment request is made through our www.GouldDentistry.com Kari will contact you to schedule an appointment via phone, email, or both.
The questions you may be asked are:
When was the last time you have been seen by a dentist? (Who provided your previous dental care and what dental care did you receive? May we acquire x-rays from your previous office)?
What are you seeking regarding your dental care?
Are you having any specific issues?
- What symptoms have you been experiencing?
- Where in the mouth is the issue? It is best to be as specific as possible to help our dental team be efficient and prepared for your visit to help you in the best way possible. (upper right/ lower right/ upper left/ lower left) (front/ back)
- Are your teeth hot/ cold sensitive?
- Do you have any bleeding, swelling, or tenderness in your gums?
- How long have you been experiencing symptoms?
Do you have dental benefits you want to utilize?
If so, then send via text, (414)-902-3470 or email us info@GouldDentistry.com the front and back of your dental benefit card so that Kari can determine you specific benefits.
Have you ever been premedicated prior to dental treatment?
If you are not sure, you probably have never been and won’t need to be. Usually, people who have had orthopedic surgery or heart valve replacements are told take anti-biotics prior to receiving dental care to prevent infection.

What should I expect at my first appointment?
Plan to spend 90 minutes with us for your first visit. Dr.Gould will review your dental and medical histories, perform a complete examination of your mouth, assessing the health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints and complete an oral cancer screening. If x-ray images are needed he will recommend them at the time of your appointment. Dr.Gould will discuss with you any dental concerns he may see and appropriate treatment options as needed.
If I have a specific problem: Dr.Gould will assess that issue and discuss treatment options, including fees and time required to complete the treatment.
If you would like your teeth cleaned: Dr.Gould will assess your gum health and recommend the appropriate type of cleaning you may need. We then will schedule the recommended cleaning with our registered hygienist, Angela.
We welcome new patients and look forward to meeting you!
