Instructions for Your First Visit to Our Practice
We value your time, and strive to make your visits at Signature Smiles of LA pleasant and productive. We understand that you have many choices in whom who want to be your family dentist, and we appreciate your trust in our Encino practice.
Your initial visit with Dr. Mahooti, dentist in Encino, establishes the basis for your personal dental plan. During this visit, our goal is to get to know you, and help you get to know us. We will spend some time discussing your medical and dental history, as well as the concerns you may have related to your current state of oral health or the cosmetic value of your smile.
If you have a medical condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, do let us know. This will enable us to tailor care to your precise needs. Also, if dentistry has been a challenge for you in the past and you struggle with dental anxiety, we want to know so your fears can be managed while we help you attend to your dental needs.
