Scheduling Information

We believe in quality one-on-one time with each of our patients and that’s why we never double book appointments. You deserve our undivided attention when it comes to taking care of your oral health. We ask that you please notify us at least two days in advance if you have to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

Family Block Appointments

Need to schedule multiple appointments for you and your family? Family block scheduling is a convenient option that lets you bring everyone in for their dental visit either one after another or at the same time. Instead of making trips back and forth from our office, your whole family can see the dentist in a block of time on one day.

Emergency Dental Visits

Emergencies can come up when you least expect it. If you are experiencing a severe toothache, have had a tooth knocked out, or have another major dental emergency, please call us as soon as possible at 812-346-6884. We offer same day emergency care so you can be seen immediately.

New Patient Forms

When you first visit North Vernon Dental, we will need you fill out our new patient forms. The information you provide is kept confidential and allows us to provide you with more personalized care.

To speed up the check-in process, you are welcome to download and complete the forms before you arrive. Otherwise, we ask that you please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early for your appointment so that we can still see you at your scheduled time.

What to Expect at Your Initial Visit

During your first appointment with us, we will take X-rays, clean and polish your teeth, and then perform a routine exam, where we check for any tooth decay, misalignment, or other oral concerns. Our dentist will also sit down with you to discuss what your goals and needs are in order to create an appropriate treatment plan. We want you to feel comfortable in our care so we welcome any and all questions. We recommend allotting around an hour to and hour and a half for your first appointment.

While with us, we invite you to take advantage of our different patient amenities. We have TVs throughout our office, including in our private treatment rooms, and you’re welcome to pull up your favorite show on Netflix. We also have blankets available as well as toys, books, and games for kids.
