New Patient Information

Are you new to the DFW area? In the market for a new dentist? Looking for a service your current dentist doesn’t offer? If so, welcome to Universal Dental at ERL Thornton Fwy! Thanks to our team of dentists including a certified pediatric dentist and orthodontist, you can trust that we’ll always have exactly what your family’s smiles need. On this page, you’ll find all the basic information you need to know before scheduling your first appointment.

Your First Visit

No matter which one of our convenient locations you visit, you’ll always be greeted with a smile and a big Texas “Hello!” Our friendly staff will give you a brief tour of the office, and then you’ll get to meet your dentist. After a quick chat, they’ll take some x-rays and other images of your mouth and perform a thorough oral exam. With this, they’ll be able to completely explain the current state of your dental health, and then they’ll discuss your possible treatment options with you.

Download Our Forms

To help your appointment start as quickly as possible, we’ve made our forms available right here as a download. Simply print them, fill them out, and bring them to your next appointment to help things fly by even faster. If you choose to fill them out in our office, please be sure to give yourself about 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
