Visiting the dentist can be hard to plan sometimes, especially if you’re a new patient and have to remember bringing in your dental insurance card, filling out forms, and following any protocols that you learn about when you schedule your appointment. It’s different at Weldon Dental of Rome! Our team makes each experience you have with us hassle-free and easy. We’ve included all of the information you need to help you prepare for your visit below, in one convenient place. If you have any additional questions, be sure to call our dental office and we’d be happy to help.
If your first appointment with us is a checkup and cleaning, you can expect it to last about an hour. Once you’re shown back to one of our treatment rooms, you’ll have an opportunity to meet Dr. Weldon one-on-one to discuss any concerns or questions you have about your dental health. One of our dental hygienists or assistants will then collect any necessary diagnostic information, including X-rays or intraoral camera photos. Dr. Weldon will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums in search of any signs of oral health problems, and before you leave, we’ll thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, leaving your smile feeling healthy and refreshed.
We ask that all of our new patients take the time to click on the link below to fill out our forms at home. That way, when you arrive, we’ll be able to immediately input your information into our system and begin your appointment. If you have any difficulty accessing them, let us know by calling our dental office.

For patients who don’t have dental insurance or who are looking into receiving treatments that aren’t covered by their benefits, we also offer additional financing through CareCredit, our trusted, third-party financer.
