WHAT TO EXPECT
At Family Tree Animal Clinic (FTAC), we realize the importance of first impressions to show you we care. Therefore, we welcome you to call the clinic at (770) 450-8880 to discuss any questions and/or concerns you may have involving a pre-dental exam. If you have questions after hours, please feel free to email us at [email protected]
All pets must be up to date on vaccines prior to their hospital stay (i.e. Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, and Bordetella).
Once your companion’s visit is scheduled, please expect to receive a confirmation phone call and/or a text message 24 hours prior to the visit (*additional carrier fees may apply*). At this time, we will remind you of your appointment time.
Day of Appointment: Once you have arrived, expect a warm greeting with the acknowledgement of your appointment time and the reason for your companion’s visit. Please contact us if you will be more than 10 minutes late for your appointment.
During the Appointment: Your companion will be examined from nose to tail, all findings will be discussed, questions addressed, and a treatment plan given (indicating the services needed, recommendations, and the associated costs). At any time, please share any questions/concerns you may have regarding this conversation (i.e. prognosis, alternative options, financial options, etc.).
After the Appointment: We will complete the necessary documentation to move forward with the procedure.
Dental Rewards Program: After your pet's initial dental evaluation and disease treatment they will be enrolled in the FTAC Dental Loyalty Program which will entitle you to a $50 discount on future dental procedures that are performed within the next 12 months following each dental procedure. Please give us a call today for more information.
Most procedures should be completed by 3pm that day. However, expect a phone call during the procedure to discuss your companion's oral findings and treatment options. All patients will go home with discharge instructions, the necessary medications, and a home dental sample kit.
If test samples are taken during the procedure, these results will typically return within 7-10 business days. Please expect for us to call you with the results and treatment plan during this time frame.
