Here's what you should bring

(HealthDay News) -- Seniors need to see a dentist regularly for a checkup and cleaning. And it's a good idea to bring some information to share with your dentist.

The American Dental Association advises that you bring:

  • A written list of your over-the-counter and prescription medications, supplements, herbs and vitamins.
  • A complete list of allergies and other medical conditions.
  • The names and contact info of all of healthcare providers.
  • Information for an emergency contact, in case of a serious medical problem.
  • Insurance cards for any dental plan or Medicare.
  • Any partials or dentures, even if you don't wear them.
