Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we want to get to know you personally, understand your needs and your wishes. We will review your dental and medical history digital forms, and take photos of your mouth, and X-rays of your teeth.
Then, the doctor will meet with you, perform a very thorough examination, performing a head and neck exam for an oral cancer screening, and look at the teeth and gums, facial muscles, and the TMJ (temporomandibular joint).
The doctor will then discuss the results of your examination, review your photos and X-rays with you to help create your own individual treatment plan and answer any questions that you may have. At the subsequent visit, one of our hygienists will develop a custom plan for the health of your gums, clean and polish your teeth, as well as check your gums for any signs of gingivitis or gum disease.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Personal government issued ID
- Your medical and dental insurance cards
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing for your first visit with our office, please remember that your appointment may last between 45 and 75 minutes.
