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.
Your first appointment will be our information gathering time. We will review your dental and medical history forms. The doctor will do a complete examination consisting of an oral cancer screening, gum exam with periodontal assessment, blood pressure screening and take any necessary x-rays. The doctor, with your help, will create your individual treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.
Everyone's mouth is different, therefore, not every person needs the same type of cleaning. This initial appointment will also allow us to determine which type of cleaning you will need and the appropriate time to schedule with our hygienist.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
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 to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
