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 will review your dental and medical history forms and perform an oral evaluation including taking digital x-rays of your teeth. An oral cancer screening will also be preformed using our Velscope Screening System. The doctor will meet with you to discuss your x-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
During this visit, you will have an opportunity to meet one of our hygienists. She will perform a periodontal evaluation and will explain the results of that exam. She will make recommendations to help you obtain the best results for the health of your gums (periodontal health).
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.
