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 may take X-rays of your teeth and mouth and check your teeth and gums for any cavities or signs of gum disease. We will also be screening for oral cancer and other oral conditions. Then, the doctor will discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. At your next visit, in most cases, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis. You will also receive instruction on how to take care of your teeth and gums.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form, if one was mailed to you. You may also download a copy from the Patient Forms section of this website.
- 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.
