Office Visits

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 visit is all about you!  Our goals are to spend some time with you learning about you.  Every patient has different reasons for seeing the dentist.  Some patients may not have been seen a dentist for awhile, while others have just moved.

Whatever your reason for coming is, we want to satisfy your goals.  Our new patients get a full hour with the doctor and assistant.  This allows us to spend ample time discussing, educating, and forming whatever plan may be needed.

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth, as well as high-resolution photos so we can easily show you what we see. We will help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.

Once your goals and treatment needs have been determined, we will schedule an appointment with a dental hygienist. Depending on your overall gum health, your hygienist will either clean and polish your teeth or start more involved gum therapy.

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 a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit the dentist, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on what you are scheduled for.
