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 take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then, 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. At your next visit, 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.
The New Patient Coordinator also assists the doctor in the oral cancer screening, periodontal exam and the occlusal exam. During the visual and x-ray examination the doctor can locate areas of decay on the chewing surfaces of your teeth and between the teeth. We use the latest equipment and will evaluate the condition of your teeth using an intra-oral camera. The minute camera will transfer the image of your teeth onto a monitor that you will be able to see.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- A list of medications and or supplements
- Have your x-rays sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Our new patient forms are now filled out upon arrival at the office on an Ipad so please feel free to arrive a few minutes earlier than your scheduled reservation time. Please let us know if you would like assistance filling out the Ipad when you arrive.
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.
