What to expect at your first appointment
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, take the necessary low radiation, digital X-rays, models and photographs and complete a comprehensive examination of your teeth and surrounding tissues, including an oral cancer screening.
Then, the doctor will meet with you to discuss our findings, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Following this appointment, either on the same day or different day, we will set up an appointment with our hygienist for a cleaning or any treatment recommended by the doctor.
