Office Visits

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.

During your first visit, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Take X-rays and photos of your teeth and mouth
  • Clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay (cavities) or gingivitis or gum disease

During your checkup and teeth cleaning, the doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-rays and photos, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.  We always want to make sure that you are comfortable with your treatment options, sometimes that means we need to sit down at another time and review your options with you, and we are always happy to do so.

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:

  • Your completed patient forms
  • Your insurance card, dental and medical and your plan book if it is available

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.  The initial appointment is usually about 2 hours, and it is very thorough.
