First Visit

firstvisitThank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the quality of dental care you receive.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your current desires. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms.

Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any panoramic or full mouth series of x-rays taken within the past 3 years and any bitewing xrays taken within the last year.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Comprehensive Exam

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Generally xrays will be taken and your doctor will perform a thorough exam.   Your doctor will evaluate your mouth for tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. These diagnostic records are critical to the evaluation, which will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.

Open Communication

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
