New Patients

Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make your care as individual as you are.

Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications and can influence your treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of your medications and their dosages (including vitamins and supplements).

A full-mouth series of x-rays and a comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.

APPOINTMENT EXPECTATIONS

If you haven’t been to a dentist for a while, please don’t worry. You’ve made an important decision – no need to feel guilty!

Once your entire exam is complete, one of our dentists will talk with you about their findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.

Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well. So, come in, recline and unwind – you’re in great hands.

LET’S GET YOU SCHEDULED!

APPOINTMENT EXPECTATIONS

After being greeted with a smiling face, the front desk staff will check you in and make sure all of the needed information is gathered and up to date. They will also be able to assist you with any questions you may have.

Following check in, one of our friendly hygienists will greet you in the lobby and escort you to an exam room. The hygienist will go over the steps of the exam with you and what you can expect, as well as answer any questions you have.

Generally, a full series of x-rays are taken to be able to accurately and effectively diagnose and treat the patient. Then, the hygienist will examine your gums and check for any abnormal findings. Following the x-rays and exam, the hygienist will clean your teeth and polish them to remove plaque and bacteria and make it difficult for new bacteria to buildup.

The dentist will review your x-rays and come in to speak with you. The dentist will do a brief overview with you and perform a complete oral examination to better assess your dental and overall health.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Following your examination and x-rays, our dentists are available to answer any questions you have and go over treatment options with you. Rather than pushing our services on you, we believe in designing a treatment plan with you every step of the way and taking into consideration what our patients want to accomplish with their treatment.

After your initial appointment, we encourage you to schedule your next appointment for continuing care and taking care of your needs. Our front desk is happy to find a convenient time for you. During that time, they will also answer any questions about payment or insurance coverages.
