What to Expect During Your First Visit
We know that going to the dentist can be an overwhelming experience, especially first time visits. That’s why we work our hardest to ensure that all of our patients have the most pleasurable experience possible. We want to take all the concerns and anxieties of visiting the dentist away from you and your family.
Our goal is to make sure that our patients receive the very best care while in our office which include all of the following:
1) A warm, comfortable, inviting atmosphere
2) A doctor and team that treat and care for you like family
3) A collaborative dental treatment plan between you and the dental team that respects you
4) A dental home where patient’s continued support and referral of friends and family is sincerely appreciated
Our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination and discuss any concerns and/or treatment that you may require. This examination will identify the following: existing restorations, new conditions such as tooth decay, gum/periodontal disease, and even failing existing restorations. After a thorough examination a teeth cleaning may be performed during your visit or may be scheduled for a follow up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. Every effort will be made to complete your cleaning at your first visit.
When should I arrive for my appointment?
You, of course, may arrive at your appointment time. If you would like to come 15 minutes or so before your scheduled appointment, it will allow for getting some of the paperwork completed early to speed up getting you in to see the dentist.
