First Visit

firstvistPrior to your first appointment, we ask that you request your dental records and x-rays from your previous dentist and have them forwarded to our office.  Our doctors prefer to review this information before you arrive.  We would like you to come 15 minutes early to complete registration forms and a health history.  Our scheduling coordinators typically reserve 90 minutes for this appointment!

During your first visit, our staff will conduct an oral cancer examination, take digital photos, x-rays as needed, perform an assessment of your gums and oral structures and one of our doctors will complete a thorough examination of your teeth.  Depending on your needs, we will reserve an additional appointment with one of our dental hygienists to have your teeth cleaned.  Our doctors and staff will present you with a complete treatment plan and an estimate of the cost.  If we find that you need more extensive treatment, we may schedule a time for you to return for a treatment conference with one of our doctors and financial coordinators at no charge, thus making sure we explain things thoroughly. We want you to leave our office feeling comfortable and educated about the treatment and financing options that are available to optimize your oral health.
