What To Expect at Your First Visit

1. Arrive and Meet Our Team

During your first visit with us, 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.

Please remember to bring the following with you:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • Your insurance card if you have insurance. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

2.  Comprehensive Exam

We will then perform a comprehensive exam. This initial exam will last approximately one hour where your doctor will perform a thorough assessment of your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth and generally, X-rays will be taken. All of the information from this assessment will help your doctor provide an evaluation outlining any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

3. Formulate Your Treatment Plan

Lastly, we will discuss your personalized treatment plan with our assessment and your dental goals in mind. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have. 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.
