Office Visits

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.

Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.

At your first visit we will

  • Review your medical and dental history forms and
  • Take x-rays of your teeth and mouth.
  • Perform a periodontal exam to ensure that your gums adhere tightly to your teeth, that no periodontal disease or bone loss is occurring.

After that, the doctor will meet with you to create your own individual treatment plan and answer any questions that you may have discuss your x-rays.

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
