What To Expect at Your First Dental Visit

Dental practices of the past often put their patients through a complicated and uncomfortable process for their first visit. At our practice, you can expect the following for your first visit with us:

  • On-Time Scheduling
  • Easy Checkin & Checkout
  • Minimal Paperwork
  • Comfortable, Worry-Free Care
  • Attentive & Helpful Staff

During Your Appointment

During your initial appointment, your hygienist will take comfortable and fast digital x-rays, then measure your gums to determine which type of dental cleaning is right for you. After your cleaning or periodontal (gum) therapy, one of our dentists will sit down with you, as well, to look over your records, examine your mouth, and take the time to discuss any dental concern you may have.

Since we do not double book appointment times, your hygienist and dentist will always have adequate time reserved for you. Our goal is for you to leave every visit feeling fully informed about your dental health and treatment options without being rushed.

Additional Dental Treatment

If a patient needs additional dental treatment, such as a filling, and wants to get the process started immediately following the new patient appointment, we are able and pleased to accommodate that in the majority of cases. This enables us to fix problems before they get worse, and it saves you from having to make more trips to our office. When more extensive dental work is needed, we’ll talk you through your treatment and financial options and your schedule at the end of your cleaning visit.
