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.

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, talk to you about any problems you are having, or any concerns that you have.  We will take radiographs and photographs of your teeth and mouth.  The doctor will meet with you to discuss her findings and answer any questions that you have.  She may have impressions taken of your teeth to help evaluate your bite.  Esthetic considerations will be addressed as well.  Your periodontal needs are assessed at this initial appointment allowing us to schedule the correct type of cleaning appointment you will have with our hygienist. We will form a plan for your treatment together and review the financial arrangements and order of treatment that works best for you.

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.
