What To Expect
Thank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive. When you arrive for your first visit, please arrive fifteen minutes before your scheduled time and be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office, unless you have filled them out in advance.
Your initial exam, unless your appointment is for an emergency, will last approximately ninety minutes. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment. Generally, X-rays will be taken allowing your doctor to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position and teeth decay. A full periodontal (gum) evaluation will be provided to determine the health of your gums along with suggestions to help you care for your mouth. An oral cancer screening will be performed as well as photographs taken of all oral structures. In most cases, we will provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment. After that time, we will schedule an appointment with one of our registered dental hygienists for your periodontal treatment.
We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal: keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth and gums healthy!
