New Patient Information
Our mission is to work together as a team with our primary focus on Dental Wellness for our patients. We will provide the highest quality in dental treatment with an emphasis on comfort and safety. We will listen to our patients and understand their dental health goals and individual needs.
What to Expect
Being well-prepared for your dental appointment will ensure that our staff has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with our caring staff. We all look forward to meeting you at your first visit.
Your First Appointment
Our staff will take the extra time to discuss your concerns, your individual needs, and your apprehensions. We can help you feel more relaxed. See the “Services” section for more information on your comfort. If you would like additional help on relieving your dental anxiety please visit this section of our website.
In general, we begin by asking you to prioritize your dental concerns and questions. The doctor will also address any fears or apprehensions that exist. This will be followed by a thorough examination of the teeth and soft tissues and necessary diagnostic X-rays. If there is no gum disease present we will do a cleaning at your first visit. Finally, the doctor will discuss any treatment recommendations with you.
We think it is best to see children for their first visit between the ages of 2 to 3. If you notice something unusual prior to that time, please call for an appointment at a younger age. Our biggest priority at their first visit is to make it FUN. If they are apprehensive, we will make them more comfortable. This is the foundation of their lifelong dental health.
