Your First Visit

During your first visit, we will review all the information provided by your general dentist, your dental and medical history forms, and any current radiographs of your teeth and mouth.  If needed, additional radiographs may be taken during this visit.  The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your oral health with you.  We will collaborate with you to create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.  

Some patients require specialized teeth cleaning which our periodontal hygienists perform.  If this is the case, we often recommend hygiene visits that alternate between our office and your general dentist's office.  We encourage all patients to maintain a close relationship with their general dentist in order to receive optimal overall care.

Please remember to bring these with you to your first appointment

  • Your completed new patient forms
  • Your insurance card
  • A nightguard/biteguard if you have one

We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 40 and 90 minutes.
