Read these frequently asked questions to learn what to expect.
On your first visit to our office, please arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have time to fill out our New Patient and Health History forms.
While you wait for your appointment to begin, you can relax in our waiting area where you'll find lots of reading materials and comfortable seating. We also have a play area if you are bringing your children.
Your first appointment will be approximately 90 minutes long. Your dentist will begin by talking to you about your oral health needs and health history. Based on this conversation and a thorough dental exam, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan just for you.
Your comprehensive examination will include an oral cancer screening, a full-mouth series of x-rays, photos, and a thorough exam of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw.
Throughout your appointment, your dentist or hygienist will take the time to answer your questions about your dental health and treatment options.
