Your First Visit

Our Office

Whether you are new to the area or simply new to our practice, we’re excited to meet you and begin a lifelong relationship centered on helping you keep your smile beautiful and radiant. We’d like to take a few minutes to visit with you and help you know what to expect on your first visit, and what you can expect us to do.

Intake Forms

The first time you visit us, we will need to spend some time gathering relevant information such as your personal information, contact numbers, email address, street address, and so on. We will also gather your insurance information so we can work directly with your insurance provider on your first and subsequent visits. This will save you time and hassle in the long-run.

We will also collect a medical history on you. This may seem unnecessary, but remember that your dental health is tied to your overall health. Thus, what happens to you in one area of your health may affect what happens to you in the area of your dental health, and vice versa. For this reason, among the other information we collect, we will ask for a medical history so we are aware of any potential issues. This helps us to provide you with the best care possible.

Your First Examination

The first time you see us, we will take a little bit longer than usual because we need to build a solid profile of your dental health. In addition to the things, we will do on every visit—cleaning and scaling your teeth, examining the gums for disease and cancer, polishing your teeth, and so on—we will conduct a thorough examination and may take X-rays of your teeth and jaw in order to help us establish a baseline of your dental condition.

In addition to tooth decay, we care about ensuring that your jaw is properly positioned, your teeth are correctly aligned, and your gums do not have any hidden issues. For this reason, we will use the X-rays we take; we will keep them on file and periodically take new ones to monitor the development of any new conditions.

After we’ve finished with the cleaning and the examination, we will sit down with you and give you a detailed set of instructions to facilitate your performance of oral hygiene techniques. We will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and will listen to any concerns you voice. Further, in the event that you do have some dental health condition that we discover in the course of the examination, we will give you a proposed treatment plan for that condition.

We Believe in Communication

As with any doctor, we need to be able to speak candidly to you regarding your dental health, and you need to feel free to ask us anything you need to. Rest assured that everything that happens in our office is confidential. We are here for you, and we care about your dental health.
