What to expect at your first dental appointmentDuring your first appointment, the teeth are often cleaned unless you have scheduled for a different specific purpose. Our dentists get to know you by asking questions, listening to your concerns, and discussing your medical history. A comprehensive examination is performed. This includes a visual exam, periodontal evaluation, and diagnosis. We examine your teeth and bone structures, analyze your gums and oral tissues, and assess your bite to check for problems. X-rays are taken to check for cavities or potential underlying problems. It is a thorough dental visit, but it provides the baseline for your future appointments. We work with you to develop a treatment plan designed to address immediate issues, minimize future problems, and plan cosmetic enhancements, if desired.
New patient information and insurance optionFor your convenience, we have our new patient forms online. Please complete and submit the forms prior to your first dental visit to save on wait time. If you are unable to complete the forms ahead of time, plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to handle paperwork. Also, bring your insurance card and driver’s license.
The connection between oral and overall health is undeniable. This makes dental care necessary. We understand that the cost of dental services is worrisome to many patients. We work with many individual dental plans, full coverage dental insurance, PPO dental insurance, and more to offer affordable dental care. If you do not have dental insurance, we will work with you to determine affordable payment plans or methods.
