First Dental Appointment
Your first visit with us will give us an opportunity to introduce you to our caring and professional staff who are dedicated to ensuring you are pampered and relaxed.
What to Expect:
Our new patient experience will last about 90 minutes and will consist of the following:
- A thorough discussion of all of your concerns
- A detailed medical and dental history review
- Comprehensive dental and periodontal examination
- Oral Cancer Examination
- Head and Neck cancer screening
Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit. This is because not every patient requires the same type of cleaning. At your first visit, the doctor examines and diagnoses the health of your mouth, then discusses that with you and makes certain you are scheduled for the most appropriate type of care following your visit.

What else to Bring
Make a list of questions you may have for the dentist and dental team. Think about past dental experiences you have had and what you think would have made them better, then write it down and bring it with you. We want to tailor each appointment with us to your needs.
If you have had X-rays in the recent past (6 months) we still may ask you if we can take up date radiographs in our office with our digital X-ray system. The doctor is not able to rely on old X-rays in every case and updated, clear, concise radiographs are preferred to ensure you are getting the best possible examination and treatment recommendations.
For patients with complex dental concerns, it may be necessary to schedule you with a separate consultation and treatment plan presentation appointment following your first visit. This is to ensure that you have the necessary time to discuss the doctor’s recommendations with the doctor and dental team and ask any questions you may have.
