Your First Visit

We are always excited to welcome new patients to our practice. This first visit will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. Below you’ll find a few things that we asked you to come prepared with and an idea of what to expect from us.

What we need from you

  • Your chief concerns
  • Any significant medical history
  • Let us know if there has been a panoramic X-ray taken within the past year
  • Don’t have insurance? We can see if we can offer some assistance
  • Have insurance? We take most dental insurances and our experienced staff will make dealing with your insurance company a breeze.

What to expect from us

  • Full mouth X-rays & oral cancer screening
  • Review medical and dental history
  • Discuss what treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem
  • Create a comprehensive dental plan unique to your needs
  • Discuss how long treatment will take and how much it will cost
  • Answer any questions about insurance coverage and payment options

While we can often answer general questions about treatment during your initial visit, we will address specific concerns after a careful analysis of your records.

From there, we will schedule a follow-up appointment as needed. Our main goal is to ensure that you leave our office with a clear understanding of your treatment plan, what it will consist of and how long it will take.
