For some people, going to the dentist is anxiety-inducing. We completely understand. You might have had a bad experience previously or even as a child that makes the dentist the last place you want to be.
We know there’s some added pressure when it comes to finding a new dentist. If it’s something that gives you anxiety, we want to help.
We’re here to ease that pressure for you and your family. The most important part of dental health is seeing your dentist consistently, so we want to make sure that we provide a welcoming, comfortable environment that makes you want to return.
Getting ready for your first visit
Being prepared for your first visit helps everything run smoothly and can make the experience faster and easier.
We provide all our new patient forms on our website. You can complete them at your leisure and review all the policies and procedures as carefully as you’d like. There’s no pressure to complete the documents quickly when you do them online.
You can find them all here to get started.
What to expect at your first visit
First, we’ll start with an office tour. We want you to feel comfortable in our office and we’re happy to show you around when you arrive.
If you’re someone who wants to know what to expect before you even arrive, we also have a virtual tour on our website to help you get familiar with our office. You can find that here.
Then, we’ll provide you with a complete diagnostic profile which includes a full series of X-rays, a complimentary set of intraoral images and oral cancer screening, and a complete comprehensive exam that will determine what cleaning will benefit your specific needs.
We’ll review your entire treatment plan with you and answer all the questions you have. There are no dumb questions so feel free to ask us whatever you’re worried about.
Then, we’ll provide a financial estimate – including any insurance benefits to be utilized, as well as payment options available, and any educational materials based on your treatment needs.
