Your First Visit
Please arrive at the office about 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to fill out a New Patient form*. Alternatively, you can print and fill out the form in advance of your appointment and bring it with you to your first visit.
*IMPORTANT: Any form submitted by email must be encrypted, to ensure it is secure. By submitting an unencrypted email form, you are consenting to an unsecured email. Alternatively, please print off the form, complete it, and bring it to our office.
Your dentist will begin the appointment by reviewing your medical and dental history and completing a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam will include a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any x-rays that may be required.
Based on the results of your history and examination, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan for you. At your first appointment, your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you have about your dental health and treatment options.
