What to expect on your first visit:
We strive to provide the most pleasant and informative dental experience. Your first visit will consist of a thorough dental examination and an explanation of your treatment needs. Digital X-rays or other diagnostic images will be taken to provide a more detailed assessment of your oral health as needed. You will be asked to complete a Patient Information & Health History form to allow us to manage your dental care in a manner best suited for your particular health needs. Forms available for download to expedite your visit, link to form here.
Most first visits are approximately 45 minutes long but may take longer depending on your dental needs.Pre-existing medical conditions
Our doctors will review your full health history asking detailed questions regarding certain medical conditions in order to provide you with the safest and most comfortable experience possible. If needed our doctor’s work directly with your physician or other health care provider to ensure all necessary precautions are met in your dental treatment. Please provide us with a thorough list of any medications you are currently taking and of any known allergies you may have. We do this with your safety in mind.
Digital X-rays vs. Film
We use digital imaging with your health and safety in mind. Digital images avoid environmental pollutants encountered with film processing, provide less radiation exposure to the patient, take much less time to process, and allow for instantly communicating images without distortion.
We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. Please allow approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour for your first visit. If you are in pain or an emergency situation presents itself, every attempt will be made to see you that day. We make every effort to minimize waiting time. You can help us by arriving on time to your appointment. You can download and fill out all necessary paperwork here (link to download page), expediting your visit.
Your appointment time is reserved especially for you. If you cannot keep your appointment, please give us as much advance notice as possible so that we may accommodate other patients. To avoid any fees, 24 hours notice is required and appreciated.
See below for our hours of operation at both of our locations. We provide earlier appointments on a case by case basis in order to expedite dental emergencies.
