Your First Visit
Creating healthy, confident smiles for life is our mission and we are glad you have taken the first step. Regular dental appointments are fundamental in maintaining your overall health and wellbeing.
Welcome to our Office
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our front office staff who will help you to check in, notify the team of your arrival, verify insurance if applicable, and guide you through any necessary new patient paperwork. You can save time by completing the new patient forms by downloading the forms from our website (Patient Resources), fill them up and email them to us.
Once completed, a member of our team will escort you from the waiting room to a treatment room where we will review your dental history, medical history, and any dental health concerns or issues. The dental assistant will then take digital x-rays for the doctor to review. Radiation from digital dental x-rays is very low, especially in comparison to traditional x-rays. For more information, speak with your dentist or dental assistant.
Your Comprehensive Oral Exam Session
As a new patient, you will first see the dentist for a comprehensive exam. During the exam session, we will discuss your health history, any specific concerns you may have. We also may check your vitals to ensure you are in good health. This is a great time to let us know if you are anxious about your appointment. Your comfort is a priority and we will work to make your appointment as smooth and comfortable as possible. During your exam, we will review your dental x-rays, complete an oral cancer screening which includes an examination of your jaw, neck, tongue and inside of your mouth. This screening is important and recommended once a year.
In many case we might need to obtain additional records like taking IO photos and primary impressions.
The initial examination session could take about an hour and is important so your dental team can identify any issues like joint problem, gum disease or cavities. Based on your exam, our provider will develop a personalized treatment plan and discuss all available treatment options with you. If dental care is needed with a specialist, proper In-house or Out-side referral will be arranged. Consultations with our In-house specialist are always Complementary.
After completing the exam, our provider may clean your teeth manually or use an advanced water powered instrument based on what is best for your specific needs. Fluoride treatments are recommended by the ADA for adults as well as children, and our provider may recommend treatment as needed.
Following that we will review tips for caring for your teeth and preventing gum disease.
Finally our provider will review your treatment plan and assure that all your questions were answered thoroughly and you will receive a comprehensive breakdown of estimated cost and insurance coverage of your recommended treatment. You will leave with a toothbrush, floss and toothpaste to keep on track with your home health routine.
Once you review your treatment plan with the dentist, our staff member will help you to schedule your next appointments, review payment options, and answer questions about insurance coverage of your recommended services.
For each service you will receive a comprehensive breakdown of cost and insurance coverage. Financing options such as In house financing plan, 3rd party “CareCredit” are available as well as our special discount dental plan that provides immediate coverage and discounts on all dental services. Our goal is to help you get the treatment you need quickly and comfortably.
Don’t forget to schedule your next preventive visit (regular exam & cleaning) appointment before you leave. It’s a great way to make sure you stay on track with your dental health.
