What To Expect
Our Doctor and Staff will always treat you with complete compassion and the utmost of respect. The dentist will perform a complete oral examination and discuss any treatment you may need. This initial examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer.
Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit, or it may be scheduled for a follow-up visit, depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.
Your first appointment will take between 1–1½ hours. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
What to Bring
To make your visit as pleasant and productive as possible, there are a few things you should bring with you.
If you’ve had dental x-rays in the last six months, please bring them to your first appointment. If you don’t have them, new x-rays will be taken. With just a few simple forms, we’ll ask for relevant medical history, any medications you might be taking, your dental history, and any dental insurance coverage you may have.

Do I need to arrive early for my first dental appointment?
If at all possible please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early with any requested forms.
What do I need to bring to my first dental appointment?
Please bring the following forms to your first appointment:
- New Patient Form

- Dental Insurance Card (if applicable)
- Identification (Driver’s License, Military ID or State issued ID)
How long will my first dental appointment last?
Appointment lengths can vary, but please plan on a 1 to 1.5 hour time for your first visit.
Why do I need to go to the Dentist regularly?
Most people will end up waiting until they are in a crisis before visiting the dentist office. However the majority of the time, the crisis that they come in for could have been avoided with consistent preventative treatment. While many people think that they are saving money by avoiding regular visits to the dentist, they actually end up paying much more money for a dental crisis that could have been avoided.
How can I get my kids to brush their teeth?
We recommend trying to make it fun!
If you set an example of being enthusiastic about brushing your own teeth, you’ll be surprised how your children will also become enthused as they often mirror the behaviors of those closest to them. If you’re still having a tough time in this area, please feel free to contact us for additional suggestions.
Why are dental X-rays necessary?
Many diseases of the teeth can simply not be seen with a physical examination of your mouth.
A dental X-Ray provides us with a great deal of information such as:
- Areas of decay between the teeth or near fillings that are not visible by the naked eye
- Bone infections
- Gum disease (Periodontal disease)
- Developmental abnormalities
