Your First Visit
At your first office visit we will focus on understanding your current dental condition through a comprehensive exam. I will start by sitting down with you and discussing your dental history and medical history. Please print off the forms from this website and fill them out prior to your visit. Next, we will do an examination of your teeth, gums, TM joints, and chewing muscles. We will also take a series of digital x-rays that will show us what the visual exam can’t. If you are transferring from another dental office, please request they mail or e-mail your most recent x-rays to us.
We will then schedule you for your first visit with our hygienist and/or a treatment discussion visit to discuss our findings from the exam visit.
We encourage regular checkups for individuals age three and up. Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months so we can:
- Check for problems that you might not see or feel
- Check old fillings and restorations that might be leaky, chipped, or cracked
- Find early signs of decay and gum disease
- Check the overall health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue so we can treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkup appointments typically take 30 to 50 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
