Your First Visit
Please arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to fill out a New Patient Form. You may also fill out our New Patient Form online* prior to your appointment.
*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 start by reviewing your medical and dental history with you. They will then complete a comprehensive dental exam including a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite, and jaw as well as any taking any required X-rays.
Based on your history and examination, your dentist will discuss any issues that were found and work with you to develop a long-term treatment plan. Your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you may have about your oral health and treatment options.
