At Your First Appointment

Our staff is here to help you feel comfortable and excited about your experience at our office. This could be your very first dentist’s visit ever, the first visit in a long time, or your first time here after going to a different dentist your whole life. No matter the situation, we will help you have a wonderful experience so you can feel confident in coming back.

The first step is to talk about your dental history and needs. We have patients of all ages with unique needs, so it is important that we get to know you so that we can create the best treatment plan possible. This gives you a chance to tell us about yourself and express any concerns you may want to address. This is also a good opportunity for you to tell us about the treatments you are interested in.  We can offer preventive care and cosmetic solutions for you.

After that, we will do a standard examination to check your teeth and gums. This is to look for any potential problems such as signs of decay, cavities, or swollen gums. During the first trip, we’ll also do routine cleaning. Whether you are new to this office or new to going to the dentist entirely, our staff is here to make your appointment comfortable and easy.

Treatment Plans For You

Many of our patients come to us for the standard bi-annual dental visits. If your oral health is in decent shape, then we will schedule your next appointment for six months. If we notice that you may need some extra help, you and your dentist can produce a plan that feels right for you.

If you have cavities, we can recommend getting fillings done. We can schedule this in our office for you, so you do not have to worry about going anywhere else. If we see that you are showing early signs of gum disease, we can create a periodontal plan that can help reverse the signs and prevent future problems.

Maybe your oral hygiene is perfectly healthy, but you would like to brighten your smile. We can offer teeth whitening services at home or in the office so that you can be confident again.

No matter what your goal is, we are here to help. Every patient is different, and your treatment plan will be unique to you.
