Your First Visit

What To Expect From Your First Visit

Though you may expect to get into your initial visit immediately, our team first strives to connect and discuss your needs and your overall smile goals. Every person has a different smile, and as such, each smile contains its own unique set of needs. We work with patients of all ages and walks of life in Ankeny, IA and the surrounding communities to help them enjoy optimal oral health and avoid serious smile issues. We’re currently accepting new patients and would like to ensure you are both comfortable and informed about your visit with our team. If you’ve never been to our office before, or if you haven’t been to a dentist in years, you are in good hands.

Identifying Your Smile Goals

Your initial appointment is an opportunity to closely examine your smile and assess its condition. Your review is important because it helps us determine next steps. In some situations, it may be necessary to identify and plan care for active threats before proceeding with a dental cleaning.

During this visit, Dr. Foust will begin to gather important information about your health history, lifestyle, and current oral health status in order to gain a thorough understanding of your needs. This visit also allows you and our team the opportunity to get to know one-another and work collaboratively to establish an effective preventive routine.

We value these visits because they give us the chance to build a strong patient-doctor relationship and plan your next treatments, whether that involves a simple checkup and cleaning, or a restorative or cosmetic treatment.
