Thank you for choosing our office. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. 

Your initial exam will last approximately an hour and a half. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment. Generally, x-rays will be taken allowing your doctor to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position and teeth decay. Oral hygiene instructions will also be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment. We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal-keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!

Your child's first visit

 The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that every child should have a dental check up by age one. At this first visit, we are able to get a peek at developing teeth, oral structures, and talk about dental home care. Your child will also get an application of fluoride varnish. It is completely normal for children to cry during this first appointment, but we are gentle and quick!
