What to Expect
As a local dentist, we create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families and work to ensure that they receive treatments in a comfortable and relaxed environment. When you come in for your initial visit please be sure to bring your dental insurance card and arrive early to fill out your initial paperwork if you have not already done so. Please bring a list of any medications you are taking. If you need antibiotics prior to dental work, please take them as prescribed. If you are not sure if you need antibiotics, please contact your doctor prior to your visit.
Your first visit begins with a comprehensive oral evaluation that usually lasts about an hour. After asking questions about your oral hygiene routine and concerns and listening carefully to your responses, our team will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about treatment options during your visit.
Whether you just need a cleaning, a filling, or even a brand new smile, we are here to help. Great dental care doesn’t just make for a fantastic smile, it also helps promote overall health and wellness. If you have a special occasion coming up or just want to brighten your smile, ask us about whitening or other cosmetic dental options. We want you to have the confidence to share your smile with the world!
Your Child’s First Visit
Our offices are conveniently located, comfortable and relaxing. As a kid friendly dentist office, we have books and toys available so that our young patients can relax and have fun while waiting to see the dentist. When it is for them to have their teeth examined, our staff will be both gentle and kind, taking the time to clean and examine teeth at a pace that is comfortable for your child, even if that means taking two appointments to complete a teeth cleaning. Schedule an appointment today to experience how working with a kid friendly dentist office can be a positive experience for both you and your child.
It is recommended that a child have their first dental check-up by the age of 1. Informing your child about their first dental visit is very helpful. At your child’s first visit, we will review the medical/dental health history form with you. We will get to know your child and help them to feel comfortable in the office by explaining what will happen during their visit, and showing them the tools and instruments we will use to help keep their smile healthy.
We encourage parents to accompany their child during their visit. This gives you an opportunity to see us working with your child and allows us to discuss dental findings and treatment needs directly with you. A thorough head and neck examination and evaluation of the teeth and gums are performed. Radiographs (x-rays) are taken only if necessary. If no treatment is needed, the teeth will be cleaned and a fluoride treatment will be provided.
When you come in for your child’s initial visit, please be sure to bring your child’s dental insurance card and arrive early to fill out their initial paperwork if you have not already done so. We look forward to meeting you and your child for your first appointment!
