Your First Visit
Please arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to fill out a New Patient form.
Please ensure you complete the appropriate pre-appointment forms before your first visit.
Your dentist will begin by reviewing your medical and dental history and completing a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam will include a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any required x-rays.
Based on your history and examination, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan for you. Your dentist will also take the time to answer any questions you have about your dental health and treatment options.
