What To Expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
There are a few ways to schedule your initial appointment. This is designed to help us match your expectation when you arrive. When you schedule your appointment, please designate what you are looking for. If you are unsure, we ask that you discuss this with our team so we can help point you in the best direction.
1- New patient comprehensive exam with the doctor- This is the most ideal way to enter the practice because it gives you an hour with the doctor to discuss your specific issues without having to include a hygiene appointment. If it has been a while since you've seen a dentist, or you know you have some extensive issues either cosmetic, or structural, this is the best approach to care. It allows us to maximize our time with your and create the best possible treatment options for you.
2- New patient exam with hygiene appointment- Another way you can become a new patient is with the hygienist and a shorter examination with the doctor. Every new patient receives a comprehensive exam, but this is more ideal for patients who have been under consistent dental care. If during your visit there are a number of things to discuss, we may ask for you to come for a complimentary follow up consultation. Some patients may also need the scaling/root planing or deep clean during this visit- which will require additional coordination. So, while we expect to provide a thorough cleaning during this visit, the condition of your teeth and gums dictate your care and if they need more attention.
3- Emergency Specific Visit- Some scenarios command attention to a single issue. This could be pain, swelling, or a broken tooth. While we cannot guarantee that issue is fully and completely dealt with- as some dental issues require the attention of a specialist or multiple appointments, we can ensure that we develop a treatment plan for you. It is still recommended that all new patients get a complete and comprehensive exam, but if you do have a single specific issue we are glad to help as best as we are able.
