Your First Visit
Please arrive about 10 minutes early so you have time to fill out a New Patient form. If you prefer, you can complete the form in advance and bring it to your appointment.
Your dentist will review your medical and dental history and complete a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam includes 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.
*IMPORTANT: Any form submitted by email must be encrypted, to ensure it is secure. By submitting an unencrypted email form, you are consenting to an unsecured email. Alternatively, please print off the form, complete it, and bring it to our office.*
