First Visit

First Visit-s

When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all necessary insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to read and complete several forms that will help get you acquainted with our office.

If you would like to do this in advance, please visit our Patient Forms page.

Your initial exam will last approximately one and a half hours. We are very thorough.  It will include necessary x-rays, soft tissue exam/oral cancer screening, clinical and periodontal exam, impressions for duplicate stone models of your teeth, and intra oral and/or extra oral photos.  Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. We may also clean your teeth on this visit, if clinically indicated, and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
