What should I expect during my first visit?

Your dentist and hygienist will take the time to understand your dental and medical history. Your dentist will complete a comprehensive oral examination to check for things like tooth decay, gum disease, and other indicators of potential health or medical concerns. Your dentist will also want to understand your oral health goals to enable a more personalized approach to your dental care. You should plan for your first visit to last approximately 1-1 1/2 hours unless our office has noted otherwise.

What if I am nervous?

We understand that people aren’t always excited about going to the dentist, and some may experience true dental anxiety. We have found that communication is one of the best ways to relieve dental anxiety. If you are nervous about your upcoming appointment, please let our office know, and we will discuss ways to minimize your fear and make you more comfortable.

Thank you for the opportunity to care for you and your smile!
