First Appointment

What to Expect During Your First Appointment

First impressions matter, which is why we go the extra mile to make your first appointment as convenient and comfortable as we can. For instance, you can fill out your patient forms online, before your visit, to save yourself a lot of time. You can also read through our wealth of patient information and find answers to common questions you may have before you even visit our office. Once you make it to your appointment, the rest is smooth sailing as we get to know you personally and thoroughly examine your oral health to establish a baseline.

A One-on-One Consultation

Dental care has to be personal by nature. Everyone’s smile is different, and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to the issues that can affect it. That’s why we spend your first visit getting to know you on a more personal level, beyond what your medical history and patient forms say. During your one-on-one consultation with our doctor, you can ask any question you may have, voice your concerns (even skeptical ones), and express in detail how you feel about your smile and what you want to change.

A Comprehensive Examination

Once we know your goals for your smile, we’ll perform a comprehensive evaluation and examination to determine how we can help you reach those goals. For instance, if you want to improve your oral health in general, we can offer comprehensive hygiene tips as well as professional checkups and cleanings. Your initial exam will help us determine if any dental issues are already present, and whether you need additional treatment to address them as soon as possible. We’ll also capture digital X-rays to ensure that your dental files are properly updated, and use the exam and images as a baseline to measure any changes in the future.
