What To Expect

At the time of your first appointment, we will listen closely to your concerns and conduct a thorough, comprehensive examination. We will take the time to give you the personal attention you deserve. Before any treatment begins, we will advise you of your options so you can make an informed choice regarding the best course of treatment for your specific needs. We respect our patients, and our goal is to provide the highest care in an atmosphere of mutual trust.

If you are coming for a teeth cleaning, it may be performed during your first visit or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. Your first appointment will take between 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

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! At your first appointment, please bring in your dental insurance information as well as a medication list.
