What To Expect On Your First Visit

From the moment you enter our dental office, we want you to feel at ease. Read these frequently asked questions to learn what to expect.

What will happen during my first visit?

On your first visit to our office, please arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to fill out our New Patient and Dental Health History forms. Your wait for your appointment will begin in our relaxing reception area, where you'll find lots of up to date reading materials and soft, roomy chairs.

Your first appointment will be approximately 90 minutes in duration. At the beginning of your appointment, your dentist will talk to you about your oral health needs in reference to your Health History form. Based on this conversation and a thorough dental exam, your dentist will develop a long-term dental treatment plan for you. 

Your comprehensive examination will include an oral cancer screening, a full mouth series of x-rays, photos, and a thorough exam of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw.

Throughout your appointment, your dentist or hygienist will take the time to answer your questions about your dental health and treatment options.

Healthy Mouth is an online, oral health self-assessment tool (app) that will provide you with an immediate estimate of your oral health.

How Does It Work?

Take the Healthy Mouth oral health self-assessment and get a report that breaks down your oral health into four categories: 

  1. Gum Health
  2. Bite / Jaw Health
  3. Tooth Health
  4. Smile Characteristics

The algorithms build into The Healthy Mouth app help you see what a new smile might look like – and can help you with a risk analysis of your gum, teeth, bit or jaw joint health.

Plus you'll get:

  • Projected heart disease risk score based on your Healthy Mouth Report.
  • The ability to track your daily brushing and flossing habits and bring it to your next dental appointment.
  • 75+ Patient Education Articles.
