What To Expect
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. Please take a moment to download the above paperwork and bring them with you to your first appointment. If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card(s) with you as well. We are happy to help you obtain your insurance benefits.

During your first visit, the dentist will examine your teeth, perform an oral cancer exam, take and review necessary x-rays, and make an overall assessment of your oral health. You will meet several members of our dental team as they will be assisting the dentist in the assessment of your oral health. If we discover that you are in need of dental treatment, a personalized treatment plan as well as cost estimates will be prepared for you prior to beginning any procedures. You will have the chance to review the treatment plan and ask any questions you may have.

If you would like, you can take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors and staff before coming in. We look forward to seeing you at your first visit.
