Your First Dental Visit

Before your first visit with us, we ask that you Register for an account and fill out a “New Patient Medical History” form on our website.  Once you have registered, you will be directed to the new patient forms.  At your first visit, the doctor will want to review your medical history with you and discuss your dental concerns and goals. From there, the doctor will gather the necessary information to help determine the correct treatment needed to meet your goals. We strive to preserve teeth and keep your smile shining bright!

We intend to help you achieve a healthy smile and a healthy life by listening to you and treating you with respect. We see each patient as an individual and as part of our dental family. We will evaluate your needs through radiographs (xrays), exams, photos, and possibly diagnostic records (impressions). From there we will set goals and outline the steps to meet those goals. We strive to work with you to help you feel comfortable with your dental plan and treatment. Our goal is to help you preserve your natural teeth and build confidence in your smile.

We offer a variety of options. We utilize nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas, plus offer conscious sedation. Both doctors have undergone specific training and continuing education courses (provided by DOCS) for sedation dentistry. Sedation is a great option for those with moderate to severe dental anxiety. The type of sedation dentistry we provide is safe and less invasive than IV sedation but still very effective at helping you be comfortable and relaxed while receiving the care you need.

Yes! We follow the ADA and AAPD guidelines and start seeing children around the age of 1 to do an exam and nutritional counseling. By age 3, your child should feel comfortable and have established trust in us to receive routine dental care and cleanings.
