What will happen at my first visit?

At your first visit, we will carry out a complete exam and cleaning. Your dentist or hygienist will eliminate plaque and tartar before polishing your teeth. A visual evaluation will reveal signs of decay, gum disease, or oral cancer.

Your first visit will also include x-rays. Our digital imaging affords sharper, clearer pictures than standard film x-rays. Plus, the negligible radiation exposure makes them safer for you and our team. The x-ray images will provide a good point of reference to monitor your ongoing oral health. They will also allow us to make appropriate treatment recommendations should you require additional care now.

Questions You Should Ask

When you come in for your first appointment, have a list of questions ready for your dentist. Good questions include:

  • Do you have a recommendation for a specific toothbrush, toothpaste, or mouthwash?
  • Is there a proper way to brush and floss?
  • How often do you recommend visiting the office?
  • What can I do about tooth grinding and jaw pain?
  • What treatments do you offer for cosmetic issues?
  • How can I prevent decay and gum disease?
  • What is the best way to address stained teeth?
  • What can I do about sensitive teeth?
  • Do you have tips for my child’s dental hygiene?
  • Does my teen need wisdom tooth extraction?

Treatment Options

If we determine that you would benefit from additional care, we have a wide variety of treatment options. These include:
