Your First Visit
Your first visit to our office is an important part of your care. This visit will allow our team to evaluate your overall dental health, create a personalized care plan and explain any diagnosis or treatment options.
Please allow at least one hour for this important first visit.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit. Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern. (diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.)
Bring in a written list of medications you are currently taking.
If you have dental insurance, please bring your card for us to copy and verify.
A series of x-rays may be taken for us to determine your treatment plan. In our office, we use digital radiography which allows us to take X-rays using 50-70% less radiation versus conventional X-rays. Coupled with computer monitoring, digital x-ray technology allows us to enhance the images for better diagnosis of any dental concerns.

Both bridges and partial dentures replace missing teeth. A bridge is permanently attached to abutment teeth or, in some cases, implants. A partial denture is attached by clasps to the teeth and is easily removed by the patient. Patients are usually more satisfied with bridges than with partial dentures.
