We are delighted to have you as a dental patient and would like to share some information with you to help your first dental visit with us go smoothly. In order to expedite your first dental visit, please take some time to fill out our new patient forms and bring them to your appointment.

Initial Exam

As a new patient, you will receive a thorough oral evaluation that includes several diagnostic tests to assess your oral health and reveal any oral disease risk factors. This examination allows us to not only detect any issues for which you may need treatment, but it also gives a clear guideline of your starting point with us so we can quickly notice any changes that may occur to your oral health. We strive to promote optimal oral health and disease prevention, from cavities to oral cancer.
