Office Policies

Thank you for choosing our office, where we have created a comfortable environment in which you can feel confident about the dental care you receive. During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your dental needs.

When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. We ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past 36 months
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Your initial appointment will last approximately one hour. Our clinical staff will go over your dental and medical health histories, make only necessary x-rays and get a blood pressure. Our dentist will perform a thorough exam and evaluate diagnostic records, which help in diagnosing tooth decay, periodontal (gum) problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. After the examination, you will be scheduled for teeth cleaning and/or any immediately needed treatment. Following the cleaning a detailed explanation of findings and any existing dental problems will be made and proposed treatment and financial considerations will be discussed. 

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication, and we promise to speak candidly with you. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal – keeping your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
