What To Expect At Your First Visit
During your first visit to our office, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Take X-rays of your teeth and mouth
- Talk to you regarding any dental issues/concerns you may have
- Examine your teeth and gums for cavities, early signs of tooth decay, or early signs of gingivitis
Our team of highly skilled dentists and hygienists will meet with you to develop an individually-tailored dental treatment plan. And of course, we’re here to answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to provide you with the best care that fits your needs- no pressure, no stress, no confusion!
After Your Appointment
Regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings are recommended every six months by the American Dental Association to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We will gladly work with your schedule to set a future appointment for regular preventative care after your visit.
If the dentist has provided any at-home care instructions pertaining to procedures performed during your visit, we will make sure you thoroughly understand them and provide written documentation. In case of an emergency or any additional questions/concerns regarding your treatment, you may call our office at (203) 879-9411.
