Your First Appointment

Those who haven’t already completed their new patient paperwork should plan to arrive a few minutes early and bring a copy of their dental insurance card, if applicable.

Most new patients’ first visits at the practice are for checkups and cleanings. A new patients should reserve approximately 70 minutes for their initial appointment. A hygienist will meet with the patient and visit with them, take any necessary X-rays, and chart various information related to existing dental work or gum disease. If the patient’s gum tissues are healthy, a cleaning can be completed on the same day.

Next, Dr. Smith will come by to meet with the patient and discuss any specific concerns. He will also complete a comprehensive examination, oral cancer screening, and give recommendations related to his findings.
