First Visit

We are so excited that you want to know what it’s going to be like when you visit our office.  We want you to know that you’ll feel welcomed and cared for from your first to your last visit with us.  When you come to the office for your first visit you will usually be scheduled for 60 minutes.  Once you visit our office you’ll be given a tour and asked some questions to get to know you better.  Then you will have some photos and any necessary x-rays taken along with a quick exam done by our doctor who will then go over treatment options with you.  We will do our best to answer any and all of your questions about treatment timing, options, cost, and payments.  Some typical questions that will be answered are:


When is the best time to start treatment?

How long will treatment take?

What are my different options for treatment?

Will I need any permanent teeth removed?

How much will treatment cost?

What payment options do you have?


Many times treatment can begin that same day, saving you from missing additional school and work.  If this is the case additional time will be needed to get things started.  Sometimes either the timing isn’t ideal, a more in-depth look is needed, or additional information is required and you will be scheduled another future appointment.


Things to bring to your first appointment

  • An idea about what bugs you about your smile
  • Any questions you have for our doctor or team
  • A panoramic x-ray of your teeth if it was taken within the last 6 months
  • Your dental insurance information if you have any.  This will allow us to give you the most accurate cost for your treatment.
  • Your Dental/Health History Form
