What To Expect

At Our Dental Office

We pride ourselves on the comfort our patients feel from the moment they walk through the door. We think you’ll find it easy to relax in our cozy waiting room – warm up by the fireplace, watch TV, or grab a cup of coffee.

Char and Meg comprise our wonderful front office staff. They are very knowledgeable and will be happy to assist you and answer all of your questions.

New patients will be asked to fill out some paperwork, including medical history and general consent forms. These forms are available for download under the Patient Resources section of the website if you would like to get a head start at home before coming in.

Our biggest concern is your comfort. If you have any special requests that would make your experience at our office better please do not hesitate to ask.

At Your Initial Visit

At your first visit you will receive a complete dental cleaning from one of our experienced dental hygienists. One of the doctors will then review your medical and dental history, while getting to know you and your unique needs. He or she will then perform a comprehensive dental examination – including dental x-rays if necessary – as well as a head and neck soft-tissue exam to screen for things such as oral cancer.

Sometimes it may be necessary for the dentist to make stone models of your teeth, in which case impressions will be taken of your upper and lower teeth. These models will then be used at your next appointment to make a treatment plan based on your needs with your input.

During A Cleaning

It is generally recommended that your teeth should be professionally cleaned every six months. This allows early detection of things such as dental caries – the disease that causes cavities – or periodontal disease, commonly referred to as gum disease.
