Welcome and thank you for choosing us to be your partners in achieving optimal oral health. This web site will help you get to know us better.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know or you can request an appointment online to.  We'll be happy to help you in any way we can!

Your First Visit

We are very excited to meet you and make your first visit as comfortable as possible.  Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill our your patient registration and medical history information.  Plan on about 2 hours for your first visit with us so we can thouroughly review your dental conditions and needs.  Let us know if you need to take medication before we work on your teeth.  Also, please bring along any medications you currently take so we can record types and dosages.  The more we know, the better we can care for you.

We'll also need information about your insurance coverage.  Let us know if anything changes between visits so we can update your records.

Check-ups

We'd like to see you every six months to keep your teeth in top condition.  NO matter how well you brush and floss, we must professionally clean your teeth to remove plaque buildup.  We can also spot the early stages of gum disease and start treatment before you have serious problems.

It's easy to forget about regular dental check-ups, but they're exactly what you need for good dental health.

So, for your health and convenience, we'll automatically set up appointments for you every six months.  We want to keep you smiling!

X-rays

We are now taking all digital x-rays in our office. They offer the advantage of a 90% reduction in radiation, and allow us to alter brightness and contrast as well as use color contrast in the image.  This ability to enhance the images has enabled us to better diagnose conditions before they become problems.  Besides detecting cavities, x-rays help us uncover cysts, abscesses, tumors and bone loss, also known as gum disease.  They also help us spot malformed or impacted teeth.   

Prevention

  • Regular checkups and cleanings benefit you by:
  • Protecting your natural teeth.
  • Keeping your smile bright and your mouth's appearance the best it can be.
  • Saving future discomfort, possible loss of teeth, and unnecessary dental bills by identifying and treating small problems before they become big ones.
  • Show you care by brushing and flossing daily, eating well-balanced meals, and visiting us regularly.
