If you are visiting us for the first time, we want to make sure you are prepared for your first dental appointment. Getting ready ahead of time and knowing what to expect will ensure your time with us is successful. Whether it’s been your first visit in a while or you are simply looking for a new primary general dentist, we look forward to meeting your dental care needs.

  1. Clean Your Teeth

You don’t want to wait for your appointment to brush and floss thoroughly. It should be part of your regular routine. Plus, we can tell if you haven’t made it a habit. However, you should brush and floss right before your appointment. It’s a way of making sure your cleaning goes smoothly. Although, we know many people are fitting in their appointment within their busy day. So, if you haven’t had a chance to brush, no worries. We’ll take care of cleaning your teeth when you arrive.

  1. Fill Out Your Paperwork

We encourage you to fill out your paperwork before your first dental appointment. Fortunately, we’ve made it easy for you to fill out at home. Simply follow the link and instructions on our paperwork page. If you have any questions at all, our team can help. We want to make your first appointment go as smoothly as possible.

  1. Prepare Your Insurance Information

If you have dental insurance, make sure you call us in advance to confirm we are in-network with your provider. This reduces stress and cost-related concerns later down the road. However, if you don’t have insurance, you are more than welcome at our practice. We encourage you to join our membership plan for savings on certain services and coverage on your preventive care.

  1. Write Down Your Questions

Do you have concerns about a certain area of your mouth? Or do you want to set goals, such as improving the appearance of your smile? Prepare your questions ahead of time. It can be overwhelming to meet with your dentist for the first time. So, we want to make sure we’ve addressed all of your concerns.
