We are always excited to meet our new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire, the patient information form, and the financial information form, if you have not previously done so online via our website under Patient Info – Patient Forms. 

Your first visit will be a comprehensive examination with the necessary diagnostic x-rays, if not provided, as well as information provided by your dentist, so that your situation can be thoroughly evaluated, and the ideal treatment plan can be determined. Any questions you may have will be addressed at this time, and the doctor will outline a solution that best fits your individual needs.
