First Visit


We have been told by many of our patients that their first appointment with us was the most thorough dental appointment they have ever experienced. We feel this one-on-one time with the doctor is the best way to get to know you and learn about your specific needs.

Our Doctors will review your medical history with you, and personally take a thorough dental history making note of any special concerns you have. This enables us to tailor your dental treatment to your unique circumstances.

What to expect

The clinical examination will include a TMJ assessment and oral cancer screening (including a velscope examination.) And of course your teeth, gums and bite are all examined and evaluated. During the process the doctor may use an intra-oral camera so you can observe and to help explain any concerns.

Finally, Our doctors will summarize any treatment required and answer any questions you may have. We will provide you with a treatment plan and cost estimate that will be reviewed with you by our office staff. Insurance and financial issues will be discussed and agreed upon, and your next appointment will be scheduled.

If you are also scheduled for a cleaning during your first visit, please allow a total of 2 hours for your initial appointment.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

You also enhance the quality of life through friendship.
Thank you, Jane Shell
