Step 1: Complete New Patient Forms

Download our new patient forms on-line and print them, complete them and bring them with you to your appointment. This will expedite things upon arrival. You can complete those forms by clicking the button on the right side of this page.

Step 2: Bring Any Insurance Information

Please bring any pertinent information regarding your dental insurance with you to your dental appointment. We will gladly file any dental insurance claims on your behalf as a courtesy to you.

Step 3: Arrive at least 15 Minutes Before Your Appointment

Arriving early for your dental appointment helps us complete your registration to make sure we can solve any issues with your dental insurance and/or medical history prior to your appointment time with the dentist or hygienist.

Step 4: Prepare Any Questions in Advance

Bring a list of questions or goals you may have for the dentist or dental hygienist. This will help create a more thorough consultation, prevent any missing information and help us give you the best treatment possible.

Step 5: Relax, Your Are in Good Hands…

Our friendly dental team will welcome you to our office. If your appointment is with the dental hygienist, she will clean and polish your teeth, conduct a full examination and take x-rays. Afterward, the dentist will be consulted to check x-rays and conduct an additional examination of your teeth for signs of decay, check your gums for changes and other signs of oral cancer or disease.

After the checkup is complete, the doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-Rays and recommendations to improve your overall dental health or appearance.
 If additional treatment is required, you will be presented with a treatment plan and an estimate. We’ll schedule your next appointment for preventive care or for a respective procedure from your treatment plan.
