Our office is committed to providing you and your family with the highest quality, safe and gentle dental care available. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about your first to a new dentist. We are sensitive to your needs at each and every visit, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing you with the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth. Our Hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, checking for any signs of cavities as well as any early signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease.Then, either Dr. Sheenan or Dr. P. will meet with you, do an oral cancer screening, discuss your X-rays and help to create your individual treatment plan if needed as well as take time to answer any questions that you may have.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
- Any dental appliances you may be currently wearing
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit our office, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 60 minutes. WE RESPECT THAT YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE SO WE NEVER DOUBLE BOOK OUR PATIENTS.
