Making your first appointment can be difficult for many anxious people, so we assure you that we will make this as easy as possible for you when you call. During your initial call you’ll speak with one of our patient advocates so that you can tell us what you’re looking for, and we will explore with you what your first visit may include.

For patients who are extremely fearful, the first visit may be a Meet and Greet in our library. When you arrive, you will be met by our warm and caring staff. It’s a chance for you to walk through our doors, meet some of our team, and get a feeling for our office.

If you are ready to begin as a new patient, your first appointment will start a discovery process so that you and your dentist can learn about your current level of health. It starts with conversation in the library as we gather information regarding your health and discuss with you your wants and desires. When you’re ready, you’ll move into an exam room. If you’re comfortable, we’ll take X-rays and look in your mouth. But you will never be judged or embarrassed by your dentist or any member of our team. Our team is warm and welcoming and will always work to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

Some patients come to us as referrals from another dental practice for sedation and specific treatment, such as root canal therapy. If this is your situation, you’ll be invited for a sedation consultation to meet the doctor and discuss your needs.

After your consultation and/or exam, when we know what treatment path you wish to take, we will carefully guide you through every step of the process to ensure you feel safe and comfortable. During a visit before your sedation experience, you’ll receive pre- and post-operative instructions, read and sign consents, and finalize financial arrangements so that on your day of treatment the focus will be completely on your comfort and care.
