Our Approach

The new patient’s 1st visit

Your first visit to our office will consist of a complete initial exam and x-rays if necessary. We will want to evaluate your old fillings, check for new decay, assess the health of your gums and supporting bone, check your bite and jaw joints, and provide an oral cancer screening. It will also serve as an information gathering session so that we can best assess your needs and concerns. At that visit, we will also schedule any necessary future appointments, i.e. cleaning or any necessary fillings. YOUR TEETH WILL NOT BE CLEANED AT THIS INITIAL VISIT. We encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns prior to your appointment.

Emergencies

We designate emergency time in our schedule so you will always be seen quickly for symptoms of pain, bleeding or swelling. A call number for the doctor on call can be obtained from our phone message during “off” hours and an “on-call” doctor is available if both doctors are on vacation.

Cleanliness and infection control are of the upmost importance

We have the latest sterilization technology and disinfect each treatment room after every patient.

Sleep Dentistry

For patients who require this service, we have an anesthesiologist available to come into our office.
