Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing 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 with you, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then Dr. Powell or Dr. Tiller will do a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and gums. She will discuss any findings with you as well as your concerns to create your own individual treatment plan. The doctor will allow plenty of time to answer any questions you may have.
We will also be able to clean your teeth that day if your gums are healthy. If you have gum disease or if it has just been quite sometime since your last cleaning, you may need more time and a second visit may be required to clean your teeth.
Bring your smile, but also remember these for your first appointment:
- Remember to complete your online forms or come 15 min. prior to your appointment to fill out the forms in our office.
- Bring your insurance card
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
