Your First Visit
Your first visit to our office may be a little different than your first visit to other offices. Because we value the relationship with our patients, your first visit is an hour of one on one time with the doctor. An oral exam, x-rays, periodontal exam, and other screenings may be completed.
However, the most important part of this hour is your chance to relay to us your wants and concerns. It is in this hour that we hope to establish a relationship with our patients that will lead to years and years of ideal oral health.
