Your First Visit
What you can expect at the first appointment
Our primary goal during the first appointment is to get to you know you, and to figure out what your goals are, both short term and long term. We truly believe that optimal dental care is a collaborative effort between the doctor and the patient.
For instance, some patients may want to makeover their entire smile, and are ready to go the distance towards making their dream a reality, whereas other patients are perfectly content with what they have, and want us to help them maintain the current status of their oral health.
Regardless of what a patient's goals are, we emphasize prevention and conservative treatments, as well as the elimination of any diseased states early on, before they have a chance to progress into the chronic stages, which can be difficult and expensive to treat.
At the first appointment, we will make a treatment plan for you that takes into account your current pre-existing conditions, as well as your goals/desires. We will also prioritize the treatment plan accordingly. Our treatment coordinators will also discuss financial options/planning to ensure that lack of finances is not an obstacle in getting the dental treatment you deserve.
