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 we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, Dr. Cary will review your dental and medical history forms, we will capture fully digital X-ray images of your teeth and mouth and a very detailed evaluation of every tooth, gum health evaluation, oral cancer examination, orthodontic analysis, and more. Then the doctor will meet with you for a consultation to discuss all findings we have collected and help you create your individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
Our #1 goal for you is to have a healthy mouth. When planning your schedule, this initial visit usually lasts about 90 minutes.
At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, always checking your teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
Remember to bring these to your first appointment
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
- Your driver's license
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommend a visit to your dentist a minimum of every six months for regular checkups and routine preventive care to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our hygienists, please remember most preventive care appointments will last between 60 and 90 minutes.
