Smiling family with healthy teeth

First Visit

During your first visit, we will get to know you better, become familiar with your past dental experiences, and establish a treatment plan that will best meet your dental needs. We will clean your teeth, and X-rays will be taken.

Our dentist will also perform a thorough exam and evaluate diagnostic records, which help diagnose teeth decay, periodontal problems, and more. We will provide you with a detailed outline of any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

How often should I see a dentist?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting a dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and a professional cleaning. Our office also recommends a minimum of two visits per year.

What should I expect during my appointment?

One of our staff members will compile your medical and dental history during your first visit. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, make X-rays of your teeth as needed and complete a TMJ (temporomandibular or jaw joint) exam.

After reviewing your dental profile, we will discuss a diagnosis with you. If treatment such as a root canal (endodontics), braces (orthodontics), or oral surgery is needed, we will plan to treat you in our office or refer you to a specialist. We will discuss your options for treatment and fee payment and help you determine the best plan to fit your needs.

During regular follow-up visits, we will examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, clean your teeth and make treatment plans as needed. We will discuss any pain or problems you may be experiencing and answer any questions.

What does “painless dentistry” mean?

Painless dentistry is a means of ensuring your total experience in our office is as stress-free and pain-free as possible. We will discuss treatment options that may require no local anesthetic and, whenever possible, alleviate pain by the means most comfortable to you.

What if I have a dental emergency?

Please call our office as soon as you determine that you have a dental emergency. We will be glad to work you into our schedule if you have a dental emergency during regular business hours. After hours, over the weekend, and during holidays, please call our office for the doctor’s emergency contact number.

Are payment plans available for my dental treatment?

Yes. We can file with many types of dental insurance and will process your claim for you upon receipt of your co-payment. We accept CareCredit, MasterCard, Visa, dental insurance, and accept pre-payments.

What if I have a gap in my teeth, a chipped tooth, or teeth that do not respond to normal bleaching methods?

Porcelain veneers are designed to look like your natural teeth and are individually and permanently attached to the fronts of your existing teeth. Bonding utilizes a composite material made of plastic to fill in areas of your teeth and correct chipping and shape problems. Both porcelain veneers and bonding are color-matched to the rest of your teeth.

Emergency Information


Toothaches are extremely common and can be treated relatively easily. We recommend using warm salt water to rinse the mouth to displace any food trapped between teeth. Do not use aspirin on the aching tooth or the gum. If you need pain relief, we recommend acetaminophen. If the pain persists for more than a day, please call us.

Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek

If you are bleeding from a lip, cheek, or tongue cut, applying firm (but gentle) pressure with sterile gauze or clean cloth is best. You can also use ice to soothe the pain area. Please go to the nearest emergency room if the bleeding does not stop with pressure or continues longer than 15 minutes.

Broken Tooth

When a tooth breaks, it is crucial to try and collect any of the broken tooth fragments for reattachment. We also recommend rinsing the area with warm water and applying a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Please seek immediate dental attention.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

For a tooth knocked out, make sure to recover it by the crown (top) and not the root. Reinsert the tooth into the socket, and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, carry it in a cup of milk or water. You must rush to a dentist immediately.

Possible Broken Jaw

In the event of a jaw injury, tie the mouth closed with a towel, tie, or handkerchief. Go immediately to the nearest emergency room.

Bleeding After a Baby Tooth Falls Out

Fold a piece of gauze, and place it (tightly) over the bleeding area. Bite down on the gauze for 15 minutes. If the bleeding continues, please see a dentist.

Cold or Canker Sores

Over-the-counter medications will usually provide temporary relief. If the sores persist, visit your dentist.


Tooth Decay Prevention

Tooth decay is a progressive disease resulting from the interaction of bacteria that naturally occur in your mouth and the sugars consumed in your diet. Avoid unnecessary decay by sticking to a dental hygiene regimen, including brushing and flossing twice a day, regular dental check-ups, diet control, and fluoride treatment. Dentists can remove the decay and fill the tooth using a filling or crown.


Tooth sealants can protect bacteria-prone areas by sealing the grooves, preventing bacteria and food particles from accumulating. The sealants are made of a resin material applied to the back teeth, molars, premolars, and any area prone to cavities. Sealants last for several years but need to be checked during regular appointments.


Fluoride is a substance that helps teeth become stronger and resistant to decay. Regularly drinking fluoridated water and daily brushing and flossing ensures significantly fewer cavities. Your dentist can evaluate the level of fluoride in your primary drinking water source and recommend fluoride supplements. There are toothpaste, mouthwashes, and even dental flosses that contain fluoride.

Diet Control

The teeth, bones, and soft tissues of the mouth require a healthy, well-balanced diet. Different foods from the five food groups help minimize and avoid cavities and other dental problems. Consuming sugary and starchy foods should be limited, including candies, cookies, chips, and crackers. Healthier foods, such as vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and cheeses, help promote stronger teeth.

Office Policies

Our office is open Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your dental care. You can also schedule an appointment during these hours.


Once you have an appointment scheduled with us, please be sure to arrive on time. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may ask you to reschedule your appointment. We request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We know that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, and we appreciate your cooperation.

Financial & Insurance

The cost of quality care should never stand in the way of high-quality dental treatment. Our office is committed to providing dental care that is affordable and exceptional. Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. We do offer 6 months with no interest with CareCredit upon approval.


We can estimate your insurance coverage but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. You must bring your current insurance card with you to your first visit.

You are responsible for your account, and you should reach out to us if your policy has not been paid within a reasonable timeframe. If we are not contracted under your insurance, you will be given a copy of services and charges to file with your insurance claim form. We are not under contract with insurance companies, but will file your claims for you as a courtesy.

If you have any questions about our office policies, please contact us at 336-625-3275.
