Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, 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 forms, and take x-rays of your teeth and mouth. We will have your teeth checked for any signs of decay and have your gums checked for signs of gingivitis and gum disease. Depending on the condition of your teeth and how your oral hygiene is, you may also have your teeth cleaned and polished the same day. Dr. Thor will meet with you to discuss your x-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information forms
- Your insurance card
- Your drivers license for proof of identity
- Your list of medications
- Your previous dental x-rays and records (if available)
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
