Please read the following information and complete the online forms prior to your visit.

Initial Visit

Thank you for choosing Regarding Dentistry for your oral health needs.

As a new patient, we want to provide you with an overview of what to expect during your first visit to our office. When you arrive for your appointment, our friendly team will greet you and process your patient information. The online intake forms will allow our dentists to get to know you and your individual needs.

Your initial exam will last approximately 90 minutes. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals for your dental treatment. Typically, we will take X-rays to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position, and tooth condition. Upon completion of your examination and X-rays, our dentists will provide you with a comprehensive dental health report based on their findings and exam results. Our dentists will discuss recommendations and procedures, proposing an individualized approach specific to your dental health.

Our dental hygienists will perform a full general cleaning, or begin any recommended therapy for treating gum and periodontal disease. They will also provide oral hygiene instructions, along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth.

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment. We’ll share our diagnoses, discuss alternative treatment options, and suggest our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with a common goal: a lifetime of excellent oral health, and the perfect smile!
