New Patients

Our office is currently accepting new patients from ages 3 and up!  We’re committed to making you feel like part of our family and are proud of the quality dentistry we provide in a compassionate environment.

Emergencies are seen promptly.  If you are having a specific problem, such as pain or a broken tooth, you will be scheduled for a “problem-focused” exam and we will do everything in our power to address your concerns.

If you have been seeing a dentist regularly, we invite you to schedule a continuing care appointment.    At this appointment, you will have your teeth cleaned and the dentist will evaluate your oral health.

For patients that have not seen a dentist in a number of years (it’s okay, we understand how life can get in the way!), we recommend a comprehensive exam.  A comprehensive dental exam is “health-focused” and begins with a conversation with the doctor about your goals, lifestyle and past dental experiences.  From here, we will complete a thorough oral examination including:

  • Review of medical/dental/social history
  • TMJ exam
  • Muscle exam
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Bite analysis
  • Tooth exam
  • Periodontal (gum) exam

If your needs appear more extensive, the doctor may recommend returning for a consultation one week following the exam.  This will give the doctor time to “study” your teeth and determine treatment options.  At this consultation, the doctor will review the findings of the exam including photos and a treatment plan will be established based on your goals and lifestyle.

Children are seen for a cleaning and exam on the same day, and will be thoroughly evaluated for decay (caries), gum concerns, bite discrepancies and crowding.
