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. Then, the doctor 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. At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for early signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed New Patient Information Form and Medical History Form (both located under Patient Forms)
- A list of current medications
- Your insurance card
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 60 and 90 minutes. Your time slot is reserved just for you, so we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations. We reserve the right to charge $25 for missed/broken hygiene appointments, and $50 for missed/broken appointments with Dr. Hoffman.
