First Visit

Your initial visit will usually consist of a comprehensive examination and review of your treatment options. Please refer to the New Patient section for the different types of new patient appointments. We want to answer all your questions at your first visit. If your treatment needs are complex, we may need additional appointments to take all the necessary diagnostic records. 

We want to make the transition to a new office as painless for you as possible. Please provide the following information prior to your first visit to our office.

  • The name of your previous dental office so we can request any current x-rays and records that might help us during your care.
  • A complete list of all medications AND supplements that you take.
  • If you have a dental plan, a copy of your card that includes your group number and personal id number.
  • Please complete the forms in our Patient Registration section to save you time during your first visit.


If you have had x-rays taken at another office recently, we can request that they be transferred to us or you can make that request. Please let us know before your first appointment. Recent x-rays are not universally adequate to our diagnostic needs and if new images are needed, we will discuss that with you in advance. We care about your exposure to dental x-rays and we follow the American Dental Association policy called ALARA which stands for As Low as Reasonably Achievable.
