What to Expect

We are as committed to providing you with the most thorough, comfortable care as we are with protecting your privacy and personal information.

During your first visit you can expect:

  • An introduction to our office and staff
  • A thorough examination of your mouth, teeth and gums
  • Any necessary digital x-rays to be taken
  • A complete Oral Cancer Screening Exam
  • An evaluation for any decayed, broken, or worn teeth
  • A thorough screening for any gum or periodontal disease
  • If needed, study models of your teeth

From this exam, we will list and discuss all treatment needed to restore your mouth to optimal health. We will then plan the appointments needed to reach this goal. Keep in mind the purpose of this visit is not for a cleaning. It is a chance to get to know you and completely evaluate your dental condition. We ask that you complete both a health history form and a patient registration form before your first visit. These forms are also available to be downloaded online. If you have dental insurance, please bring a copy of your insurance card with you. If you have any questions, please call our office at 757-253-0598. We look forward to meeting you, and we hope your visit is a pleasant one.
