Your First Visit
We know how important first impressions are, and we strive to make your first visit with us comfortable, pleasant, and stress-free. Dr. Garrison and her team are honored that you’ve chosen us for your dental care. We all work hard to continue to earn your trust every time you visit.
Forms to Fill Out
As a new patient to our practice, we need to gather some necessary information about you to provide you with the safest, most appropriate treatment. We’ll need you to fill out a simple form that tells us about general health, dental history, and prescription medications that you take.
For your convenience, visit our forms page and complete your paperwork before you arrive. If you can’t get this done beforehand, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
We’ll Welcome You Warmly
Our dental team will be expecting you and will welcome you warmly. They will check you in and take your insurance information.
During your brief wait, relax in our comfortable reception area and browse our latest selection of magazines. Use our Wi-Fi to check emails or catch up on the latest news.
Your First Dental Appointment
When it’s time for your appointment, you’ll meet with either Melissa or Tiffany, our dental hygienists. They will spend some time getting to know you and asking about any concerns you have.
The next step is a dental exam to check the condition of your teeth and note any areas of concern on your patient record. Your dental hygienist will then perform a thorough teeth cleaning and check for signs of gum disease.
Setting Up a Treatment Plan
After your cleaning, your hygienist will talk to you about any problems she finds and what treatment you need to correct them. We’ll verify your dental insurance to get an idea of what and how much your benefits cover.
We take all this information into account and develop a treatment plan that we personalize for all your needs, including your budget. Together, we’ll work to resolve any dental problems you’re experiencing and get your oral health back on track.
