Patient Resources

New Patient Forms

Let’s Get to Know You

We believe that dental care should be convenient in every way. For your convenience, we provide you with access to all the forms you’ll need for your first visit. Filling these forms out at your leisure means less time in the waiting room and more time to smile.

What to expect at your

first visit

Creating confident, healthy smiles for life is our mission and we are glad you have taken the first step. Routine dental appointments are an important part of maintaining your overall health and wellbeing.

When you arrive, you will be greeted by a Patient Coordinator who will check you in, notify the team of your arrival, verify insurance if applicable, and guide you through any necessary new patient paperwork. You can save time by completing the new patient forms in your appointment confirmation email before you arrive. A link to the new patient forms is also available here: include link to forms.

Once completed, a member of our team will escort you from the waiting room to a treatment room where they will review your dental history, medical history, and any dental health concerns or issues. The dental assistant  or registered dental hygienist will take your blood pressure and  will then take digital x-rays for the doctor to review. Radiation from digital dental x-rays is very low, especially in comparison to traditional x-rays. For more information, speak with your dentist or dental assistant.

The doctor will review your x-rays and complete a comprehensive oral evaluation that also includes an oral cancer screening.  The doctor will also review any concerns and discuss their clinical findings.  

A prophylaxis (dental cleaning) will then be completed and the patient reappointed for the appropriate next steps after this visit.  

Expect your first visit to last anywhere from 60-90 minutes.
