Your first visit
Many people feel hesitant about searching for a new dentist that perfectly suits their needs. It is common for patients to remain with the same dentist for a long time once they become comfortable. However, under specific circumstances, such as moving to a new neighborhood, people have to find new doctors.
It can be easy to forget when you scheduled a dental appointment but now we will remind you with a "Smile Reminder" via email or text message, and even provide driving directions if it's your initial visit. Just click on the link below to let us know how you'd like to be contacted. We'll do the rest!

Our clinic offers a great variety of services to ensure optimal oral health. We have the expertise and skills necessary to provide you with a healthy smile. Below we provide information about your first visit to our dentist.
Scheduling a dental appointment
Going to see the dentist isn’t at the top of our list at times, and we wait until we have a toothache or have another dental issue to visit our dentist. It’s not a good decision, as it can complicate your condition and later require extensive treatment. Visiting our dentist should be scheduled routinely to treat and maintain your oral health. Therefore, after your first visit, it’s recommended to visit our dentist every few months to keep looking and feeling great!
Our dentist will recommend arriving earlier to your appointment, in order to fill out new patient forms. Patients also have the option to fill out these forms online, prior to their appointment. You have the option of completing the following new patient paperwork prior to your first appointment to ensure an expedient visit. Click the following link to download our new patient forms:
